“Something borrowed, something new and something blue”

This rhyme refers to the things a bride is supposed to wear on her wedding day to have a successful marriage.  It dates back to at least 19th century Lancastershire. It refers to few things a bride should wear on her wedding day. It is believed that a bride who wears those five things has the ingredients for a successful marriage in the years that follow.

Meghan had this in mind when she chose everything she wore on her Royal Wedding day.

To the details on Princess Meghan’s Wedding dress “Her something new”

Meghan’s Wedding dress was a head-turning beauty, so perfect for a royal bride. The gown was designed by Clare Waight Keller, an acclaimed British designer. The dress featured a beteau neckline and three quater sleeves; it was created out of a “double bonded silk cady” fabric. The dress had a beautiful 5 meter long veil which was created from silk tulle with a trim of hand embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza which represented the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.

The wisdom of ‘the other’

Success is seldom created in a vacuum, we are inspired and challenged by what we see around us. We are challenged to move when we have seen others move, and when we have seen that its possible to move. This makes us intentional about the people we surround ourselves with, who are they, what is it they carry, why should they be in our lives. How can we be changed and challenged when with them, do they motivate us to be better humans, or they are there is echo our fears & insecurities.

Here is some encouragement from one awesome Oprah Winfrey. She is one to keep as a source for encouragement, making you believe anything is possible. As she says, “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for”.

It’s not that I’ve always known who I would be. It was just very clear to me from an early age who I wouldn’t be.

The opportunities for a girl born black in Mississippi in 1954 were limited. You could teach in a segregated school. Or be a maid. A cook. A dishwasher. A servant. I never thought that would be the life for me.

I vividly remember standing on my grandmother’s small screened-in back porch, churning butter while she boiled clothes in a big black cast-iron pot in the yard. As she pulled the steaming clothes from the pot to hang on the line to dry, she called to me, “Oprah Gail, you better watch me now, ’cause one day you gon’ have to know how to do this for yourself.”

I did what she told me. I watched carefully as she pulled the clothespins from her apron, held them two at a time between her lips, and placed one and then the other on opposite ends of the sheets and towels and shirts and dresses she hung on the line.

A still, small voice inside me, really more a feeling than a voice, said, “This will not be your life. Your life will be more than hanging clothes on a line.”

The certainty of that divine assurance got me through many a difficult moment during my growing years.

I wanted to be a teacher. And to be known for inspiring my students to be more than they thought they could be. I never imagined it would be on TV.

I believe there’s a calling for all of us. I know that every human being has value and purpose. The real work of our lives is to become aware. And awakened. To answer the call.
