Taylor Swift's Power of Positive Thinking

Every year, I think Taylor Swift’s skills as an entertainer have always improved. I mean, I always thought she was great since the beginning. But even still, Taylor Swift did say, “This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.” I really like her power of positive thinking. And guess what? It totally worked for her! I feel like more people enjoy not only her music, but enjoy her just being her too!

I feel most people, including myself, recognize the flaws within ourselves much more than our talents. I need to do a better job at recognizing my talents more. But, is it bad to recognize our flaws? I don’t think so. If we are aware of our flaws we can improve them! We can make changes in our lives if we work hard and always think positively, just like Taylor Swift!

If you have ever listened to Taylor Swift’s music, you’ll know she has totally changed her genre of music (though she still sings about all her x-boyfriends).  With that being said, I am going to guess that when Taylor Swift actually said her quote mentioned above, she wasn’t referring to her music, but maybe some flaws she saw within herself.

So my question for all of us is: Why not start making changes in our lives right now?

We can start fresh with our new jobs, new classes, and new experiences this fall. But honestly, we really don’t need external factors to help us decide to change. We can make a difference in our lives and improve our flaws, no matter what day it is! It can be January 1st, the first day of fall semester, or just ANY day. Any day can be the start of a new year!

All of us can be better than we were the day before! I believe all of us can improve. We just need to believe we have the power to make our own lives better, no matter what day it is. We can do it!
