Britain’s second female prime minister resigned Friday, 24 May 2019.

The story of Theresa May fits the popular saying, ‘no one is indispensable.’  This means that the work we do can be done by someone else, and even better.  Think of the billions of talents that exist in the world today. Thus, if we are opportune to be in a particular role, it’s not because we’re the best; it’s just our time and we’ve been found.  Just as we were found, other people with the same skill sets will be found too.  Time and chance happen to us all. 

I get the passion, and especially when we’re on the right track, it becomes really painful when people cannot see it.  But this is where we need to do more around our commitment to team playing.  We can’t force people down our path, if they don’t believe it in.  This doesn’t mean they can’t change their mind.  But what it means is they’re not convinced and we need to get them to that place.

Consequently, It is important when we’re in a role to approach our work smartly and more flexibly.  There’s no point trying to prove anything to anyone working in isolation.  We all need each other to make progress in our work, and unfortunately, no matter how great our skills are, if we lack the skill to work closely with other people, we will struggle to make progress. 

Our prime minister worked really hard and we can see the passion.  A shame that most of her ministers, and other party’s ministers could not see it.  What they saw was someone who wasn’t a team player and that changed everything. Perhaps, if she had carried them along from the outset, might have been a different end.  Who knows, but for me, lessons learned!

Anyways, a leader out another coming in soon.  Watch this space… dpriority46 \ls

What’s the world politics become? Headlines are running wild with political turmoil across the world.  From UK Brexit news to the unstable leadership in Africa.   Our political systems have become a ‘home system.’ Each leader gets in, run the system as they want; and leave the mess behind for their successors. It is a shame; a big shame indeed!

More interesting is that we are unhappy with the system, and yet still allow the system to continue.  Every time we vote for the same people or the wrong ones; we are allowing the chaos to keep on. Every time we support the outcome of a decision that’s not democratic- whether for our own selfish reasons, or due to ignorance, we are continuing to welcome more turmoil. This can be very unsettling, not just for the people we’ve allowed to run the system but for us too.  We get to the point where we begin to resist change and healthy competitions.

The question is how did we end up here?  Why are we allowing the turmoil to grow to the extent that we’ve become apathetic and are joining the club.  Every day, we live together in fear of our own actions; become unnecessarily suspicious of each other.  Indirectly rejecting political rightness and embracing our own selfish politics; politics targeting other people’s weakness, race, religion, culture, language, class and many more. Politics increasing poverty and economic decline.  Politics that’s moved us away from enjoying new experiences and the willingness to take risks that result in positive change.

It’s about time we put aside our fear of the unknown and choose for us the right political system.  If the leadership isn’t right; then we shouldn’t keep them there.  Let’s put the right people in the right position and not deny them the opportunity to create the change we want because we are too afraid to embrace new experience.  We only get to know people by showing interest in them. If we are too carried away with the fear of the unknown, we would always have to depend on the existing system to give us the change they don’t have. The result being individual decision that continue to create political turmoil.

Right, the competition for guessing the name of the royal baby has now ended and we have the winners – Prince Harry and Meghan. This is because none of our guesses came close to their choice. As you can see, they’ve chosen a name that’s not traditional and one that gives attention to their union. By the way if you don’t know what’s in the name, it simply means genuine, bold and brave – love it! Well, at least we tried and hope we all enjoyed the guessing game – better luck next time!

It was also nice to see Meghan emphasise her post-delivery baby bump. This is what a lot of people don’t get to see. Unfortunately, what many people see with celebrities are perfection – no bumps.  But in reality, every woman after giving birth gets postpartum belly. While some women get their original tummy back soon after the birth; others may take a while and in some cases may never go back to its normal size.  So, Meghan showcasing the reality of baby bump is fantastic.  We need to show more appreciation for our bodies; they were beautifully and wonderfully completed!

Great couple indeed and the addition, absolutely delightful.  Welcome to the world Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!

Yes, we are continuing to celebrate the birth of the seventh in line to the throne. As it turns out, the baby was born at the London Portland Hospital. Arrived safely and that’s all that matters to us!

As the royal baby is yet to be named, people have been suggesting different names such as: Bob, Ocean, Markle, Spencer, Kanye, Albert, Diana, Theodore, Arthur, Phillip, Matthew, Sussex; even Blaze. This is definitely going to remain a heated competition until we get a name since Prince Harry and Meghan are yet to come up with one. So, am going to be joining the competition and my name suggestion is ‘Richard’ – only because I know a really good Richard:)

Next, I hear that the royal baby will not be referred to as a ‘Prince’ because of a once upon a time decree made by King George V in 1917 to change the state of the monarchy.  This  change meant that only Prince George could be referred to as ‘Prince’ but with the Queen’s interposition, all the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton got special privilege to become ‘Princes’ and ‘Princess.’ We are not sure whether the Queen would make a last minute decree for baby Sussex…

Right, let’s move on to the throngs of people out there waiting to see the face of the royal baby. Ok, am one of them I won’t lie.  I really can’t wait to see the face of the royal baby. Does he look like his dad or mum? We won’t be able to tell until we see baby Sussex I’m afraid!

Is it just me or the media is going crazy! Its now about the baby’s citizenship – US or British.  What! Someone obviously cares.

Thanks to fans that are donating to charity after online campaign. It’s a great cause that I feel should happen more often or what do you think?

And from dad, Mr Thomas Markle:

“I am proud that my new grandson is born into the British royal family and I am sure that he will grow up to serve the crown and the people of Britain with grace, dignity, and honour.  God bless the child and I wish him health and happiness, and my congratulations to my lovely daughter Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, and God save the Queen.”

Congratulations continue to flow in for Prince Harry and Meghan.  Speculations are carrying on, Baby’s name not yet known and what about the Markles.  So, as they say, watch this space.
