Who knew that positive thinking could be so powerful? When we found out that Taylor Swift tickets were sold out back in February, I gave up all hope of seeing her. But there was something in the next few months that had me The Secret-ing things like Wanderland tickets and convenient photo shoot dates. So I thought, it wouldn’t hurt to wish for T-Swift tickets, would it?

Cut to one afternoon at work, Candy EIC Marla was waiting for me at my desk. “I have something for you,” she says. “Boys?” It’s Candy Cuties season for us after all. “Better,” she says and hands me her phone so I can read a text message. Keds was giving us one VIP ticket to Taylor’s concert, which Marla was giving to me because she had a Coron trip planned around the same time! WHAT. I mean, WHAT. Positive thinking FTW!

By some twist of fate and some more positive thinking, a few girls from the Candy team ended up going as well. I had on some red lipstick from fashion and beauty gurl Erin, and my Keds sneakers from Marla (she’s seriously the most generous boss ever), and I was ready for the feels. The girls and I were in different sections, but it didn’t matter—we were breathing the same air as Taylor!

Erin and I ended up standing right beside the platform, just a few feet away from Taylor whenever she wandered to our area. She was perfection. Her energy was infectious, her dance moves were adorably awkward, and her fashion and beauty game were A+. We couldn’t help but notice that her winged liner stayed put all night long—seriously, that girl does not sweat. And I love that she really made it a point to go around the stage, giving everyone a chance to see her up close. When she sang “All Too Well,” my favorite, she was all the way in the back of the stage, and I stood on my wobbly tippy toes to see her infamous headbanging. WORTH. IT.

Lesson learned: you really get what you give. Positivity trumps negativity, always. <13
