Meghan Markle has taught us many lessons over the years, but her New Year’s Resolution message could be some of the cutest.
In an unarchived 2016 post from her former lifestyle blog, The Tig, the Duchess of Sussex spoke about the many resolutions that make her list each year.
‘Run a marathon. Stop biting my nails. Stop swearing. Learn French again, “she wrote in the message.
“The marathon did not take place. Swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling very cheeky after a few drinks. Then there is French – a language I studied in high school and then lost while immersing myself in Spanish with Argentines during my stay in Buenos Aires, ”she continued.
As for the nail bite, Markle revealed that it “always happens with a turbulent flight or a stressful day.” It’s anti-feminine. But again, the curse is too. Shit.’
In the post, the mother-of-two questioned the value of New Year’s resolutions, explaining that she often finds herself “wallowing in disappointment” when she doesn’t meet her goals.
“This year, I decide not to have a resolution,” she wrote, noting that while it takes a few more years to learn French, “that’s cool”.
“My nails will be fine, and if I toss a four letter word once in a blue moon, well, frankly I think that adds character,” she continued.
Instead, for 2016, Markle aimed to “approach life in a playful way.” “Laugh and enjoy, keep my standards high but my level of self-acceptance higher.”
Recalling a memory where she told her friend and former Suits co-star Gina Torres about her New Years plans, the Duchess noted, “She stopped me.” Meg, I’m just going to say one thing. Make sure you leave room for the magic ”.
As a result, Markle added that his resolution for the year was to “make room for magic.”
“To make my plans and be okay if they break sometimes. Set my goals, but be open to change. To let the magic know that there is an open door policy with me in 2016 and that it is always welcome to join in the fun, ”she added.
Markle closed her blog in April 2017 as her relationship with the Duke of Sussex escalated.
The message was written almost a year before she and Prince Harry announced their engagement to the world. The couple married a year later on May 19, 2018 and have since welcomed two children: Archie, two, and Lilibet, five months.
This holiday season, the family of four will likely stay at their home in Montecito, Calif., Which marks the quartet’s second Christmas away from Prince Harry’s immediate family in the UK.
It has been widely reported that the Queen is planning to throw a Royal Family Christmas on December 25 in Sandringham after a few weeks of poor health. This Christmas will be her first without her husband, Prince Philip, who passed away in April.
