“I want to say to all the young women out there…”

I’m neutral about Taylor Swift’s music, so the only thing that made my day when she won 2016’s ‘Album of the Year’ at Grammys was her acceptance speech.

I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you’re going, you will look around and you will know — it was you, and the people who love you, who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world.

As a young woman, I can relate. It’s daunting sometimes to push yourself to keep going when your environment tells you that you’re not good enough or makes false promises. But you have to. Not to prove them they’re wrong.but to prove yourself you’re right.

But to prove yourself you’re right.

Hello! Whatever brought you to my blog, I hope you found something interesting to read. Writing to me is more than just sharing my throughts with the world, it's my way to make sense of my own thoughts in the first place. There's something about putting my mind to words that make things simpler and easier, and I think it shows in my posts. Occasionally, I write about lifestyle things, but more often I 'think out loud'. A little bit about me: I usually describe myself as 'a Russian, living in London with a British husband and working on Spanish brands in a French company'. It's as fascinating as it gets because I'm just your normal 30-something young woman trying to enjoy life as much as possible. Happy reading, Elena HJ
