Be like a child

I am not a writer but that doesn’t mean I don’t write. Hers’s a little something that has been on my mind.

“Be like a child”

Be like a child and make a new friend

Be like a child and get to know them

Be like a child and ask why they are sad

Be like a child and ask to understand

Be like a child and point out a problem

Be like a child and learn how to solve them

Be like a child and come to a conclusion

Be like a child and find a solution

Be like a child and go out and explore

Be like a child and seek to learn more

Be like a child and stumble and fall

Be like a child and stand big and tall

Be like a child and dust off the dirt

Be like a child and learn to be hurt

Be like a child and know its ok to be afraid

Be like a child and know it will get better each day

Be like a child and start growing up

Be like a child and don’t give up

Be like a child and be scared of the dark

Be like a child and leave your mark

Be like a child and let your mind wonder

Be like a child and understand the word sonder

Because we got lost in our time and forget who we are.

We have to go back and learn to restart.

It is the innocence that blinds us from the negativity.

It is the media that opens our minds to cruelty.

Love like a child, that is the most pure.

Fight the pain, that we continue to endure

We are one country and we stand together.

Tough like a rock and delicate like a feather.

Much love

-Jocelyne

Cafecito time

I want to start off this post by congratulating you on all that you are doing. Whether it is getting a new job, surviving the first week of college, or just ending your shift at work. It doesn’t matter what you are doing, only know that you got there, you made it, and keep going. We all work hard to pay our bills or perhaps provide for our expensive lifestyles (guilty). Whatever it is, congrats, because you’re doing it. Now I need you to do something:

Just stop

Take a breath…take a deep breath. Take a moment and simply relax. Even if you are going through a hard time, know that things will get better. Life happens, that includes good and bad things. You have made it this far. There are moments where we are so busy and don’t stop to give ourselves a break. So for today, your task will be to take a chill pill.

have some cafecito

read an old book

visit a friend

take a jog

stay in and listen to the rain

plugin your headphones and forget about the world.

 

You deserve it. Then keep on doing you boo. You’ve made it this far 😉

Hello World!

Welcome my little misfits to a real talk session with Joss. For my first topic I want to address someone special…YOU! Yes you eating that easy mac or just reading this to procrastinate on your homework (or both…totally not judging). I want you to know that you are so special in any shape, size, color, and form. Since you are so special I want you to embrace that inner misfit in you. Get out there and be YOU! Follow YOUR dreams not the dreams of your family or friends. Everyone is here for a purpose. Don’t know what it is? Well, go find it. How you may ask? The key is being fearless. Don’t be scared to take risks. As one of my favorite sayings go, “The probability of falling scares me but the thrill of the jump is well worth the risk.” Do something different this year. Set new goals. Travel to places you never been to before. Life is too short to keep on reliving the past or staying in your comfort zone. You will be amazed on how much you are capable of. Don’t be scared of what people think or what they might think. Instead, surprise them! Be spontaneous! You are not here to please people. Do what makes you happy.By the end of the day its your happiness that matters.  But hey, I’m just #KeepingItReal✌️
