My name is Jojo and I don’t care how many followers you have on social media. I don’t care what your engagement is like, I care about how well you know yourself. I care about how you make people feel and how you feel about yourself. I’m interested in what you do that brings you joy. I want to know what keeps you awake at night and which changes you wish to see in the world.
I don’t care about other peoples perceptions of you. I care about how real you are when we speak. I may compliment you if I like your jacket, shoes or hair but deep down I am more interested to hear about your passions. I don’t care about the people who let you down, I care about who you are thankful for. I want to hear about how you look after your well being. I don’t care about who has rejected you nor do I care about mistakes you have made in the past. I care about the lessons you have learnt and the areas you feel that you have grown. I don’t care about how much money you earn or where you live. I care about what makes you laugh and cry. I don’t care about how busy you are. I want to know about the times you are present and feel most alive. I don’t care if you have rock solid abs or extra cushioning, I care that you eat and move in a way that feels enjoyable and authentic to you. I don’t care about which school you go to or went to. I care about what you want to do with your time here. I don’t care about what other people expect of you. I care about what excites you and makes your heart beat a little faster. I don’t care what your job title is, I care that you do something that makes you feel alive. I don’t care if you shop in charity shops or designer boutiques, I care that you wear things that make you feel fabulous. I don’t care if you are into make up or the natural look. I care about how your eyes light up when you talk. I don’t care about your gender or sexual preferences, I care about your vibe and energy. I don’t care if you would prefer not to sing or dance with me. I care about the kind of music that makes you feel unstoppable. I don’t care about your status, I care about your intentions. I don’t care if you bake and craft with your child, I care if you raise them with empathy. I don’t care how often you have sex with your partner. I care that you feel loved and valued. I don’t care about your flaws, I care about how you use your strengths. I don’t care how many likes you get on your social posts. I care that you feel every word that you share. I care that you take the time to be true to who you really are. I care that you do things that make your eyes light up. I care that you live. I care that you feel. I care that you connect. I care that you connect with humans, animals and our planet. I care that you look at the sky and admire a beautiful cloud pattern, sunset or star. And realise that there is a place for you in this world. I care that you know your value and that you stop being so hard on yourself. My name is Jojo and it’s incredible to be here.
