Shake It Off

For those who don't know yet, I am one of those millions who are avid fans of Taylor Swift. I love her songs, her style and everything else in between. She's actually the reason why I cut my hair short on the spur of the moment. If not for her, I'd never had the guts to even go to the salon. haha! :) So anyway, I've been listening to her song Shake It Off for quite sometime now. (which is why I got inspired to dress up like Taylor here: red top + black shorts) Taylor's fashion is pretty simple yet she always looks elegant in them. Okay, another reason to like her more. lol :)
Setting aside this obsession of mine with Taylor, I wanna share with you guys a realization or maybe more of a day to day reminder for us. Everyday we face different problems and people always have something to say about us even if we're not doing anything wrong. But at the end of the day, what's important is we know who we really are. Although we may sometimes feel bad about these things, listening to Taylor Swift's song tells us that we can't let them affect us. No matter what life throws at us, we gotta get back up and just shake it off.

Looking back, one among the myriad life lessons I learned from my 20 years of existence is to focus on the people who love us and are important to us, because these are the people who truly care for us, who accept us, and who are in no doubt always there for us no matter what. So I say, there's no need to look so glum, like me, you can always break into this song. "Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate.. I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake it off!" :)

What do you think about this look? Have a nice day everyone! :)
