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.

MMiller0601Well, anxiety clearly needs work...

You know, you can get to the point where certain issues really become a hot button for you, and really ramp that anxiety up more than you expect. Someone posted something about autism and vaccines on my FB page (well they tried – this is one reason I limit that) – and despite my lack of belief in the tie, my anxiety shot through the roof this morning. Sigh. At least now, I recognize what is going on and I know what helps with my anxiety…still, I thought I was better than this. 11 months ago

MMiller0601Working on the anxiety

Well, I haven’t posted much lately, but it has been a busy time – my kids were born on 6/7/05 and 6/11/07 so there were two birthdays within a week. And of course Father’s Day.

Anyway, I’ve been working on my anxiety. Tonight I tried a “de-tox” bath, which was VERY nice whether it detoxes or not. Epsom salts, baking soda, and lavender essential oil in a HOT bath for 20 minutes. I feel WONDERFUL.

I’ve also been working on gratitude. I write down five things in the morning and five things in the evening that I am grateful for, work or personal life. I think that it is helping shift my focus from the negatives, the fears, the uncertainty around me and helping me calm down. I am also eating better overall and trying to watch quantities as well, plus walking at least 2 miles every day. All of it seems to be helping. 13 months ago
