It’s no secret that Taylor Swift is one of the biggest artists in the world right now… she is relatable to so many people, but I’m about to tell you my story and why I feel like you need to watch this.
The Australian leg of Taylor’s 1989 World Tour started in Sydney on Saturday night, this was my 4th time seeing Taylor on tour. I have been there from the beginning…right in the front row when she did her Fearless tour.
But, somehow this tour is life changing; it takes you on a journey and you walk away feeling so inspired and happy.
It might seem like I am just a girl writing behind a computer a screen... but in fact I am just like you.
We all have struggles.
We all have insecurities.
We all have things we go through.
We all have things or people we need to turn to when times get tough, and for me that’s music…
When 1989 was first released there was a song on the album that was a clear stand out for me from the first time I listened.
It’s a song called Clean.
It instantly hit close to home because of something I was going through at the time. Like a lot of people I was a target for online bullying. It wasn’t like it was a new thing to me, I was a target all throughout school as well. But somehow it’s not something you can get used to.
While I can't repeat what was said to me, because it was that intense, I received it for months and months everyday single day.
Sometimes when people say things about you, even though you try your hardest to ignore it, you start to believe it… it consumes you.
Until this song taught me otherwise.
If you’re not a die-hard Taylor fan, you probably wouldn’t know the song… but you’re about to.
When she performed it on Saturday night, I felt the whole stadium feel what I felt that first time I listened to it.
Every show, Taylor has a speech before she sings Clean, and this is something that I believe everyone needs to hear in their life. Somehow, out of 76,000 people, she made each person feel like she was talking just to them.
I will never forget that moment, standing in the middle of that many people with tears running down my face.
It was like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
I felt like it was okay to be myself.
I felt like everything was going to be okay.
Even if it doesn’t feel like it at that time… It will be
I felt clean.
Taylor Swift’s birthday falls on December 13 – just one day after her final Australian concert.
