Diva Musing: Perspective….

Diva Rambling: Holiday Crazy….

As the madness of the holidays sets in I found this note to gently remind us to stay grounded in all the holiday insanity.  I can’t find my note on who wrote this but I thank them for this gentle reminder…Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Crazy People

If you think people are crazy, are you one of them? If you think you are not one of them, someone else might think that you are crazy!

In this world there is all types of craziness. If an alien comes to this planet and goes to a soccer stadium, he would find it to be an absolutely crazy place! He will not be able to understand why the 11 players are chasing one ball and are trying to get the ball into the net, and why are there 11 others on the other side stopping them, that too for one little ball. He would say, ‘Why are they all fighting over a ball?’

An alien would say, ‘Let me give 22 balls to 22 players. Let them kick their balls and keep them in the net!’

If their goal is to put the ball in the net, he would say, ‘Okay, let us all go and keep it there.’ He will fail to understand why people are kicking the ball and falling over each other and 50,000 people around are clapping and crying and howling!

It sounds absolutely crazy!

Like that there are many such crazy things in the world. I used to find English language very crazy. You write, ‘know’ and pronounce it as ‘no’. I would say, ‘know!’ (pronouncing it with the k sound) You should speak the way you write and read. You write ‘knowledge’ and put a ‘k’, I would say, ‘knowledge’ (pronouncing with the k sound). Everyone found it absolutely crazy.

My mother tongue is such that the way we write is the same as what we speak. In English, several letters become silent and you don’t know which is silent and which is not silent. It was so difficult. I had to write in English and then write in Kannada below that. Once my class teacher looked at my notebook and asked me, ‘What are you writing? It is wrong’.

There is no match between speaking and writing. You say something and you write something else.

Like that there are different crazes in the world. Everything is a craze and people are crazy for different things. Some are crazy about games, some for politics, some for money.

Do you know what happened in China? On New Years, in Shanghai, somebody threw fake currency from the top of a tower and 35 people died in a stampede. Is this not crazy,? People going to get free money falling from some building onto the street? There is no limit for being crazy. At least here it is good crazy! Some people are crazy about mediation and some are crazy about singing. It is okay! ‘Accept people as they are’. Sometimes I wonder, ‘Why did I put this point! I have been trapped by it!’ I have never said anything in my life which I have not practiced, so since I have said this, I have to practice it and I have been practicing, carrying on and accepting all sorts of craziness. I tell you, there is hope! I am still happy!

Diva Ranting: But I Meant To….

…“I truly meant to behave but there were just too many other great options.” T-Shirt Philosophy

Welcome to my world. Someone once sent me a book “When You Can Walk On Water Take The Boat.”

They fell into my friends philosophy that I am one of the most predictably unpredictable people he had ever met. Choosing you own “ignore the box” options does not mean you really are misbehaving…(only to little uncreative minds) maybe. But who give a hoot. God gave us each incredible gifts many never use because they are afraid of being labeled by the world of Judgey Smurfs, as different. Really??? Gifts you have and do not share are sad to a world that needs you. No one is anything like you. You were specifically programmed by the Universe to be YOU!!! Not some coloring book numb nuts. Don’t waste your precious gifts. My daughter is a comic and I tell her all the time her gift to the world is to make people laugh. What a gift! What is your gift? Share it with our world today. We love you just the way you are. Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Diva Ranting: That little thing….

You know that little thing inside your head that keeps you from saying things you shouldn’t? Yeah, I don’t have one of those. “ T-Shirt Philosophy
I think you know by now if you’ve been around the Crones for any length of time we tend to tell it and not need to sell it. Getting older and wiser is very freeing. I never want to say anything to anyone that intentionally insult or hurts them. However, bullies, biatches, parvenus, just all around mean spirited people….you do not want to take us on. We will knit your britches to your ass and still have time to cook dinner. Standing ground is not so fearful once you’ve practiced it a bit. The “better thans” noted above are not use to bravery. Once you stand ground they are not as interested in taking you down. They’ll move on to some other innocent they can mow down with impunity. Let them know you are not one of them. Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Diva Musing: In My Defense….

In my Defense I was left unsupervised.”

This one made me laugh. Everyone who has ever known me knows this is true. I’m a firm believer in being the surprise “CRAZY “in someone’s day. A brilliant lawyer once told me I was the most predictably unpredictable persons he had ever known. I have always considered this one of the greatest compliments I have ever received. It feels very good to be the “unpredictable” in someones life… if it is in a good way. Try it you might like it. Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Diva Ranting: Not out of your way….

Today’s T Shirt Quote:

People think I go out of my way to piss them off. Trust me it’s not out of my way at all.”

One of my fondest beliefs is that a Good Queen is full of wit, sarcasm, and respectful irreverence to all thing NOT good for the soul. Narcissist being the main one. If you must be around one, turn on the Queenly charm of Respectful Irreverence and sarcasm, then leave them scratching their heads. Enough said. Namaste, The Queen Cronista

Diva Rambling: More T-Shirt Wisdom…

The best thing about the good old days was that I wasn’t good and I wasn’t old!”

The good old days were great; no denying. However, I tell the young one around me that I think it gets better every decade. We have a chance to make every day a good old day in our personal history. Never give that up. Make today one of the best good old days ever…..AND tomorrow too.

Namaste, The Queen Cronista
