Do you know how hard it is to get Taylor Swift tickets? You literally have to win a lottery!
Well, one of my daughter’s friends did win the lottery, and my daughter ended up with 2 tickets, one for each of us.
People I’ve spoken to assume I went to the concert as a favor to my 24 year old daughter, but I went because I’m a Taylor Swift fan.
Being that I’m a 53 year old male, this seems to catch people by surprise.
I guess people assume that a TSwift audience consists of 70,000 screaming 8 year old girls.
It doesn’t. At least not anymore.
Maybe it did years ago when Swift first hit the scene. Maybe that early image of Taylor is stuck in people’s minds.
But people change and grow.
Now, Taylor is a mature woman in her 30’s, a masterful songwriter who addresses adult issues, a highly successful businessperson, a world-wide superstar with a large catalog of hits, and in some cases- a political activist. In short- she isn’t 17 anymore.
So don’t be surprised if her fan base includes a wider demographic than screaming, young girls.
Taylor Swift and her fans aren’t the only ones who grow and change.
We all do. Well, most of us anyway.
Is there someone in your life who you might be judging as if they are still in the same state they were when you met them years ago? A co-worker? A friend? A neighborhood kid? Your own kid? Are you seeing them as they are now, or as they they were then?
I would hate to be judged on the basis of who I was many years ago. I’m sure we all would.
Let’s look at each other with fresh eyes. We might meet somebody new. We might even hear some great music.
