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.

- The Robots.

adkpoohI need to forgive someone....

I need to forgive someone….the harder I try…the worse the grudge gets. I even took time apart. Half the time we are together I am still feeling these slams like nothing is better. I have NO idea what to do. Do you cut the poisons out of your life completely? Or, do you understand that you will NEVER see eye to eye with everyone? 6 months ago

gigabyteheroPain shopping.

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free, and then discover that the prisoner was you.”

Pain shopping is something I am guilty of. If I never allow myself to stop feeling the pain, if I never let go and forgive, then it can never blindside me and catch me off guard ever again.

The only thing that has worked so far for stopping this from happening over and over.

Its a way to defend myself and protect myself from another trauma, but I hold myself prisoner. Eventually I have to figure out how to reconcile and forgive. 7 months ago

seakissthis worked so well so I'm going to try it again

This applies to my overcome PTSD goal, too. Last year, I did it about T. and it worked almost seamlessly. It is the first thing I’ve ever actively done I think that has helped. Many approaches in therapy do not work for me, so this was fantastic, (although I’m sure therapy helped me subconsciously? I don’t know)

I will do this about my hometown I think. I really need to forgive it.

If you don’t know what I’m referring to, it’s this project right here. I invented it out of frustration, and it helped alleviate so much. 10 months ago

CompassionistForgiveness is cleansing

There were times in the past when I had failed to forgive those who had harmed me. This caused my suffering to linger. I eventually discovered that when I forgave those who harmed me, I liberated myself. Forgiveness is cleansing. Forgiveness creates new beginnings and new possibilities for good. It is also important to forgive oneself for one’s mistakes. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that no wrong took place. It means that the wrong doer is forgiven and is given a new chance to make better choices. 11 months ago

idkbrblolfeeling better today

(a lot of coughing, a little aching, a lot of rolling back-&-forth trying to get to sleep. Not much to complain about.)
While sick, I figured I was well-enough to (at-least try) to explore it mentally etc.
Did some wrestling with demons, old & new.
