Meghan Markle loved making New Year’s Resolutions at the start of each year but confessed she was never able to stick to them long-term. Many people have set their goals and priorities for the new year ahead. But whether it’s to kick a bad habit or sticking to a new routine. New Year’s Resolutions can be hard to stick to. Meghan made the confession and she described some of the habits she’d like to give up as “unladylike”.
Meghan Markle spoke about making New Year’s resolutions.
She wrote: “Run a marathon. Stop biting my nails. Stop swearing. Re-learn French.” These make my New Year’s resolution list actually every single year.
“The marathon hasn’t happened. The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mighty cheeky after a couple of drinks.
“Then there’s the French – a language I studied through high school and then lost as I immersed myself in speaking Spanish with the Argentinians during my stint in Buenos Aires.
“I have put my little Rosetta Stone headset in my eager ears every year, resolving to do interviews en français, but much to my chagrin, it hasn’t stuck.
“And when it comes to the biting of the nails – well, it still happens with a turbulent flight or a stressful day. It’s unladylike. But then again, so is the swearing. Dammit.”
So in a bid not to disappoint herself that year, Meghan decided against making resolutions.
“For this new year, the only thing I aim to do is to approach life playfully. To laugh and enjoy, to keep my standards high but my level of self-acceptance higher. “My New Year’s resolution is to leave room for magic. To make my plans, and be okay if they sometimes break. To set my goals, but to be open to change.”
