Meghan Markle's surprising New Year's Resolution

The future royal used to write her resolutions on her lifestyle blog The Tig, but her last resolution was much different.

Meghan Markle wrote in her former lifestyle blog The Tig that every year she made the same resolutions: run a marathon, stop biting her nails, stop swearing, and re-learn French. She continues to say she never accomplishes any of these things and instead of setting herself up for disappointment she decided to have no resolution.

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 Years 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.

She said her resolution was to keep her standards high and her level of self-acceptance higher and leave room for magic, which is exactly what she did because within a couple of months she met Prince Harry, fell in love, and is now engaged. Looks like her no-resolution was a good way to start her year.
