“Life is an equal-opportunity distributor. That means we all get a shot to do something great. But people who are afraid to fail are people who fail to act. And opportunity without action will leave you empty handed in the end. So do what you can with what you were given and don’t be afraid to fail.”
Yesterday, much of the world was tuned into the televised and highly publicized wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Today, we're looking to the days that will follow and are excited to see what Meghan, the DUCHESS OF SUSSEX, a proud feminist and biracial American, does with this new platform, how she pushes back against the problematic old traditions within the monarchy, and the ways she will inspire a new generation of girls and women who will grow up seeing a woman of color become a princess in an otherwise exclusively white monarchy. .
Interested in learning more about the new duchess and why her addition into the British monarchy is pretty monumental, check out the Vox and Page Six articles up now on our Link Tree.
Here's a couple snippets for your reading pleasure: .
Vox: "Growing up in the late ’80s as a biracial girl, I never had a mixed-race princess whose image I could sport on my backpack or my lunchbox. There was little to no representation of my identity — almost no characters in movies or television shows, no musicians or celebrities who identified as mixed-race. For today’s biracial youth, Meghan Markle, the actress who is marrying into the British royal family — and who has defined herself publicly as 'a strong, confident mixed-race woman' — represents the biracial role model I didn’t have growing up."
Page Six: "Markle has always been comfortable navigating conflicting identities. In fact, her circumstances have required it. She once described growing up biracial as 'a blurred line that is equal parts staggering and illuminating.' Her parents encouraged her to be proud of her heritage: Thomas blended two sets of Barbie families as a Christmas present for his daughter. After she was stymied by a school census whose choices didn’t reflect her mixed-race makeup, Thomas told the then-seventh-grader to 'draw your own box,' despite her teacher’s urging to check 'Caucasian' 'because that’s how you look, Meghan,' the actress recounted in Elle." .
IT’S MONDAY 😫 or IT’S MONDAY 🤗 ?! I’d much rather be the latter. Vibes are contagious! The Law of Attraction says “whatever you focus on, think about, read about, and talk about intensely, you’re going to attract more of into your life.” Happy Monday! Wake up and tell yourself you are going to have the BEST day and if you don’t, say it again tomorrow and the next day!
