“Be Good To Me”
Hello 2019… and hello to you. 🙂
To the beautiful person reading this blog post, I have a few things I need to say before we kick things off. If you are reading this, it means you have safely entered into 2019, I thank God that you are here, and you made it safely. It also means you have stayed. Even in my LONG absence (which honestly, there is a reason for), you have continued to wait for this notification in your email box, I THANK YOU. So much, for your continued support and love for the Just Katleho blog <3
My heart is happy. Not only to be writing this blog post, but to just be writing again. I spent so much time filming and editing, I lost my love for writing. As I write this post, it is the 1st of January 2019, a gloomy, cold and rainy day in Johannesburg, and honestly, I couldn’t have had it any other way. I’m sitting in my office space/beauty room, in a new place, candles burning, a cup of green tea by my side, and just contentment in my heart. I’m am the happiest, in this moment, in this space, then I have been in a very long time.
I looked at my blog before writing this post, and my last post was in September of ’18, and honestly, it feels like it’s been WAAAAYYY longer. I am glad to be back though. I have missed this. I have missed YOU. This has always been, and will always be really, the place that feels like home.
What Has Happened Since?
A lot. WOW, A LOT.
- MOVING HOUSE. Yes, I moved house. I moved into a new “temporary ” space, as it’ll definitely not be forever. This much I know. As a reader of this blog, you will be familiar with the fact that I struggle with anxiety, so we not going to delve too much into that. It did though get a little rough for me in Oct/Nov of ’18, and I knew that to be able to manage this, I need to be in a space where I can have QUIET. Peace of mind, silence so that I can manage all the crap that comes into my head. Moving was one of the biggest moves I’ve had to do. I take my private space, and the energy of where I am, VERY SERIOUSLY, and I knew that If I want to get better, or at least manage this a little better, I need environmental CHANGE (much to the sadness of my sister, but we spoke about it, and she is my biggest supporter, so she understands). I struggled a lot but since moving in here, honestly my heart is getting better. Slowly. Day by day. My challenge now is decorating this place to my hearts content, where it’ll be an oasis and haven for my peace of mind. It’s coming along well though. I will not lie <3 🙂 So far though, soooo good. Oh, and I’m into plants now, so um yea, I want to make this place a FOREST!!! LOL
- INTERMITTENT FASTING. Yes!!! I did that too!!! Shjuuuuuuu, big big change this one!! 🙂 I will have a post and youtube video solely dedicated to my Intermittent Fasting, why I started, what changed, how I feel about it now, and all that has happened since. This post is not for that, but, so far, so good 🙂 Slipped off the wagon in terms of what I ate in the festive season, but I have been sticking to my eating and fasting times <3 More on that a little later.
- LIVING. I’ve just been trying to live. Get through each day. Even on the days I was feeling like utter and total crap, I tried to be in the moment, not hide on by being on social media, or try and ignore it (as I usually do), I embraced it, and focused on trying to manage it, or change it. The only way to change a situation, is to live it. Go through it. So, I’ve been trying to come back towards myself, and focus on what matters in that moment. Family, friends, life- and trying to enjoy that. Even took long breaks on social media too. It felt good.
For the most part. I am VERY glad to be back. I’m in a better place, missed you guys, and missed this- sitting in front of my laptop, and pouring out my loves, my likes, dislikes, beauty, life, everything, onto the keypad.
Thank you for going on this journey with me. I wish you a BEAUTIFUL, prosperous, mind healing, should restoring, memory making, goals achieving, personal identity realising and FULL 2019. On all the levels of your hearts desires <3 The fact is, we are back, and we on a roll!
BRING IT ON!!! <3
Until the next one,
Live in Light and Love,
