I never thought Taylor Swift would ever be in the title of one of my blog posts. I guess I’ve been rather snooty about her and never really gave her a chance. My friends (bro-sis) Matty and Vanessa invited me over to watch her Speak Now World Tour thing and I decided to have an open mind about it. I’ve been trying to keep my eyes open for some new inspiration for this new string of blog posts titled Inspired. So Taylor Swift is serious business people. I love to write (and attempt to play) music but lately i’ve been having a writers/learning block. Watching her tour really got me excited again about focusing on my music and working harder at learning to play my instruments (Banjelina-a banjo, Franklin-a uke, and an acoustic and electric guitar that have yet to be named). I really need to maintain this motivation because writing music doesn’t always go the way you want it to. It just gets pretty discouraging sometimes, but there’s always going to be a break through. You just have to work through it. Something else that inspired me in this same light was this video my friend J.V. sent me.Hope you blog readers out there won’t get discouraged in whatever you’re trying to do. The greatest thing is having friends to push you to keep trying. I’m definitely blessed with a ton of inspirational and encouraging friends!
