Taylor Swift spent her afternoon before hitting the road for three more dates on her Speak Now World tour on the patio of her home, enjoying the sunshine and writing a blog. According to Taylor, the day was absolutely perfect.
“We’re talking chirping birds, blinding sunshine, a just-the-right-amount breeze,” Taylor wrote. “There’s the distant sound of power washing from someone else’s deck and my feet are up on the patio table. I just ate a really awesome sandwich. Such a simple, good day.”
Life is good for Taylor. Between celebrating her eighth No. 1, headline a massive sold out world tour, winning awards and appearing in television and movie roles, she knows she’s lucky. In her blog, she ponders the idea of when things could change for the worse. Her musings are well beyond someone of only 21 years old.
“Sometimes I get scared that there’s got to be some balance to the way things work in the universe – like you pay for good days by then having bad days, you pay for joy with pain,” she wrote. “Like if you have the most perfect week ever, watch out! It’s about to get really awful! Some sort of minor or major tragedy is bound to strike! I hope that’s not the way it all goes down. I really hope not. Because this has been a really beautiful summer so far.”
Taylor closes her blog by thanking her fans once more for the success she is enjoying and passing along some words of wisdom. “I want to thank you for the happiness I’ve felt so far this summer,” she wrote. “I’ve learned to never take happiness for granted. It’s the most precious, rare feeling.”
