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.

God forgave us so we should forgive the people that hurt us… 5 years ago

m1ssM4F14Forgiving Those Who Hurt Me

These past two weeks have been the hardest I’ve ever gone through and along the way I’ve made enemies with the people I are about most. They hurt me, they brought me down, and they broke me. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this low in my life before, but at the same time, on my way to a brand new high.

It took a lot of courage and inner strength for me to realize that if I didn’t forgive them, I would harp on this for months. I used all of my willpower to forgive the boy who hurt me, the friends who lied to me, and most of all, myself. I’ve learned that sometimes you have to get hurt in order to be a better person, and sometimes you need to break in order to be repaired.

I needed to be repaired, and that’s what the pain and breakage was for. All I had to do was forgive those who put me in that place, because everything happens for a reason, I guess I have to learn to get used to that. 6 years ago

a_reasonlet go

Forgiving is letting go & i guess i’ve finally managed to forgive those because i’ve let go what has happened in the past. I know it’s something hard that most of us can’t do but sometimes it’s best for us. 6 years ago

fayeforeverfirst,remember what forgiving is

I don’t forgive easily. Once someone has hurt me once I can’t trust them again. Even if I try to move on I just fall into this problem of wanting to let go and wanting to cling on. 7 years ago
