    good morning everyone! it's time again to come together and share three things we're looking forward to! It's always nice to have something fun on the horizon, it can help keep our spirits up and remind us of the good things we're working towards!

    1. Getting back into the gym after some time off

    2. putting some new posters up in my flat

    3. my group call with my family overseas

    How about everyone else @yep123 @Kevcollingwood @spentitallagain @Starboy @AKA boy @Daisy-Lee @IP @smokey86

    hi everyone! This week I'm looking forward to

    1. finishing the current book I'm reading! I got into a slump so it'll be good to get back into reading

    2. having some slightly warmer weather, it's totally freezing her in Melbourne!

    3. having some down time! It's been a busy few months and I feel like things will hopefully be slowing down a little bit in the near future.


    how about everyone else? what are you looking forward to! It can be long term or short term

    @Kevcollingwood Well done on making it til the 11th day!
    It's nice to hear you have recovered well from the HA. Doing activities you enjoy is a good way to keep yourself feeling positive. Keep up all the good work!

    hi everyone! it's Saturday and time for us to think about what we're looking forward to!

    - having some leave from work, I have ten days off, which will be nice

    - having brunch with my friend next week

    - the fresh pasta I am having for dinner tonight, from the market

    @Printemps it’s good to be thankful of the little things I get that, I every day think myself lucky that I still have electricity and aren’t sleeping on the street. My life could be so much worse. I work with people with disabilities atm looking after a man that had a brain stem stroke, most people die from this ( if me I would of wanted to) he has immense struggles and challenges he’s brain works perfectly but he can’t move a limb, I feel guilty for struggling with this when there’s people like that wishing they were able like me!
