Taylor Alison Swift was born on December 13th, 1989. Even at her young age Taylor knows what she wants and will work hard to get it. As a currently popular artist in both main stream and country music, Taylor Swift has a lot of good advice to offer people.
Writing is the Best Medicine
Most, if not all, of Taylor songs have been written by her, about her experiences. This is her way of coping and dealing with things. You may not think that you can write yourself, but it’s not about the quality of what you write – it’s about getting things out of your system. You can also use songs which others have written to make you feel better.
Use Your Experiences to Your Advantage
Taylor takes emotional moments in her life and uses it to fuel her inspiration to write more songs. You can use any emotion or moment in your life to fuel yourself into doing things. There is no point in sitting around crying; you may as well use this emotion to your advantage and do something productive with it.
“To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.” There is a lot more to what Taylor says about being fearless, but the important thing to remember here is that you can be fearless and still have fears. It is only human to be afraid, and if you live in spite of those things then you are showing that you are better than those things which you are afraid of and you are not letting them rule your life.
Life Is Not a Fairytale
“When I was a little girl I used to read fairy tales. In fairy tales you meet Prince Charming and he’s everything you ever wanted. In fairy tales the bad guy is very easy to spot. The bad guy is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is. Then you grow up and you realize that Prince Charming is not as easy to find as you thought. You realize the bad guy is not wearing a black cape and he’s not easy to spot; he’s really funny, and he makes you laugh, and he has perfect hair.”
You Need To Work To Be Able To Reach Your Goals
“My parents raised me to feel like I was never entitled to success. You have to work for it. You have to work so hard for it, and sometimes then you don’t even get where you need to go.” Sadly sometimes no matter how hard we work we will never reach our goals, but at least we will be able to say we tried. Trying your best is all anyone can ask you to do, and if you do not work hard or try then you are just making things harder for yourself.
If Things Do Not Go Your Way, Fight Harder!
Just because life is not turning out the way you planned, people are pushing you back and stopping you from reaching your goals, do not give up! It is important to remember that the only way for anything to change is for you to make it happen.
If You Have Something to Say – Speak!
“I think the words you stop yourself from saying are the ones that will haunt you the longest.”
Make You Words Count
Even if you are not someone like Taylor who is known worldwide you should still make your words count as you are teaching the next generation how to live. You also never know what people will remember of the things that you say.
There Is Nothing Wrong With Country Music
Many of her fans are most likely not about to go listen to any other country artist, but if they are listening to Taylor then they are opening their minds and actually allowing themselves to listen to country music – something which people can be criticised for liking. And if they are watching country music award shows because of Taylor then they are being exposed to new music. She is teaching the world that there is nothing wrong with country music and that country music artists have some great songs too.
Beauty Is Not About Looks
You can be funny, happy, sad, going through a rough time, sarcastic, etc. and still be beautiful. You are what makes you beautiful, not your looks. What is on the inside is far more important than what is on the outside: “If I meet someone and they have that magical quality about them that makes them unforgettable, it’s that they are sincere and honest in whoever they are.” Which brings us to…
You need to be yourself to really allow the honesty and sincerity to shine through and to truly be beautiful.
Some People Just Are Mean
There are bullies in the world, but we cannot let them get to us. We will grow up, move on, and hopefully move away from them. All they will ever be is mean, and one day you will be big enough so that they can no longer hurt you.
You can take me down with just one single blow
But you don’t know, what you don’t know…
Someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean
Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean
