    Hey @Printemps missed this post as I was enjoying the weekend away with old school friends - lots of trips down memory lane! Other things i am looking forward to - paid for my overseas trip to Switzerland, Ireland and UK in July to see 2 of my children - has been 3 years since I have seen them. Also one of my sisters has booked a trip to QLD to visit - have not seen her for several years either - excited about that.

    I am continuing with self development audios & books, exercising, doing some casual remote admin work, visiting friends and family. Life is great without the self- loathing, bare bank accounts, and wasted hours!

    @Judes Wow! your Europe trip sounds amazing, it must be such an exciting prospect to see your kids after so long! And seeing your sister as well! So many exciting things on the horizon! The positivity and optimism in your post is so inspiring, good on you!

    Hello everyone! It's a bit of a drizzly overcast day here in Melbourne, so I'm happy to be thinking about better things right now!

    This week I'm looking forward to

    1. House sitting for my mum and spending time with my cat!

    2. Doing some home cooking and getting back on top of a normal eat schedule

    3. Going out of town for a few nights with a friend in two weeks!

    How about everyone else?

    Happy Saturday everyone! It's time to think about what exciting/fun or nice things we have coming up for us!

    1. I'm going away with my friend for a few nights! We want to have time to totally disconnect and just focus on us and where we're at mentally!

    2. After being on an exercise ban for a long time I am now able to get back into the gym!

    3. Fulfilling the feeling o motivation I currently have. I want to start recognising my motivation more and actually setting myself up to achieve what I know I am capable of. This takes time But I know that the hard work will pay off!

    Hi again,
    Yep it’s Saturday and I’ve been busy with packing up our house as we are moving in over a weeks time.
    I am motivated to get things done.

    Hello hello! It's time for our weekend activities! This week it is 3 Things to look forward to!

    I have a comedy show tonight which I'm really looking forward to. It's the comedy festival here and i's always nice to have a laugh!

    It's starting to get chilly here, winter is my favourite season, so I'm looking forward to it cooling down and being able to get rugged up, have some tea and watch the rain

    I bought a present for a friend and I am very excited to give it to them! I love getting little surprise gifts for my friends

    Morning!

    Hmm....3 things.

    1. I'm looking forward to my first pay this week, it'll be my first without actually putting a big chunk away for gambling. (and then exceeding that limit)

    2. Checking my roster and planning future events like catch ups with family and friends over the next few months

    3. Starting to create a small business website

    I hope everyone is doing well. I wish you all strength to beat this addiction. :-)

    Hi everyone! Another Saturday has rolled round and it's time to share a few things we're looking forward to!

    1. I've finally joined a new gym and am getting into a routine there

    2. Moving on from relationships that no longer serve me. This one is difficult and a bit of a double edged sword. It is hard to say goodbye to people but it is always most important to look after yourself.

    3. Going away with a girlfriend at the end of the month. Getting out of town and clearing my head will be such a welcome change :)


    How about everyone else?
