I really disliked the quote that was on the 43Things homepage for a while, “Changing your life is hard. Doing it on your own is harder”. No thanks, I don’t want to think about things being difficult, a struggle, a bad experience. Yay, I’m so glad that quote was nowhere to be found when I logged on today.
Instead I found great new things like links to people “I can help”, people who shared my goals. Great new vibe, I like it a lot :) 2 years ago
A guy in a different queue got my attention and asked me if I would like to go through checkout before him, as he had a lot more shopping than I did.
I thought that was particularly kind and worth a mention :) 2 years ago
I receive daily email quotes. This one helped me this week;

The last few days have been cryish, but I am feeling more peaceful now. I’d rather keep my 43T as my happy place, so I plan to just be writing about the good things right now.
Hug to my friends and thank you. I’ll send some messages in a while.
Happy Friday :) 2 years ago
Received some very sad news which I’m trying to work through.
Might be a while (hopefully only a short while) before I feel like myself. Might not be posting anything over next few days or so.
Be well x 2 years ago
From time to time I randomly pick a selection from my ‘destiny cards’.
I might have a question in mind, or just feel like seeing what the cards say.
It gave me a nice feeling to pick up these three cards, in this order;

The shoot was fun and it was nice to feel all beautified :)
I’ll probably take the photo down again soon as I do like to keep my 43T presence as anonymous as possible. Just wanted to share a photo from my trip with my friends on here who are so supportive and cheer me on with my goals. 2 years ago
on 43things while I have a brief opportunity to be online while on my trip. Would be nice to have more of my own time while here, as that is my idea of a perfect holiday. It has been good to be reminded of how good I have it at home, and good to see relatives that I don’t see often enough.
Wish I had more time right now to do some commenting and posting, but will be back properly in a week x

I’m probably not interactive enough on this site. I don’t think I’ve ever thanked the people who are kind enough to subscribe to and cheer my goals. I haven’t been able to make entries as often as usual lately. By the time I get to my computer it can be late at night and I’m halfway to the clouds zzz
Life is going well, I’m edging forward with a lot of things. Wish there were more hours in the day!
Just wanted to say thank you dear friends :) 2 years ago
I’m unexpectedly swept up in work and personal busyness.
Feel a bit overwhelmed, mostly in a good way. May not be able to keep up with the entries as often over the next week as I’m going away for the long weekend.
This quote was on the side of the screen as I was making this entry;

I’ve been paying attention to the quotes on the side of the page. I’ve read this one before, but I particularly like it;
“Come out of the circle of time, and into the circle of love.”
- Rumi 3 years ago
on something very cool. I hope I’ll get it within the week. Until then I wait impatiently :)
Will let you know what it is, once it happens! 3 years ago
I enjoyed my holiday, it was great to see my relatives. I also had a good time using my new camera. But I’m also very happy to be back, as home is the best place where I can move forward with most of my goals at the moment.
Hoping everyone on 43T is having a great 2010 so far 3 years ago
Will be back in a few days to catch up on entries and cheers :)

over last few days. Hope to feel better soon. Also hope to find my bluetooth attachment so I can post more photos! 3 years ago
wonderful and unpleasant at the same time.
So many friends remembered, which really touched me.
I took the day off and went out for lunch and dinner, with a lazy hour at the bookshop in between.
I returned to work today. My manager didn’t bother to utter a word about it. Which makes his generous contribution to the receptionist’s birthday last month even more glaring.
So I just walked out and made my way home. Next time I speak to them it may be to give notice.
I do hope the rain clears up, as I’ve organised friends to get together in the park on the weekend. Wish me luck
ps. thanks again Freedom for remembering 3 years ago
My internet connection is still intermittent. Going to get it looked at. Hope to get back into it in a few days 3 years ago
to the internet at the moment. My home connection is down so I’m using my mobile phone to make this entry. Hopefully I’ll be back online properly soon to do some more updates 3 years ago
I usually consider myself a cheerful and optimistic person, but over the last few days I’ve been engulfed by this feeling of nothingness.
I just don’t know what direction to take in life and feel rather stuck. I need to make changes, need to complete some more of these goals, and most importantly, I need to believe in myself 3 years ago
I had an interesting dream last night. This is probably more deep than what I usually like to share, but I am just in a sharing mood at the moment :)
Often while I’m within the dream I still seem to know that the events are imaginary. However, last night I had one of those dreams that felt very real, and I couldn’t distinguish that it was a dream until I woke up the next morning.
Within this dream I was watching a documentary. I saw someone who looked like me on the screen, in the background. To my surprise, I recognised that it was actually me on that screen. All the surrounding noise was cancelled out, so all that you could hear was the conversation I was having in the background. I remembered watching that person on the screen, knowing it was me, but also having a feeling that I didn’t know this person very well. I don’t remember any of the dialogue, but I remembered thinking as I watched myself on the screen, “With what she revealed just then, I’ve just discovered a different side of her. Whatever she revealed just then has won my unconditional trust and love”.
So I’m going to take that a sign that I’m on the right path :) 3 years ago
I had locked myself out of my Flickr account, but tonight I managed to work out how to get back in :) I’m thinking of adding the pics from my photo goal to my Flickr page 4 years ago
from my calendar of Buddhist quotes, felt like sharing this;
“When you are washing the dishes,
washing the dishes must be the
most important thing in your life.
Just as when you are drinking tea,
drinking tea must be the most
important thing in your life.”
-Thich Nhat Hahn
I want to bring myself into the moment as much as I can, and this quote articulates it perfectly 4 years ago
Magic 8 ball predictions
Here’s what I recommend…
* go scuba diving in the Great Barrier reef
* work for an NGO
* do a cartwheel
* take speed
* try hash
Should I try again?
8 Ball, what sort of influence are you? Not just one,
but 2 drug suggestions? Drugs are terrible for the
complexion! 4 years ago
I feel more energetic tomorrow. I even feel too tired to cheer right now. That’s not like me! 4 years ago
I was trying to upload a photo and got the red x instead. So I then tried to do it about four more times, with no luck. My images are jpeg, so they should be fine. I checked my internet options and they seem normal. If anyone knows why the red x, please let me know! 4 years ago
To my shock, I discovered I had somehow by accident rated a goal “Not worth it”. To make it worse, this goal to wish a fellow 43Ter Happy Birthday. Don’t know how that happened, but I seem to recall this happening before. I’ll have to monitor the ratings of my goals to ensure this doesn’t happen again! 4 years ago
It would be good to have another option instead of removing or giving up on a goal, like “I don’t want to do it anymore”, or “I don’t want to do this at the moment”. I found out the local bath house isn’t the type of bath house I want to visit, but I’m not really “giving up”. I just didn’t want to go there anymore 4 years ago
Magic 8 Ball suggests I “Cook a lot of soup and bread this winter”. Well I can barely remember what winter feels like, as here at home it’s mid summer and sweltering! 4 years ago
The other day I noticed my 8 Ball predicted this goal for me, “Sleep with my French teacher”? I remember my two French teachers at school. No way!!
“Visit St Petersberg” always comes up. Might be something in that. Spain and Wales first though 4 years ago
