10 Taylor Swift Lyrics To Inspire All Of Us To Be A Better, More Graceful, And Confident Woman
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuXNumBwDOM

"Me" just came out and it inspired me to go back and listen to all of Taylor Swift's albums. Even though I was only in elementary school when she debuted her first album, I almost feel like I've grown up with her. She's taught me so many lessons and is someone whose music I can turn to when I'm happy or sad.

While some people may think that her songs are basic, I couldn't disagree more. Her lyrics speak to millions of people all around the world and empower the next generation of powerful female artists, innovators, and leaders. Here are ten of my favorite Taylor Swift lyrics that inspire me to be a better, more graceful, and confident woman.

1. “Band-Aids on’t fix bullet holes”

Giphy

People are going to hurt you. They're going to do things that you're not going to like, and they're going to say things to hurt you. Oftentimes, these can be the ones who are closest to you, and they make accuses like they're just being honest with you. First off, you should surround yourself with people who hype you up and don't tear you down. Secondly, words hurt, and it is okay to feel upset when people are unkind to you.

2. "Someday I'll be living in a big old city and all you're ever gonna be is mean”

Giphy

Don't let people discourage you. People are going to say you can't own your own company, can't be a senator, or can't be student body president. Keep dreaming, keep slaying, and keep being you. In the end, the people who were mean to you will probably want to be you.

3. “The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama”

Giphy

There will always be something to worry about. Oftentimes we stress so much about trivial things but Taylor got it right. There's always going to be stuff going on, and we need to stop worrying about things that are out of our control.

4. "When we go crashing down, we come back every time.”

Giphy

Even when you're feeling low, don't lose hope. There is always a light at the end up the tunnel and we're stronger than we think. Whether its a breakup, a bad test grade, a broken bone, or a missed opportunity, we come back every single time.

5. “'Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream.”

Giphy

Just because someone looks like a queen doesn't mean they have their life together.

6. “We're happy free confused and lonely at the same time.”

Just because you're happy doesn't mean you can't be lonely. I feel like oftentimes people tell us we have to suppress our emotions or that we're being too dramatic. It's okay to feel a surge of emotions and don't let people tell you that you have to feel a certain way about something or someone.

7. “In your life you'll do things greater than dating the boy on the football team.”

Giphy

I know right, at some point in our lives we thought it was so important for us to date the most popular person in school. I think this taught me that oftentimes we get so caught up in wanting superficial things. What we think is the most important thing in the world one day, we might totally forget about a couple of months or years later.

8. “Heartbreak is the national anthem. We sing it proudly.”

Giphy

Even on our darkest days, Taylor Swift has taught me that I'm never alone. Instead of bringing each other down, we should be building each other up. We should recognize our heartbreak and band together to make it through this crazy world.

9. “I've found time can heal most anything and you just might find who you're supposed to be.”

Giphy

Sometimes in the midst of the chaos within life we just need to take a step back and let time pass by. We're always constantly growing- emotionally, physically, and psychologically- and sometimes we just need time to get over some of our hardest obstacles. In the end, we'll have learned from our mistakes and will be that much stronger.

10. “Stay Beautiful”

Giphy

No matter where you are or what you're doing, stay true to who you are. You're beautiful, and the world needs to know that.

So thank you, Taylor Swift, for always being there for us. Thank you for always being yourself and for bringing so much class and elegance to an otherwise chaotic world. Thank you for inspiring me, and for being a voice for millions of people all around the world.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

823

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
