If your life were a rubber band, would you be flaccid or a stretched one?
The secret is believing in yourself that you can do it. No human is limited and it’s always possible to break a barrier.
What if everything you are experiencing today is below your average potential? Have you ever tasted limit of what is possible? Don’t you think God expect more of you than what He gave you?
What if the goal of life is to become everything that is possible given what you have now? What if the goal of life is to become the best, highest, most loving versions of yourself? What if you are expected to take what you have and double it? What does that look like in each of your individual context? Where do you limit yourself ?

“the biggest challenge is becoming all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.”
You are not maximizing your existence because you lack self belief. You are probably too lazy to test your limit. You will be surprised to know that you have more capacity to survive than you believe. God is just asking you to take everything He gave you and push to the next level.
So, many of my fellow Meghan Markle supporters and Sussexsquad members have been trying to understand why so many Meghan Markle trolls have turned out to be middle-aged white women from the U.S.
Let me break down my thoughts as why these women are so upset…..
The first thing most Meghan Markle supporters say is “They’re American!! Why do they even care who a British Prince marries?!!” To understand this, you need to realize that middle-aged white Americans were the first generation to be raised on Disney Princesses…
These women as children watched Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty all fall in love with, and be saved by handsome princes. As they grew up, many subconsciously expected their own lives to follow this narrative, at least in respect to finding Mr. Right.. .
Additionally, right around the time that many of these women were coming of age, Prince Charles and Princess Diana were getting married. Many of these American women saw this fairy tale wedding and marriage as confirmation that childhood dreams could become a reality.
It’s also important to understand that at this time, Ronald Reagan had recently been elected on the promise of restoring conservative values and American greatness. The U.S. had just come out of a brutal civil rights era, a failed Vietnam War, and the Iran hostage crisis…
So, Charles and Diana’s wedding did two major things for white American women at the time: 1. It showed an old, powerful, and white world power still holding prestige and tradition. 2. Made the childhood dream of marrying a prince and living happily ever after appear real…
These women got married and had children around the same time that Diana did. Their lives seemed to parallel. They saw a bit of themselves in Diana as their own marriages failed and they struggled to discern fantasy from real life issues and problems…
After Diana tragically died, many felt a strong connection to William and Harry. They placed on the boys the same dreams they had for their own children. They aspired again for the dream. If they and Diana couldn’t have it, maybe the boys could…
And the dream, for them, is the white Disney princess. Kate easily delivered this ideal in 2011, as was seen with this very popular image that circulated all over the internet after William and Kate’s marriage….
These women expected for Harry to one day do the same. But, alas, he didn’t. Instead, he fell in love with, and married a mixed-race American divorcee. Their dreams had been shattered…..
1. Because Meghan had been divorced. Disney princesses don’t get divorced! They are supposed to marry their first love and live happily ever after! 2. Because she is mixed-race…and this one is the big one… but probably not because of what you think……
Yes, some of these women are overtly racist. They just flat out don’t like people of colour, but I think the biggest reason that Meghan’s race is a such problem for these women is because it drags up racial sludge that permeates all of American society….
These women want “the dream” and divorce and blackness are a reality. Half of all marriages end in divorce. America has a long and sordid history of racial inequality and abuse. Meghan forces them to look at ugly truths in their own lives, while Kate still gives them the fantasy.
And Lord, these women are attached to the dream. They want the boys to have the perfect lives, wives, and children. William and Kate have been excellent at giving them exactly what they want. Until the last couple of weeks, they’ve seemed absolutely flawless in the press…
However, we’ve seen only realness with Meghan. From her awful half-sister, to her divorce, to her struggling as an actress, to her father selling pictures to the tabloids…we have only seen the real, and that infuriates these middle-aged white American women sold on “the dream”.
But their dream is their dream. They are entitled to it. To the rest of us, Meghan is an inspiration precisely because she is so very real. She is a beautiful new dream rooted in something very few dreams are….reality. ❤
And it’s important to remember that Not all white American women of age hate Meghan. Many, many love and adore her. I’m just trying to explain why so many older, white American women are so incredibly anti Meghan…
You are not a victim. You’re a victor. You wouldn’t have opposition if there were not something amazing in your future. Keep a smile on your face. Keep a spring in your step. Stay positive. Stay hopeful. God is still on the throne.
You have to take the hand that you have been dealt and make the most of it.
Nothing that has happened to you has stopped your destiny. That person that did you wrong,walked away? It may have been painful but they did not ruin your life. They don’t have that much power. If they could stop God’s plan they would be bigger than God.
Don’t let one bad break, one injustice,one difficult season cause you to be sour or have a chip on your shoulder. As long as you accept you are a victim you are going to be stuck.
Don’t use your unfair situation as an excuse to feel sorry for yourself,to give up on life,to not Pursue on your dreams.
You are the generation that’s going to set a new standards. You are the one that is going to see this shift in your thinking. You are not a slave, victim, limited and at a disadvantage.
No more forever victim.
Do your part and put on those new clothes so to speak. See yourself differently. Have a new perspective. You are not a victim of your past or a victim of what didn’t work out. Instead, you are a Victor.
Some difficult situations are steps on the way to your destiny. That difficult situation is leading you to a new level. You won’t understand it now but that is a necessary step to get you to the throne. You won’t understand everything that happens along the way,there will be plenty of opportunities to be a victim,those are the test.
Will you keep the right attitude when it’s not fair,you feel like being discouraged,why did this happen, don’t ply that role,refuse to be a victim. It may have meant to be for your harm but at some point God is going to turn it into your advantage. It’s going to catapult you where you cannot go on your own.
