Former USA first lady Michelle Obama is one of the smartest women we have in the world. Given the kind of power she had when she was the wife of the President of one of the most powerful states, she knew exactly how to use that power in helping people especially fellow women.
Meghan Markle, on the other hand, got married to the price of England Prince Harry just a few months ago. Michelle is a long-term friend of the Prince and she took the liberty to give some words of wisdom to Meghan.
With that kind of power, there is a sort of pressure that comes with it. Which means regardless of Meghan being there for a few months she is already feeling obligated to start her own projects.
Michelle went on to tell her that she should first focus on her family and that she should not start huge projects yet,
“Like me, Meghan probably never dreamt that she’d have a life like this, and the pressure you feel – from yourself and from others – can sometimes feel like a lot,” she told Good Housekeeping magazine.
“So my biggest pieces of advice would be to take some time and don’t be in a hurry to do anything. I spent the first few months in the White House mainly worrying about my daughters, making sure they were off to a good start at school and making new friends before I launched into any more ambitious work.
“I think it’s okay – it’s good, even – to do that…. What I’d say is that there’s so much opportunity to do good with a platform like that – and I think Meghan can maximise her impact for others, as well her own happiness if she’s doing something that resonates with her personally.”
“Thankfully I get more (and more regular) sleep these days,” she said.
“But it probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone that sometimes it was a real challenge to keep up with the pace.”
