Today, I collected my first ever paperback book from Amazon. I was the happiest person ever picking up the book. I excitedly opened up the package on the street and wanted to shout out to everybody, “Hey, this is my book”, I was wearing the biggest smile ever. This book’s content has spanned over a 3 year period and I honestly can’t believe I’ve written it. I read each page with new learnings and rejuvenated wisdom and I am amazed all over again.
I know some of my best writings in this book have been written at some of the toughest times in my life, when I was going through some inner challenges of lost love, tough business times and knock back after knock back. These writings, through that inner pain were inspiring me to “keep going”, to “never give up” and to do my very best to help myself achieve all that I have ever wanted. It was like I was connected to something else when writing these musings……like something else was speaking through my heart, mind and soul. I would just sit there alone in the silence of my own home and write…..it all just flowed out of me so easily and I would instantly feel an inner calmness after it.
So, in my humble opinion, this book, Clarabelle’s Musings are miracle writings, whispers of my soul to share with the world and connect in a very special way with other hearts and ultimately help you positively move forward in your own journey of life.
I often wonder where I got my writing spirit from, as my Mum and Dad don’t write but my younger sister Leanne is a fabulous writer, although I am sorry to say that she doesn’t write anymore.
I remember Leanne came home from High School one day, she was about 13 years old and she was stunned because the Head of the English Department, at the time, didn’t believe she had written the essay she wrote, she was upset that she had to convince him that she did write it all herself. He was so amazed by her talent, he took her School book from her and showed it to the other English teachers in the department. Not very inspiring for a 13 year old, when your teacher doesn’t even believe in you. I wish Leanne would write again, her story writing, really is amazing but she is so happy being a wonderful mum of 3 children with another one on the way in February next year. Leanne also home schools my nieces and nephews……her children will always be inspired, she will make sure of that.
I think we got it from my Grandfather, Eddie, who told me, at 90 years old, that when he was a child, he came first place in a UK and Ireland wide School writing competition. I felt so proud of him when he shared that with me, he hadn’t told anyone, until then, sadly he passed away at the age of 92.
So today is a momentous day and I am dedicating this paperback to my Granda Eddie and my younger sister Leanne, both inspirations to me.
Clarabelle’s Musings, this is my new bedtime reading book.
Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle
