Only 21 years of age, Taylor Swift has seen much more to life than most of us can ever imagine. And with that said, she has some advice for teens out there.

The singer, who rocked the Teen Choice Awards and snagged 6 awards, said that as a teenager, she received some advice that she has kept to heart, “live your life like you’re 80 looking back on your teenage years.

What did she mean by this? She gave an example. “You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go to breakfast? As a teenager you’re like no, I want to sleep. As an 80 year old looking back, you have that breakfast with your dad. It’s just little things like that that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making the choices you won’t regret later.”

She continued, “When I was a teenager I felt like we were always being stereotyped as being really intense and dramatic and passionate and hopelessly romantic and excitable, and now in retrospect I think I need to let you know that I think all of those things are amazing. I hope you never lose those things.”

Really some sage advice there, Taylor. You know, we tend to forget the little things that matter when we’re younger and when we’re older, we reflect back and wonder aloud just how stupid and immature we were. But it’s life!

This is great advice. I can’t believe Taylor Swift is already 21. As kids, it feels like we can live forever but we can’t. We must treasure everything while it’s still here. smile

Great advice! Which now makes me think that maybe I will have that breakfast with my parents tomorrow. :]

Good advice, Taylor!
