If you’re like me (and the millions of other fan-girls out there) you’ve been singing Taylor Swift’s new song “Shake it Off” constantly for the last few weeks. You can’t get away from it; it’s on the radio every other song (highest debut EVER for adult pop songs, while tying for best pop song start.)

And even if you haven’t heard it, you’ve surely seen the seemingly endless stream of press the song has gotten since it debuted, both good and bad.

While Taylor Swift has previously been known for writing songs about her famous breakups and boys who broke her heart, here she is doing exactly what the song’s title suggests: shedding light on just who she really is, what she stands for and what she wants to be known for as a musician.

I go on too many dates
But I can’t make them stay
At least that’s what people say
That’s what people say
But I keep cruising
Can’t stop, won’t stop moving
It’s like I got this music
In my mind, saying it’s gonna be alright

Alright, alright… maybe those aren’t the most well-penned, thought provoking lyrics ever written, but can’t we all learn something from this catchy song? We CAN shake it off. We can define who we want to be and what we want to be known for. And if we feel like we have too many people who have already segmented us a certain way, remember, we don’t have the MILLIONS on people following and labeling us like Taylor Swift does.

So this September, let’s shake it off. Let’s do something out of our comfort zone and redefine who we want to be, personally and professionally. Maybe it’s starting that exercise regimen you’ve been putting off for months. Maybe it’s bringing some new ideas to a client. Or maybe you just need a soothing mantra to cling to when things don’t go quite your way… Browns season starts soon, after all.

(Just kidding, Browns. We at AKHIA are very, very excited for football season.)

I never miss a beat
I’m lightning on my feet
And that’s what they don’t see (That’s what they don’t see)
I’m dancing on my own
I make the moves as I go
And that’s what they don’t know (That’s what they don’t know)
But I keep cruising
Can’t stop, won’t stop grooving
It’s like I got this music
In my mind, saying it’s gonna be alright.

Come on, that “lightning on my feet” line is totally about Johnny Football.
