Time to Help

Add some goodness to each day.

What if today you decided to help someone?

It might be something as simple as giving some food or money to a homeless person or phoning a friend or family member who lives on their own.

Help and expect nothing back, just help to HELP.

You might see an older person struggling with their shopping bags, so maybe you could help them across the road.

You might decide to share some positive words on one of your social media platforms – those empowering words, might just help out a friend in need.

If you have more time to help, why not do some volunteering for a day – there are many organisations out there who would love your help.

Help where you can and with your wonderful smile.

A little help can go a long long way, so let’s help one another and add some goodness to each day.

Thank you for being here, it’s a real joy to have your presence.

Poetry Corner #8

Self-belief can take you places

Good day to you and happy Thursday – it’s Poetry Corner day today, so a very warm welcome to you.

Explore the wisdom in your mind.

Believe

A gasp for air,
thirsty for life,
battling the storms,
of trouble and strife.

A messy mind,
a broken heart,
stuck in the moment,
where do you start?

Believe in you,
the strength within,
your beautiful heart,
desire to win.

For self-belief,
can you take you places,
flying high,
amongst smiling faces.

You can do it,
know this is true,
have faith in yourself,
and your dreams too.

Your inner wisdom,
will show you the way,
a new you is born,
believe in you today.

Grow Into Tomorrow

Get Up and Get Going!

Stagnation can be so very painful. Lack of growth and stimulation can make a person feel ‘dead’. Focus on staying alive and true to yourself. Be the person today, you want to become in the future. Grow into tomorrow by developing as much as you can today.

As soon as you stop learning and making a meaningful contribution in life, you don’t just STOP, you actually go backwards, because everyone else is moving forward.

Are you happy being at the back of the line?

What will entice you to move on up the line?

What greatness awaits you at the front?

What will you do TODAY in order to make that positive change in your life?

The world waits for no one and no one waits for you. You’ve got to get UP yourself and GET GOING.

This one is for YOU – the back of the line doesn’t suit you.

It’s Your Life – GO GET IT!

I Love It!

Timing can be EVERYTHING!

I just love writing in this blog and I will never tire of it.

When I write, I write for you and for me. Often, I am talking to myself when I write a post. It usually starts off with something that’s going on in my life – good or bad and then this conjures up some words of wisdom and/or a real effort to turn around negative thinking, in order to brighten up my spirits or to cheer up someone else who needs to read these words.

You see, timing can be EVERYTHING – empowering, positive words and strategies might just pop into someone’s life, just when they need it. They might be pondering over a difficult decision or life changing matter and the blog post helps in some sort of way.

The forever aim of what I write IS to help, motivate, encourage, inspire, empower, teach, develop and share as much positive influence, inner wisdom and useful knowledge as possible.

I write about these things because that is who I am as a person and that comes most natural to me. I have so much energy and passion for this stuff – it takes my breath away!

So, no matter the barriers, difficulties and challenges that we all face in life – you can always ‘camp out’ in this Clarabelle Blog and hopefully find something that will help you move forward in life.

It’s Your Life – GO GET IT!

Dig Deep

Happy digging my friend!

There’s only one way forward when you’re reaching for your dreams and that’s to keep digging deep, day in and day out, in order to achieve what you want.

This digging process can seem real tiring at times, especially if progress is slow but you must keep going until you get there.

“There” might be just around the corner or very faraway but if you are really passionate about your goal in hand, the distance, near or far, shouldn’t put you off.

Remember why you started and remember the pain of staying stagnant or indeed, going backwards – that very thought absolutely terrifies me and always seems to help me regain any lost focus.

Stumbling blocks along the way can seem to spoil the journey a little bit but always be mindful of the purpose behind what you’re doing and the end result which will inevitably be yours.

You’ve got to believe that you will achieve this dream or goal, for without this self-belief, you could be building on shaky ground.

Eliminate all failure by never giving up on what you truly desire and find ways to stay energised and focussed on the goal in hand.

The more progress you make, the more confident you will become and the closer you will move towards your dream.

Stay disciplined, determined and committed to the end outcome – hold that vision so strong in your mind and never let it go.

The greatest reward will come from your everyday efforts being channeled in the right direction.

Don’t sway on the heavy days, stay light on your feet and put your mind and body into ‘drive’ mode.

Laser focus, tunnel vision or whatever you want to call it – just make sure you stay on track and see how your life positively changes before you.

Happy digging my friend!

It’s Your Life – GO GET IT!

Why You Looking at me?

aim to be more self-confident

I was heading out for my usual outdoor run one day and my friend said to me, “It doesn’t bother you running outside?” I was like, “Why?”. She then explained to me, that she wouldn’t run outside because she would think everyone was looking at her. I shared with her, that gladly that thought didn’t ever come into my mind and even if it did, I would probably think, “Good, maybe I’ll inspire someone to run too!

Do you see the EMPOWERMENT or DISEMPOWERMENT your mind can have over you?

I want you to THINK about your THINKING and if it serves you well or not.

Think POWERFUL thoughts that will build you up, not break you down.

Aim to be more SELF-CONFIDENT and less SELF-CONSCIOUS, it will help you to forge forward in life.

And lastly, if you want to run outside but are maybe thinking, “What if everyone is looking at me?” Change that thinking to, “WHAT IF I INSPIRE SOMEONE TO RUN TOO?”

The selfie photo below, is of me recently, just back from my evening run in Hyde Park, London.

Clarabelle loves to run!

I hope I have inspired you to run too!

Have a GREAT one, wonderful you.

I Remember When. . .

Everyone in the community knew each other and looked out for each other.

MY SWEET SWEET MEMORIES FROM THE LATE 70S & EARLY 80S

You could leave your house door open during the night;

You could go for an early sole run in the park with no fear;

You would chat outside to your next door neighbour for hours;

No one carried a mobile phone and everyone coped fine;

Children played in large groups outside after school;

Local playgrounds were filled with children, without the need for parents being there;

Children used their imagination and played ‘made up’ games with their friends;

You only had one true best friend but it was called a ‘best pal’;

We didn’t have a landline at home and no one really cared;

All family dinners were home made;

A holiday was going on family day trips to the closest seaside location;

There was only three TV channels and we felt spoiled for choice;

If you could afford a taxi, you were rich;

If you missed the bus, you had to wait another hour on the next one;

Those tiny bronze half pence pieces existed and you felt you had loads of money;

Children would jump for joy with a 10 pence mix up;

Children played water fights during the summer holidays with empty washing up liquid bottles;

Everyone in the community knew each other and looked out for each other;

Hardly anyone had a car;

Getting a 50 pence toy from the local shop, felt like Christmas;

The milkman delivered your glass bottles of milk on your front door step every morning;

As children, we played, football rounders, hide and seek, skipping ropes, kick the can, hopscotch, obstacle courses, sprint races, tennis, swingball, talent shows…and all outdoors!

My Dad, Grans, Granda, Aunties, Uncle, Godmother and some good School Pals were all living back then – now sadly missed . . . . . . oh how I remember when!

Battling the Ordinary

let’s enjoy the process and give back as much as we can

Rightly or wrongly, I’ve always battled with living the ordinary kinda life – I just didn’t and still don’t see that for myself.

So, 49 years young, how’s it all looking now?

Well, honestly, probably 75% of it still feels like “ordinary” to me but I now have an absolute CLEAR VISION and SUPER STRONG FOCUS on how to change that to EXTRAORDINARY!

“Bit by bit”, has always been a key phrase for me and it really does work, if you stay consistent and committed to your goal in action.

So what will make the difference now, as opposed to 5, 10 or 20 years ago?

Well, this time, I am building on absolute SOLID ground and my core values are so deep rooted into the purpose behind my vision that even a magnitude 10 earthquake could not shake me off this meaningful path.

You see, I never had that before. I always had the belief and the self-confidence but spinning too many plates, led to too many distractions and therefore building on shaky ground – that was never going to last longterm.

I also just ‘feel it in my bones’ this time around. Everything seems to be pointing in the right direction and I feel like I am dancing towards the finish line, rather than running scared!

It can be exhausting changing your life for the better. So much energy is consumed at the start and it feels like nothing much is happening. It’s usually when you feel like giving up that a little glimmer of hope begins to sparkle from the distance.

Please don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a blast, living most of my ordinary life and it can feel quite perfect at certain times. We all have different definitions of ordinary – it’s really just down to personal preference and can be simple or somewhat complex.

Ultimately, if you’re happy, well in my eyes, you’ve already hit the jackpot and I genuinely salute you.

Does that then mean I’m not happy, chasing the extraordinary? For me, I am happy and I am MOST HAPPIEST pursuing my aspirational future whilst helping others along the way.

I guess, we’re all in this together, so let’s enjoy the process and give back as much as we can.

The Good in Fear

“giving it a go”

A friend once said to me, “I don’t do fear”. I was like, “WOW”, what a way to think! She would share stories with me of times in her life when she faced so much adversity that fear was never an option for her – she had to survive! This woman is one super BRAVE lady!

Today though, as I reflect back on that enlightening conversation, I think of all the times in my younger life when being “fearful” was actually a positive for me.

I was sometimes fearful of my teachers at school, so much so, I would do extra studying after school, just so I could get the teacher’s question right in class. Overall, I think that did me a litte bit of good – especially in Accounts, which I hated but passed with flying colours!

I was lots of times fearful of doing talks and presentations in front of a little or a lot of people. This fear was also good, because it made me practice and practice and PRACTICE in order to improve and become better at it. In a weird sort of way, I still find it easier to talk to a live audience of thousands of people, rather than an intimate bunch of 20. Give me a huge big stage and I’m comfortably on it! I also have a very loud voice and super high energy – so I guess it all fits!

I’m certainly not advocating all fear, I just think, sometimes it can work to your advantage in certain ‘self-development’ circumstances.

Where, I think fear did not work for me, was when I pulled myself out of the running races at School because I knew I wasn’t fast enough to beat some other runners. In my head at the time, I thought, I’m not entering this competition because I won’t win the gold medal and I don’t want silver or bronze – how super childish is that thinking!

That type of silly thinking also straddled into my young work life when I didn’t go for early promotions because I thought other colleagues would get the job over me and I didn’t want to deal with the hurt, embarrassment and rejection. So this type of fear that I am describing, is really NOT good. Thankfully, those types of fear I just don’t have anymore and nothing like that ever holds me back from “giving it a go”.

Today, I am a “face fear head on” type of person – if I’m fearful – then I must do it – that’s it!

Imagine yourself today, STRONG, FEARLESS and POWERFUL – now what you going to do about it?

Peaceful Tranquility

give yourself some well needed ‘breathing space”

Are you craving for some peaceful tranquility in your life right now?

If you’re running around in a frenzy trying to get everything done yesterday, then maybe you do need to slow down a bit.

There is nothing more important than your health and wellbeing, so please, give yourself some well needed, ‘breathing space’.

Your family, friends and work will benefit more in the long run, if you jump off that hamster wheel and take some ‘time out’.

Your head and your heart needs a break from all the noise and unnecessary distractions that pull you in so many different directions. How on earth can you move forward with all that stuff pulling you back.

Make time for yourself to BE YOURSELF – not the angry parent, stressed out boss, frustrated friend or worried workmate.

Just time for you, to focus on YOU!

I bet, even that very thought, seems like bliss.

Remember you are deeply loved, respected and admired by the people in your life – so make sure you bring your best energy when you’re with them and that means a well rested you in advance.

I think your time to recharge is long overdue.

You’ve got this…..always!

Never EVER Doubt

be proud of your life successes

Remember your experience and you’ll remember your worth!

Many years ago, a genius mind once said to my doubtful mind, “Claire, remember your experience” and that was EVERYTHING I needed to hear at that moment in time.

For some reason, I had forgotten about it for a little while and it turned me into a short-term worrying wreck. However, as soon as I was triggered to think about what I brought to the table, I turned into that brave, courageous, self-confident human being I love.

Never EVER doubt the extraordinary qualities you offer and be proud of your life successes to date.

You truly are one of a kind!

Be THEE Leader

BIG THINKERS with a purposeful VISION

I was a Professional Executive Coach for many years and really did do very well in it. I met the most AMAZING leaders, whom I learned so much from. I found similar qualities in the leaders who made the BEST progress and I share below some of these:-

An incredibly ambitious growth mindset;

Deep listeners with a real eagerness to become more self-aware;

A true drive and enthusiasm for positive self-change;

Powerful and fast acting on the implementation
of new ideas and learning;

A desire to become a better leader and to empower others
to see their own leadership capabilities;

An unbelieveable ability to turn things around where needed;

Internally honest and seekers of truth to help them
get out of their own way;

An energetic passion for meaningful results
within themselves and others;

A first class ability to know what needs done and
the onboard accountability for doing it;

Aspirational in their thinking and inspirational in their doing;

BIG THINKERS with a purposeful VISION;

And, let me tell you, this impressive list of leadership qualities goes on and on!

I am proud to say, I worked with the GREATEST in their field and I will never forget how ELATED and ENERGISED we both would feel after a truly progressive coaching session.

If you are in a leadership position and are currently struggling with your current set up or difficult strategic decisions – seek out a recommended professional executive coach or business mentor, who will ignite your inner drive, deeply question your current position and open up your own strategic thinking to achieve the necessary results.

There are an abundance of leadership coaching tools out there, that a highly skilled coach or mentor can share with you, in order to help you progress FAST!

Leaders have a lot of heavy plates spinning, whilst under a tremendous amount of work and personal stress – maybe it’s time to seek out the expertise you need.

Don’t stay stuck and never stay stagnant!

Be THEE Leader!

Strive to be the Greatest

Never apologise for aiming to be the BEST in your field.

Even if you never ever become the BEST in your field, the fact that you actually strive to be the greatest, is what will make the difference between being ordinary or being AWESOME.

I always aim to be better today than yesterday – it might not always work out, but at least I go for it!

If I believe I AM THE GREATEST in my field, I won’t let limited thinking stand in my way of progression.

Even if, in the eyes of many, I am not the greatest, I don’t allow their thinking to have a negative affect on mine. Well, wouldn’t that be a bit BIG HEADED then? Absolutely NOT, if it is for a meaningful purpose and aligns with your core values.

Never apologise for aiming to be the BEST in your field. Never ‘dumb down’ your talents and abilities to fit into a smaller box. In my opinion, battle your way out of any boxed thinking and set yourself FREE to achieve greatness.

If you’re not aligned with the above – that’s okay – you just need to kick your way out of that box!

I see you doing AMAZING things, when you let your greatness shine through.

In Time You’ll See

Inspiration lives in you

In time you’ll see the difference between those people that truly matter to you and those that don’t.

In time you’ll see that some of the things you once worried about are now so insignificant.

In time you’ll see how strong you truly are when you need to be.

In time you’ll see that we all have weaknesses and that’s actually okay.

In time you’ll see that the bad days can turn good and the good days can turn bad.

In time you’ll see that some people just ‘get you’ and quite simply, others do not.

In time you’ll see how important a good night’s sleep is.

In time you’ll see that perfection is in the imperfections.

In time you’ll see that the right people will cross your path when you least expect it.

In time you’ll see that kindness is one of the greatest qualities a person can have.

AND HOPEFULLY, in time you’ll see that inspiration lives in you and you must share your greatness with the world.

IN TIME YOU’LL SEE!

Yesterday’s Dreams

it does matter that you start

Let’s hope you are not craving today, the sheer magnetic power of your unfulfilled dreams – for that truly is a difficult pill to swallow.

What if though, you had another chance?

What if, you decided today, right now, to simply, GO FOR IT!

It doesn’t matter if you start a little or a lot of late, but it does matter that you start.

Imagine yourself, right now, in that place of achieving that very dream – isn’t it just, a truly wonderful feeling.

Yesterday’s dreams, are still there for the taking. Never close the door on what your passionate heart longs for.

Think of a world where everyone is using their innate talents to achieve dreams of greatness.

Now that truly is a dream come true.

Don’t limit yourself any longer – go do that thing, you know is absolutely meant for you.

Drive or be Driven

always visualise yourself winning

Personally, I prefer to drive my own way through life – sometimes the journey is smooth and other times it’s a very bumpy ride.

Life, with all its twists and turns, can somedays be higher than high, then the next day, lower than low – I guess, that’s just the way life is and we must, stay strong and roll with the punches.

Set backs in life are inevitable but it’s important that you remain determined and resilient as ever, as these powerful qualities bring real passion to the common phrase “keep going”.

Always visualise yourself WINNING, no matter what’s going on around you. I encourage you to DRIVE from within and get to your desired destination, with that amazing feeling of real self-achievement.

Remember, your deep experience in life, love and in work. You are crowned everyday with unique capabilities that are open to true growth and self-expansion

I challenge wonderful YOU, to forge your way forward into achieving your goals and aspirations.

Ponder on this thought for today…..DRIVE or be DRIVEN?

A Life Worth Living

you can always start today

What would it take from you each and everyday to lead a life worth living?

It’s a simple, yet HUGE question that is important for you to answer.

What does “a life worth living” specifically mean to YOU?

I want you to really think about that today and answer it with an honest heart.

To me, life is always worth living – even on tough days, there is always a golden nugget of learning to be found.

May every step that you take on this journey of life, be special and meaningful and if it’s not?…..well, you can always start today.

Maybe this is your calling!

Don’t Play the Blame Game

forge forward with all your might and self-power

The title says it all really, doesn’t it?

If you ever, EVER hear yourself blaming others for something that is NOT going right in your life, I want you to STOP that useless thinking RIGHT NOW!

You are where you are, because of YOU. Hold yourself accountable for your own decisions, choices and wants that took you to where you are standing today.

If you are NOT happy with where you’re at, don’t go blaming anyone else for that. Take control of the situation NOW and do what you need to do to CHANGE that.

The past is the PAST, the present goes so fast, it is basically the past – so focus on your future wants and needs and bring your “A” game to the table in order to achieve your desires.

Don’t ever play the “blame” game – I promise you, it’s pulling you backwards and that’s not a progressive direction to be heading in.

Forge forward with all your might and self-power and let go of that draining blaming stuff today.

Go on then – oh and don’t blame me if you don’t do it!

I see you flying high…..always and I want you to see it too!

Do You Know?

drive yourself forward into your dreams

Do you know what it takes from you to reach your highest potential?

Do you know what you exactly want from life?

Do you know where you want to see yourself in 2-5 years from now?

Do you know what your core values are and if you are aligned with them right now?

Do you know the special qualities that you bring to the table and how to make sure you are utilising them as best you can?

Do you know how to unleash the greatest parts of you, so that you can contribute effectively to your dreams, goals and aspirations?

Now, turn each “do you know” question into “what will it take”; “what do I want” “what are my”……

It’s important that you DO KNOW the answer to these questions and it is more important that if you want to achieve these desires for yourself, that you take committed action on a daily basis to make them happen.

Hold yourself accountable and drive yourself forward into your dreams.

Did you know this?

Inspired by Truth

honouring your core values

Be inspired by the truth and deepest wisdom that lives and breathes inside of you.

Intuitively, I believe you know what truly feels right for you and what is feeling forced.

I know we all know this but for some reason, we don’t always live by it.

When I say “forced”, I definitely don’t mean “challenged”, for I see the latter as leading to growth and that is such a good thing.

‘Forced’ is the opposite of truth and a backwards step away from who you really are.

By focussing your energies on honouring your core values, you feel free, happier and super strong.

Always stay true to yourself, for this is your life to live and you deserve it to be GREAT!

Running for the Hills

stay in that “feel good” mode

I love outdoor running, I find it energising and therapeutic at the same time. I have noticed that when I take a break from running for a few months or so, I don’t feel as good.

This morning, I did an early morning run to the Italian Fountains in Hyde Park, London – it was beautiful and so refreshing.

Running is something I have enjoyed since a child and I guess my love for it has stayed the same.

I think it’s important in life to do something that you love and is very good for you. Think about what activities give you the greatest enjoyment and uplift your energy.

I encourage you to support your body and mind in your daily habits – it has such a positive knock-on effect in everything in your life.

So whether you’re, running for the hills today or rolling down the hills – stay in that ‘feel good” mode.

Wishing you a happy and fulfiled day.

Strong Foundations

it will be worth it in the long run

Whatever you’re setting out to achieve in life, make sure you focus on putting those strong foundations in place.

If you’re trying to build on shaky ground, it’s not going to be too long before things topple over.

Identify what each pillar of foundation needs to be and go about strengthening each one of them.

It may take much more time to do this at the beginning but I guarantee you, it will be worth it in the long run.

Now then, what are you going to build today?

Excited for Change

you were always the answer

When you really start to get excited about the positive changes you want to make in your life, that type of feeling becomes a true magnet for what you want to manifest.

This type of future thinking – excited energy, really does bring about the right vibe for wonderful transformations to take place.

So don’t focus too much on the problem, keep your mind on the solution and desired outcomes.

I feel super excited for you because I know your greatest potential will be your mirror very soon.

It’s time to strengthen your soul with the deepest power of visualisation and self-belief.

You were always the answer.

Keep that thinking high and your actions higher.

In the Heat of the Night

stay ON IT!

Your mindset can uplift you to the highest of highs or the lowest of lows, so please make sure you focus on the former, rather the latter here.

In the heat of the night, keep your cool by sorting out in your mind, what needs done in order to make things better for you.

What do you need and want to change?

What do you need to do today to keep you moving forward?

What will you commit to doing and how will you hold yourself accountable?

When it gets to the “enough is enough” stage, it’s amazing the amount of energy you can conjure up in order to change a tough situation around.

It’s you against you – there is never anyone else involved.

Prove to yourself today that you can definitely do what needs done and then get busy doing that. If you do that over the next 48 hours – WOW, what a real difference you will make to your life in just a short space of time. Imagine then, you kept going with that positive change for a year!

Stay magical, stay you and stay ON IT!

It’s the only way to a better way.

It’s Time

Never is there a better time than NOW to change things in your life for the better. NOW is it.

You know what you need to do – you’ve always known. So just take that one tiny baby step in the right direction.

The new you can’t wait any longer, it’s time.

Believe me……it really is time!

It’s your life, go get it!

Light Comes Back

stars appear

This is one of my favourite original quotes and the excerpt is taking from a short poetic story I wrote many years ago. My plan is to turn the story into a book one day….watch this space!

“The midnight sky is vast and black, yet stars appear and light comes back.”

If God Lets Me…..

shine like the morning sun

1.
If God lets me
I'll always lead the way
If God lets me
I'll kneel down with him and pray
If God lets me
I'll do him very proud
If God lets me
I'll help all lost in the crowd 

2.
If God lets me
I'll shine like the morning sun
If God lets me
I'll do what he needs done
If God lets me
I'll be a beacon of pure strength
If God lets me
I'll go to any given length 

3.
If God lets me
I'll show him my full power
If God lets me
I'll respect his every hour
If God lets me
I'll take the best right turn
If God lets me
I'll let all worry burn 

4.
If God lets me
I'll give him my all
If God lets me
I'll knock down each brick wall
If God lets me
I'll be happy in present time
If God lets me
I'll forever be more than fine 

5.
If God lets me
I'll forgive and forget
If God lets me
I'll get out of all bad debt
If God lets me
I'll love him like no other
If God lets me
I'll make peace with every brother 

6.
If God lets me
I'll hold my head up high
If God lets me
I'll be truthful and not lie
If God lets me
I'll always sing his song
If God lets me
I'll make right every wrong 

7.
If God lets me
I'll live life to the full
If God lets me
I'll obey his every rule
If God lets me
I'll share the good I know
If God lets me
I'll give all hope a go 

8.
If God lets me
I'll believe in my self-worth
If God lets me
Every wave of life I'll surf
If God lets me
I'll be positive and bright
If God lets me
I'll sleep peacefully each night 

9.
If God lets me
I"ll take my second chance
If God lets me
I'll celebrate and dance
If God lets me
I'll show him I am real
If God lets me
I trust he'll make the deal

Moving Fast and Thinking Slow

Moving Fast and Thinking Slow

moving fast thinking slow

Moving Fast

I’m all for getting things done, moving forward and heading in the right direction, that’s the kind of action mode I like being in – fast, fast, fast!

Thinking Slow

However, when it comes to thinking time and planning time, that’s where the pace has to slow down. You won’t achieve any quick wins in life by rushing your thinking and creating a super fast plan. Effective plans need space, they need time to formulate and they need an intelligent formula shaped from your thinking, in order to achieve the right results.

In a Rush?

So next time you’re in a rush to get things done ever so quickly, make sure this fast moving comes after the slow making plan…..this is how to get what you want……period!

It’s your life, go get it!

To Start and To Finish

start finish

To Start and To Finish

What do you want to start and/or what do you want to finish?

Well, this is your calling, go for it, make a commitment to start that thing that you want to do and/or finish with those bad old habits.

You’re only one decision away from a different kind of life, remember that!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

Everything Starts…….

everything starts

Everything Starts……

Everything starts as a tiny seed….EVERYTHING!

You’ve got to nourish that seed, you’ve got to give it your love, your energy and your efforts every single day.  When you do this, that seed grows and blossoms like never before.  That seed is your greatest potential waiting to be discovered.

Nurture the seed, for it is where EVERYTHING STARTS!!

It’s Your Life, Go Get It!!

The Meaningful Way

The Meaningful Way

Many paths lead to different destinations and different choices can decide the route BUT the best way, the most fulfilling and meaningful way, is by doing this your way and that’s the path you should take…..anyway, I know you will.

It’s Your Life, Go Get It!!

I’ll Try?

I'll Try

I’ll Try!!

There are no commitments with the term “I’ll Try”…..you’ll try??  In my book, you either “Do” or you “Don’t”, none of this “I’ll Try”.  Make a decision to commit and throw out the option of “I’ll Try” – it’s not an option in my book.

Do or Don’t ……Simple!!

It’s Your Life Go Get It!!

New Decision, New Life

new life old life

New Decision, New Life

You could be one decision away from a different kinda life, a different outcome and a completely new ball game.  Just one decision, really…….just think about that but most of all, think about your decision.

New decision, new life!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

Change It Up

change it up

Change It Up

If you’re in the mood for a change from the norm, then put yourself in the driving seat and change life up a bit for yourself.  This could be anything from a small thing like going to a different restaurant or a much bigger thing like changing where you live.  Don’t stay stuck in a rut with life, change it up.

So there you have it, change it up!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

Stay Disciplined

self discipline

Stay Disciplined

Self discipline is like building a muscle, the more you work on it, the stronger you become.  Think about what you need to stay disciplined at to help you move forward in your life.  What do you need to do to help you to become stronger and more focussed on achieving one of your life goals?  Remember, things are changing all the time around you, change is a must.  Think about what you need or want to change in your life, make a plan and stick to it.  That doesn’t mean a straight road will take you there, more often than not it’s a bumpy, twisting and long road possibly with some difficult and some exciting turns along with the way.  Practice the art of self discipline and it will make this road much more easier to travel on.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Are You Living a Fulfilled Life?

happy life

Happy Times

I want you to think about a time in your life when you were at your happiest, go on, think about it now.

  • What was happening to you in your life then?
  • What were you doing?
  • What were you thinking about?
  • Who were you with?
  • Where were you?
  • Why were you so happy?

Isn’t it such a lovely feeling to think of that right now, doesn’t it make your heart smile.

Great Strength

Great strength can be taken from these happy moments and I will tell you why.

If you can be happy like that in the past, then you can be happy like that in the future and even better still, you can be happy like that in the NOW.

Quality Experiences

Life is not made up of all the things you want to buy and then go out and buy them, that is only a short term fix.  Life is made up of quality experiences, happy experiences, happy times, family times, loving times, grateful times, precious times.  Life is for living and is not necessarily for buying unless that buying can bring you precious quality experiences for the long term.

Are You Living a Fulfilled Life?

Are you living a fulfilled life?  If your answer is “yes” then I am truly so happy for you but if it’s not, think about what you can change in your life right now to make it more fulfilling for you and for your loved ones.

A Life Worth Living

I want you to live a fulfilled life, a happy life, an exciting life, a life worth living.

Stuff the Stuff

stuff the stuff declutter

Old Stuff

I have been travelling a lot lately for work purposes and I have managed to do a lot of de-cluttering in the process, basically because I have had to.  I managed to get rid of 20 large bags of “stuff”, mainly lots of clothes, shoes, handbags, paperwork etc… that I was holding onto, but didn’t actually need or use.  I honestly can say that it felt so good to get rid of it all, I felt free from junk and “old stuff”, it was such an amazing “freedom feeling”.  I was actually annoyed at myself for not realising I had been buying so much “stuff”. “Stuff” that I didn’t really need and it really did make me think about my buying behaviours.

Stuff the Stuff

So my motto today, going forward in life is, “Stuff the Stuff”, when you actually look at it and really think about it, you don’t need all that “stuff”, I bet you don’t.

So today, I want you to have a “Stuff the Stuff” mindset and start de-cluttering, get rid of the junk, get rid of the “stuff” and I know you will feel so much better for it.

Go on, make your day today a “Stuff the Stuff” day.

What Question?

What question could you ask yourself today, that would really inspire you to move forward positively in your life? Really think about it…….what question do you really need to ask yourself?

This question has really got my brain working hard……what is my question for myself?…….I need more time……because I want this question to catapult my soul into the heart of the universe, I want it to reinvigorate every cell in my body…..I want my question to illuminate my passion with sheer excitement and enthusiasm…..I wonder if there is such a question? oops and that’s not my question haha).

What’s your question?

Take a Chance on Change

Change is good, it really is. What do you need to change for you? What daily habits do not serve you anymore? I bet there is one that you’re thinking about right now, you know there is. Go on, take a chance on change.

Happy changing, love Clarabelle
