    I second that @PnorkelPW and @Lhiver.....I'm really looking forward to it warming up a bit! :)

    I'm also looking forward to having lots of fun this weekend for my girlfriend's birthday and also catching up with friends to watch the UFC on Sunday.

    The third thing I'm looking forward to is delivering Peer Worker Training over the next 5 days, it will be a great journey to go on with people and I'm grateful for the opportunity to facilitate something like this.

    Hello Hello! We're having a grey day here, so let's try to bring some positive energy out and have a think about what we're looking forward to!

    I'm looking forward to having a phone call with one of my friends tonight. We haven't seen each other in ages so it'll be nice to have a catch up!

    I'm looking forward to seeing my family next week, as they live far away and I don't see them often.

    I'm looking forward to a call with the other side of my family tomorrow. They live overseas so our weekly face-times are really nice!

    I guess right now connection is very important to me!

    How about everyone else?

    It's been great seeing the things @Exfitspo, @Simply me and @Lhiver are looking forward to.

    Such simple comforts and delights of life :)

    - I'm looking forward to coming out of lockdown again and enjoying a simple meal out and to catch up with friends.

    - I'm planning a trip up to Cairns in September and I'm really looking forward to that, craving some tropical weather big time!

    - Seeing my girlfriend after a week of working from home in the lockdown bubble.

    I am looking forward to getting the house that I have applied for two days ago... (manifesting :lol: )
    I am looking forward to going for a walk at 6pm.
    I am looking forward to um.. getting a hug from my partner.

    @ScorpionPW Cairns is really beautiful. It's my hometown. I miss the tropical weather.... and surprisingly the crocodiles :lol:

    @Lhiver Thank you for tagging me in this post. I appreciate it.

    Another weekend has rolled around! But it's a sunny day here which has really lifted my mood! So to keep the good energy going, let's think about what we're looking forward to!

    1. This is a bit silly, but I'm going to Ikea with my mum tomorrow, which I'm very excited about because I find it really calming and nice! I will probably feel less happy at 10PM tomorrow putting a bookcase together, but we'll see lol

    2. I'm having dinner with two friends I haven't seen in a few months on Sunday! This year I have been trying very hard to reconnect with people and try to maintain healthy social connections that bring out my best self!

    3. More sunshine, it's such a nice change to have some good weather, and it really does affect ones mood!

    So what is everyone else looking forward to?

    I'm in lockdown for the forseeable future (Sydney area) and now working entirely from home. I don't have an office setup yet but will be trying to sort that out this weekend. I *wish* I could go to Ikea!!

    What I'm looking forward to:

    1. Sorting through the junk that has accumulated in the designated office space to create actual space
    2. Buying a new desk
    3. Buying some new plants to greenify my home environment
