Hear ye! Hear ye! After many months of bouncing from one subject to another, I have decided to focus my writing on one topic. What’s that topic?
Queen Alisha’s Guide to Life.
Even the title of my blog is changing to reflect this change. I’m becoming the Prince of blogging. Well, maybe not that extreme, but my blog will now be titled, “Queen Alisha’s Guide to Life….The blog formerly known as Groovy Kind of Life.”
I’ll still write about some of the same old things like music (I can’t ignore something that’s such a big part of who I am), South Louisiana, and the random topic that strikes my fancy. But, my main focus will be on my New Year’s Resolution to treat myself and have other’s treat me like a Queen.
Not a doormat.
Not a diva.
Not a bitch.
What is a Queen? I found this definition of a Queen on a website this morning and I thought it pretty much fits the definition of what I am trying to achieve.
The Queen is the part of us that attempts to establish lawful order and moral virtue by focusing on relationships and by nurturing, encouraging, and protecting the individuality and authority of others. Our Queen addresses social problems and issues with warm, loving, merciful, and forgiving feelings toward otherness. The primary characteristics of the Queen are (1) benevolent feeling, or caring, and (2) shared authority. http://www.souljourney.net/archetypestudies/queen.html
Basically, it’s the mature version of Tart, the alter ego I clung to during my misspent youth. Not quite so selfish, not quite so reckless.
I’m a little older and a little wiser.
Don’t get me wrong. There’s still a lot of Tart left in me. I still love good drinks, nights out on the town, and throwing caution to the wind every now and then. That part of me will always be there. But eventually, we all have to grow up and become who we are meant to be.
Besides, Tart still wants to travel and have a house that befits her new Queen status. Tart can’t have that if she’s throwing her money away on drinks and nights out on the town.
And a good Queen knows how to prioritize.
So, for the most part, my blogs will be about my year of living like a Queen. And what the hell, if I have a good time with it, I’ll continue after the year is over.
It IS my blog. And I AM the Queen, after all.
For now, I’m off to cook some dinner and feed my royal subjects and get ready for the first Mardi Gras parade in our town.
Maybe I can find a tiara before the parade……..
Here’s to living the Queen life, and Carnival time in South Louisiana.
