When Taylor Swift gave her now infamous "It was you" acceptance speech at the Grammy's a couple of years ago all I could think was "yes girl, yes." When I heard this morning that the speech was turned into an inspirational video by the Recording Academy to inspire young women everywhere...well I couldn't help but think that this is exactly what young women need right now.
In this world we live in it is hard not to get caught up in all of the heaviness around us, and if the past few days have been any indication of what is to come, it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This video couldn't have come at a better time for all the young women, it gives them hope, hope that if you keep working hard, if you keep striving for what you want you can achieve what you set out to do.
Is this video meant to be political? No. Is this post meant to be political? No. This video and post are meant to inspire, to encourage and to give hope to young women everywhere at a time everyone could use a little inspiration, encouragement, and hope.
