Diva Rambling: Choices….

CHOICES

It’s all about the choices. Hell is a choice. You don’t have to go there. Sadness is a choice you don’t have to go there. Meanness is a choice, Gossip is a choice…you get my point.

Please don’t get me wrong there are those of us who are chemically coded to fall into a state of depression, sadness, and serious dark nights of the soul. Some of us do need help.

Hopefully, when we do seek help it will teach us to make better choices about where we cast our thoughts. Thought becomes form, no matter what you think it happens. Basic physics agrees with metaphysics in this situation.

I heard a statement on some show I was flipping through the other day. It said that there are two tigers fighting inside each of us. One tiger is loving, kind, generous; the other mean, sneaky, covert. Which one wins? The one you feed!

We each have a choice which tiger we feed each day. Some days it’s hard to decide which cage to throw the food into. But we know what to do. Feed your good tiger and watch how gentle it becomes. Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Diva Musing: My Special Lights…

My Special Lights

The Universe has seen to it, that in my current position, I am blessed to meet so many young souls full of light and gifts to give to our world. It has been like stumbling into a diamond mine of glistening souls.

I learn something new from them every day. And like any grandmother, I want to do whatever I can to help them through the quagmire of life‘s swampland’s. I know I don’t get to vote, only they can do that. But I wish I could build good bridges for them to cross when they’re tired and struggling.


I am sure so many of you have been blessed to know bright and shining souls like these. You have put been put in their space and time to serve just that purpose. To help them build the bridges that will get them through the quagmires of life. Don’t ignore that blessing. Honor it, you’ve been put there for a reason.

Namaste The Queen Cronista

Diva Rambling: Soldier On….

I have so many friends suffering from some form of sadness or grief right now that I thought I’d ramble on the topic a little.  Remember your loved one are here for you always.

Soldier On….

Have any of you ever been so depressed that everything in life seemed to have taken a turn for the worst? Maybe you were grieving for a loved one, you had an injury that ruined certain opportunities, maybe school just sucked. No one understood so everyone seemed to turn away. Being socially ostracized by friends and family can be very soul damaging.

Did you even feel like you’d given up on everything that interested you? Did gardening, horseback riding, reading, painting, whatever you use to use to give you a positive charge, seemed to evaporate from your life? Each day became an endless cycle of repetitiveness…Like the movie “Groundhog Day”. You found that you had to stay out of public scrutiny, because you found yourself crying uncontrollably all the time.

You soldiered on, and no one knew that you were in and endless numbness and mind altering state. No matter how much you smiled on the outside your soul/spirit was empty and numb. Did you look in the mirror and see the sparkle was gone in your eyes? Some people, knew something was up but didn’t know how to deal with you.

Finally after a long year or years, you finally realized that it was all up to you? “The surest way to prevent positive change is to do nothing.” TQTC. Then, as most of us finally realize… Form follows thought…we have to quit wallowing in our own self-pity. I love the expression…”fake it until you make it… it works. We must all make a concerted effort to improve our own happiness.

I know for me when I’m in a “dark night of the soul” it is a slow process to wade back through the quagmire into the light. However, when I take charge it always happens, I find my bliss again. It starts reflecting everywhere even in the sparkling eyes in the mirror. On a positive fast forward we find time to listen to music again. We may even start dancing, gardening or getting back to nature. I find everything eventually falls back to place.

We have to keep soldiering on each day, to keep from falling back into the depths of another “dark night of the soul.” I have several friends that are therapists. They tell me, no matter how we feel, having a good therapist…someone neutral to confide in… is a good thing. I found this good advice personally. For all of you out there who are struggling with depression, heartache and grief, it’s going to be fine…

I don’t say this lightly, just hang in there! And if you need help please talk with someone. I’m here if you need me. I spend many a night talking friends and family off the metaphorical cliff. Just be practiced enough not to take on others baggage if you choose to do this.

It is all a matter of reminding yourself that you are to do it. Just keep getting out and make efforts towards getting out. Remember that you are a star, You radiate your own light and energy! And positive vibes attract positive energy.

You know what, my divas, the happy triggers, the quiet, safe places that make you calm. Just hang in there! The World is awesome and so are each of you.

Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Diva Ranting: I Mean What I Said…

Mean What You Said

Here in the South we use words like sweetheart, angel, precious, Sweetie, dear, as terms of endearment. Yet there are those outside our Southern culture who are insulted by this show of human affection.

If it’s someone that I know or I don’t know… well, it’s still a term of endearment and when it comes out of my mouth I mean it. I mean it as a term in endearment, I mean it as a term that you are someone special to me, I mean it as I noticed and acknowledged you. I won’t change that part of my upbringing for anyone. You don’t have to accept our terms of endearment, just as we don’t accept your gift of being incensed over everything, every body does, all the time.

Me and my Southern Divas will keep doing what we’re doing with love and good intention, because our Daddy’s and Mamas raised us right. You keep doing what your doing because you want to be that way. Me and my posse will keep giving the love.

Disclaimer: If you hear a Southern Woman say…”Bless your little heart!” as a punctuation to a disagreement…run for the hills. She is ready to rip out your heart and bake it in a pie!
