It's 2018, and you know what that means? No more 2017! Whew! We made it. It was a little touch-and-go there for awhile, but here we are in a brand new year where almost no bad things have happened yet. Now is the perfect time to make resolutions, so the 2018 version of you is the best one yet. When making our resolutions, we like to people whom we admire for inspiration. This year, we're looking at Meghan Markle. She seems to have things figured out, what with being engaged to a prince and all. We did a little Internet sleuthing and managed to find some of her New Year's Resolutions — and we have to say we're pretty darn inspired!
What are your goals for 2018?
Maybe you want to work out more often.
Maybe you’re trying to take up a new hobby like baking or knitting.
Maybe you just want to be happier in general.
Or maybe you just want to be like Meghan Markle.
And honestly, we get it. She’s in a pretty enviable position these days. Sure, she had to give some things up to get to where she is today, but it seems like those sacrifices were worth it.
If you do want to be like Meghan Markle, then we have good news.
We found her New Year’s Resolutions.
Now, fair warning: These are her resolutions from 2016, but they are just as applicable today.
Long before Markle was Prince Harry’s betrothed, she started a lifestyle blog known as The Tig. The blog is now defunct, but you can still access the archives.
It was on New Year’s Day of 2016 that she wrote about her resolutions. In fact, she says, these are the same resolutions that she’s had every year. They may seem pretty standard at first, but she completely flips the script and surprises us at the end.
The first one? Run a marathon.
This is something that’s likely on many people’s goals for the new year. Being able to run 26.2 miles (or really any number of miles) is super impressive. Exercise is one of those things that people say is important. Plus it makes you feel great, so we get it.
Resolution No. 2? Stop biting your nails.
Yep, yep. That all makes sense.
(We’re guessing now that Markle is wearing that incredible engagement ring, she probably wants to keep her nails looking extra lovely. There are way more close-up photos of her hands now than ever before!)
But this next resolution involves something that the Queen would probably find quite unbecoming of a member of the royal family.
