Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

What a hard lesson for me. To accept what is given, and not try to change the outcome. God has placed things and arranged things in such a way that I must learn. I must learn that I am not in control. He is in control of all things. 5 years ago

sweetface221It is what It is

Just accept it for what it is basically. Can’t have the other person take it back, cant wish it back. I must move on foward and allow God to love me unconditionally. 5 years ago

sweetface221Just deal with the reality of the situation

I cannot change what has been done, or said. I cannot make someone feel a certain way about me, or make someone love me in that special way I think I need to be loved. I must accept things for what they are, I must accept that this is not about me, I must accept that no matter what I am still a good person who is loved by God.

I must accept that things have run its course and we are at the end, I must accept that I cannot change a person and turn them into the perfect being that I deem fit for me.
I must accept that God has to intervene on my behalf and take control of this runaway train before it derails.
I must accept that living alone is an option, but I will never truly be alone. God looks out for me 5 years ago
