From pawns to Queens
How many times have you heard someone say that “life is like chess” Or maybe “you’re a checker player and i play chess” ?
Well, there is a reason for that. Many people who participate in the game of chess pretty much have developed some sort of strategy from playing the game and have somehow incorporated it into their daily lives. For the purposes of this blog though, I am going to use the analogy of pawns to make comparisons between the pawn and the young woman and basically the means in which she becomes or can become a Queen. It can be used in the same sense for young males, though we focus on the woman for she is who is responsible for the upbringing of the coming generations.
Life is like a game of chess and we are all pretty much pawns on the board. We are all struggling, being pushed, driven, or directed in a sense, towards the other side, where we can expect our rewards. Needless to say, the odds for a pawn to make it to the other side is surprisingly low, especially under the guidance of the inexperienced. Also, most pawns are used as sacrificial pieces, or more for defensive purposes. Basically, the most likely to be underestimated. This would work out to be a plus, for the experienced.
The game of chess requires strategy, planning your moves in advanced, the ability to read the dangers and of course, patience as does the life we live, or the one we would like to live. The Queen, being one of the most important pieces in the game, is very well one of the most powerful. Which brings me to the point of this post and I hope that I haven’t confused any one with the use of the analogy or off the wall comparison here.
From pawns to Queens: the privileged Pawn
The privileged pawns are the one or the ones that start off their journey with more than the normal dose of self determination or they are guided by someone who has experience in this area. For this blog we will refer to this person as the King ( although this person could be make or female. ) The privileged pawn will be placed on a dedicated path, or be put into a program, path, or regimen that ensures that they will be what is intended through its own dedication or the will of the King.
