I had the pleasure of taking my 8th and 9th-grade cousins to their first concert this past Saturday night. They were so giddy about seeing Taylor live; they were buzzing with excitement. It went a little something like this: 52,000 people filed into Gillette Stadium. The lights dimmed, the crowd went CRAZY, and the show started with Taylor’s song “Sparks Fly” set to fireworks. Yes!

It started pouring about halfway through the show, but Taylor embraced it 100% and kept thanking the crowd for standing in the rain simply to hear her sing. It was a night full of 13s. And sparkles. And hand-shaped hearts. And I must admit, I have such a soft spot for T. Swift.

For anyone else at the show on Saturday night, that lyric she had written on her arm was THIS.

A couple other thoughts:

Let one part of your goal be enough. Take any small piece of action you can. Set a reminder in your phone. Write a draft of that email you’ve been wanting to send. Commit even 10 minutes to starting that project.

A Quote-able: “Since the introduction of genetically engineered foods in the mid 1990s, there has been a 265 percent increase in the rates of hospitalizations due to food-related allergic reactions.” Intrigued? Check out the Food Inc. documentary.
