I'm Just Gonna Shake it Off

Starting a couple weeks ago (when I posted about my week from You-Know-Where), I decided to challenge myself to have a positive attitude about life and to stop complaining so much. You know, most of the stuff I worry about or get down in the dumps about just really doesn't matter all that much. I won't say I've been completely succeeding in this area, but I have been better just because I've made a conscious effort. There have been times when I find myself dwelling on the negative and it shows in how I treat others (especially the hubby). If I see it happening, I stop and focus on something good.
Anyway, what are the odds that while I'm trying to make this transformation in my life, the one and only Taylor Swift releases the absolutely perfect song for the situation? Actually, we are talking about T-Swizz here so the odds are probably pretty good. But I thought it was pretty cool regardless.

I stay up too late, got nothing in my brain
That's what people say mmm, that's what people say mm
I go on too many dates, but I can't make 'em stay
At least that's what people say mmm, that's what people say mmm

But I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop moving
It's like I got this music in my body and it's gonna be alright

'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

I'll never miss a beat, I'm lightning on my feet
And that's what they don't see mmm, that's what they don't see mmm
I'm dancing on my own (dancing on my own), I'll make the moves up as I go (moves up as I go)
And that's what they don't know mmm, that's what they don't know mmm

But I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop grooving
It's like I got this music in my body saying it's gonna be alright


'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Hey, hey, hey, just think while you've been getting down and out about the liars and dirty, dirty cheats in the world you could have been getting down to this sick beat

My ex-man brought his new girlfriend
She's like "oh my God", but I'm just gonna shake it
And to the fella over there with the hella good hair
Won't you come on over, baby, we can shake, shake, shake

'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

I, I shake it off, I shake it off (x a bunch)

Isn't it great?? So catchy and sends an empowering message. I want to "shake it off" like Taylor does. I want to know I'm awesome no matter what the haters say. I want to fake it till I make it and when I do make it I want it to truly be shaken off. I want to be positive and smile all the time and try to encourage others by doing as I go because really, there is so much better stuff to be doing with my time that worrying about stupid, little things!

What do you think of Taylor's new song? What songs are inspiring you right now?
Thanks for reading!

P.S. I really wish I had been invited to one of her Secret Sessions! Don't you? What's up? What do you have to do to get invited anyway?
