Mountains of Hope

The matrix of love

Enchanted by life,
in awe of its beauty,
mountains of hope,
daring and duty.

Challenger clouds,
soulful and misty,
breathe deep truth,
collectively risky.

The matrix of love,
operates with time,
subconsciously giving,
rythym and rhyme.

As memories fade,
beyond the black hole,
nothing is everything,
let the dice roll.

Clarabelle

In the Light of Day

When faith meets love

Poetic heart,
shining bright,
in the light of day,
on a starry night.

You give me hope,
and help me grow,
you let me see,
what I should know.

Times gone by,
tells the story,
when faith meets love,
wisdom and glory.

I hear your words,
gently talking,
guiding me forward,
to keep on walking.

New Year Hearts

A celebration of life

Happy New Year wonderful you. Here is my first poetic verse of 2023 to you.

New year hearts,
sharing the best,
travelling together,
north, south, east, west.

A world of kindness,
where all do care,
a celebration of life,
I'll meet you there.

Where love is forever,
and happiness lives,
encouraging greatness,
and everyone gives.

May this New Year,
show you the light,
of how special you are,
wonderful and bright.

The Magic of Life Itself

Truly ‘live’ your life

In life we see death, In death we see life.

The quote above may seem a little bit morbid at this time of year and I definitely don’t want to bring any darkness into your life today.

I want you to think about how this quote speaks to you. In my own mind, it creates a sense of appreciation and gratitude for the now and the magic of life itself. It pushes me to see ‘LIFE IN LIFE’ and to cherish that each and everyday.

Truly ‘live’ your life and know what that means for you.

As 2023 approaches believe in life, believe in your magnetic energy and believe in your self-power.

Clarabelle

Take Yourself Home

It’s time to come home to you

It is in the depths of darkness we find our magical light.

Take yourself home – not to a place or to familiar people – I mean, take yourself home to you.

Remember what makes you tick and what makes you feel alive. It’s easy to get lost in the crowd and do what everyone else is doing but what if that’s not really you?

Maybe it’s time to take your foot off the gas and stop to think about you, what you’re doing and where you’re going?

Being true to yourself is much more difficult to achieve on the hamster wheel of life – that’s why you must break out of that cycle and take a breath for you.

It’s time to come home to you and it’s time to make the time for it.

You’ve got this!

Clarabelle

Shining Star

You are the magic

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

Keep on dancing your way through life and don’t let anyone dim your beautiful light.

Remember, you are the magic and it’s time to release your power.

There is challenge, there is change but most of all there is choice. May you choose to adopt the right daily habits that will serve you well and lead you to your dreams.

You truly are a shining star!

I love to write for us both and as you probably know, a lot of the time, I’m talking to myself in these posts – trying to give you and me some needed words of encouragement.

So, THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH for spending your precious time reading my posts and I really do hope they offer you some true value in your life.

We’re all in this together and it’s important to support to each other.

THANK YOU MY FRIEND, THANK YOU ONE AND ALL.

Lots of love Clarabelle

The Happier Side of Life

Life brings a roller coaster of changes that we are often not prepared for.

What do I know about what you’re going through right now? I have no idea if you’re feeling good or lying low but I do know that life brings a roller coaster of changes that we are often not prepared for.

We all have an emotional response to what’s going on around us and some of us are better at controlling that emotion or how we react to it.

There are so many different factors that determine how we respond to any given situation and I bet you, if you’re having a particularly bad day, you won’t respond the same way as you would, if you were having a good day.

Let’s keep it simple and say a bad day may equal a bad response and a good day may equal a good response. Therefore, if you want to respond better to challenging situations that come your way, it’s better to focus on the things that will help you have good day.

We can’t control other people and what they do but we can do as much as we can for ourselves to have a better kind of day.

Lately, I’ve been trying this out for myself and through my own daily efforts, I have managed to have more good days and good reponses than not so good ones. Below is a short list of some of the things I have been doing:

Reduced my intake of refined sugar. Although I really do love sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolates and all that lovely stuff, I noticed it was having a detrimental effect on my mood. I certainly had more of a short fuse when sugared up to the max with these delicious fancies. By cutting these out of my diet for the last four months I have noticed a positive difference in my mindset and mood.

Cut out caffeine. Caffeine has always been a tricky one for me, I love to love it but hated the brain crash when the caffeine wore off. This, so called crash put me into a low and cranky mood and I didn’t like that one bit. So I decided, let’s cut this stuff out of my diet and see how it goes. I must say my mood has definitely uplifted and my energy levels are higher and more constant throughout the day.

Got myself back in the gym. I stopped the gym for about a year and I did notice the negative changes in my body because of it. So, I started going back to the gym 2-3 times per week and this also had a positive impact on my energy levels and mood.

Running. I love to run but again, like the gym, I stopped it for a while and I’ve got to say, I really missed my running. Running makes my whole body feel good and alive, so I make sure I run at least twice a week to get the full goodness from it.

Writing. I love writing on this blog and creating poems but I stopped for about four years and that wasn’t good for me – I was unhappy with not satisfying my creative side. So I started writing on this Clarabelle blog about five months ago and that makes me feel on top of the world.

Went on holiday. I hadn’t been on a proper holiday for a number of years and it was well overdue. This holiday really did refresh my body and mind and reminded me of how good it is to ‘getaway’ every now and again.

Positive Relationships. I started focussing on having more positive and meaningful relationships that fulfilled me and inspired me to be a better person and reach for my goals. The power of having these good relationships in your life are highly impactful and can be a real gamechanger in terms of your own love and happiness.

Sleep. One of the most important factors for me in having a better day is by getting a good night’s sleep for at least 8 hours every night. I love my sleep and never feel guilty about putting my head to rest and going for a well deserved nap. Give me a great night’s sleep and I’ll be on point the whole day through.

Water. Since I stopped the caffeine, I don’t drink fizzy soda drinks or anything like that anymore. I mainly stick to sparkling and still water and aim to drink about two litres of this beautiful stuff everyday.

Motivation. I love listening to a little bit of motivational talks everyday, it just keeps my head in the right space. Every morning I listen to “7 Good Minutes” on Spotify and it really does have a positive impact on my focus and mood throughout the day. I always say to myself, “if they can do it, I can do it” – it’s powerful stuff!

There are so many other factors that I could add to the above list, like being around family, going for walks in nature, being by the sea, watching a beautiful sunrise or sunset, doing more fun things and the list goes on.

It really all comes down to choosing to do those things everyday that will help you be a better you and ultimately have better days. I am sure most of us, if not all, would rather be around a positive, good energy person that handles most challenges well and chooses to live on the happier side of life.

Where Do I Fall?

A winning heart, is a champion mind.

A very warm welcome to wonderful you. It’s Youtube Tuesday and today’s original video poem is all about bouncing back after a fall. I have always said, resilience is built in the bouncing back, not when everything is running smoothly.

Hopefully, today’s video will help to motivate and inspire you to KEEP GOING. There will always be challenges, but you are much GREATER than any challenge that comes your way – remember that.

Where Do I Fall

Where do I fall, if not at my feet?
What keeps me going, after defeat?
A focused forever, of what I am.
A determined spirit, of “Yes I Can”.
For a winning heart, is a champion mind.
My faith is amazing, it is one of a kind.

Poetry Days

I will have a POETIC EMPIRE evolving before your eyes

I hope you’re having a truly wonderful day – I really do.

I was reflecting today (28 October 2022) on how much I love writing poetry, so much so, that I decided to change this whole Clarabelle blog into one GIGANTIC POETIC VISION.

So you will see that some things have changed around here and my main aim will be to continue to write poetry daily and share it with you. Going back to my roots and keeping it simple.

I will still add in some empowerment food for thought along the way but my strong focus now, going forward is, quite simply, to write poems and share them with you.

So there you have it. Poetry all the way.

The Clarabelle Podcast will now become the Clarabelle Poetry Podcast and I will share my spoken word poetry with you.

The motivational and encouraging posts will now be entwined in some sort of poetic format.

The videos I create, will all be poetic.

The Clarabelle products on sale currently all contain poetic verses and I will continue with this.

Basically, I will have a POETIC EMPIRE evolving before your eyes.

So that’s it for today. I am currently in Bonny Scotland visiting my lovely Mum who is celebrating her 80th birthday but I will continue to write on here daily whilst away.

My motto today is: keep it simple and do you

Thank you for being here.

Poetry Corner #13 Catch the Light

let it shine all around

Touched by emotion,
loving life,
freeing my spirit,
from worry and strife.

Keeping it together,
hoping for all,
rising faith,
breaks down the brick wall.

In the twist of the wind,
no enemies appear,
all friends together,
filled with good cheer.

An unfulfilled heart,
takes you beyond,
frozen miracles,
reflected in the pond.

Catch the light,
let it shine all around,
mystic and magic,
will soon be found.

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!

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!

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.

Uplift My Spirits

to a happier place

Uplift my spirits,
higher than the sun,
guide me through,
all that needs done.

Tell me everything,
I need to hear,
even in silence,
let it be clear.

Sometimes I feel lost,
strange in a way,
not in the crowd,
but bewildered each day.

The path I have chosen,
doesn't feel right,
how did I get here,
without the pure light?

Is there a turning,
to a happier place,
where doing what I love,
fulfils me with grace?

If what I do seek,
is surely seeking me,
maybe this wrong track,
is where I should be?

And what if the rainbow,
is not far away,
and its spectrum of love
guided me to here today?

Goodbye My Precious

I set you free

I tried so hard,
to win your heart,
I gave it my all,
right from the start.

I guess you didn't,
want that too,
I felt your resistance,
through and through.

So I moved on,
then you came back,
for another go,
to get on the right track.

My soul felt heavy,
for this buried hurt,
cannot be separated,
from cold dirt.

I set you free,
to live and learn,
deep true love,
you have to earn.

It takes respect,
trust and forgiving,
loyalty and smiles,
the same joint vision.

Goodbye my precious,
may you find your one,
to my dreams on the horizon
every mile I run.

What is…..?

a miracle glowing

What is love,
without surprise,
a caring thought,
heartfelt eyes.

What is kindness,
without the giving,
touching lives,
soulful living.

What is forgiveness,
without a prayer,
sharing you,
unique and rare.

What is gratitude,
without the knowing,
a thankful bond,
a miracle glowing.

What is here,
without your presence,
healing time,
your very essence.

CHAMPION HEART

give life your all

When the wild wind blows,
and you're down on your knees,
begging for mercy,
praying for please.

Lift your head high,
stand up tall,
break down those barriers,
give life your all.

Many would hope,
for your inner strength,
running on empty,
but going every length.

Your champion heart,
can carry you forever,
up the highest mountain,
across each raging river.

See yourself winning,
battling each storm,
building the new,
challenging the norm.

When You Lose a Life

missing their touch

Most of us who have suffered the great loss of a precious loved one, may indeed connect to the following poem. 

I want you to know that I feel you and I truly understand the deepest hurt losing a loved one can bring.

WHEN YOU LOSE A LIFE

When you lose a life,
you loved so much,
absence of hugs,
missing their touch.

You grieve their heart,
you once embodied before,
many sleepless nights,
craving them more.

An invisible pain,
that never goes away,
so lost without them,
a hate for each day.

No one shares,
the hurt in you,
life feels numb,
purposeless too.

But know their presence,
lives in your soul,
a bond so strong,
making you whole.

Believe they stand,
right by your side,
giving you energy,
watching with pride.

They are your candle,
giving you light,
they are your blanket,
comforting you at night.

They listen to your whispers,
guide your inner thoughts,
solving your problems,
untying the knots.

So remember their smile,
laughter and glow,
bringing you solice,
when you feel low.

Know that their spirit,
embraces your love,
forever your star,
shining from above.

In The Eye of a Needle

New Year

I am in poetic flow at the moment, this one’s for you.  Sometimes I don’t know what these poems mean, I wonder what they mean to you?

In the Eye of a Needle

In the eye of a needle,
My soul breathes deep.
I see my heart,
Secrets I keep.

I bury my mind,
In a tunnel of love.
A cave with no light.
Blue sky with no dove.

It’s beyond the horizon,
Seems so far away.
Yet closer than I think,
Honest whispers I pray.

And on a misty morn,
The freshness I feel.
Both of us together,
This dream is real.

I hold out my hand,
Please take it with care.
A nurtured passion,
Leaves my soul stripped bare.

Do It With Pride

You're a Star

Celebrate how far you’ve come and welcome the journey of tomorrow.  Today is your blessing, today be grateful for everything you have achieved so far, you’ve done good you know, you’ve done real good!! This poem’s for you.

Do It With Pride

The bells’s ringing,
I’m ready to go
Are you with me?
Bring on the show.

Smiles in your pocket
Hope on your back
Plough through all weathers
Get back on track

Start where you are
Think always good
Be kind to yourself
Don’t say “should”

Come on my friend
You’re almost there
One more step
A little more care

Concentrate, focus
Have faith in your stride
Go a little further
Do it with pride.

Rough Patches of Life

IMG_3584.JPG

On the pathway to your dreams you are most certainly going to have to get over some rough patches. There may be a cluster of them all at once or more sporadic than that, over a lengthier period of time, but regardless they will be there, eager to put you to the challenge.

Are you up for the challenge?  I surely am, it’s only a “rough patch”, how rough can it get?

Like stormy waters or a rocky road, these challenges make your adventure even more worthwhile because there are many lessons in these hidden bumps.

See if you can change your perception towards the rough patches of life, see them as part of the mystery, as part of the muscle building process for your inner strength. These so called rough patches, strengthen your character and prepare you for the mountain ahead. How big is your mountain? You see, I reckon if it’s not big enough, if it’s not scary enough, then you need a bigger, much higher mountain to climb and that means a bigger more ambitious vision for yourself.

My mountain climb is scary but scary in a good way, the challenge excites me and I see myself, ALWAYS getting to the top…..I am happiest climbing the mountain, especially when I look back and see how far I have come – wow did I really make that journey?

WOW yourself today with your big mountain climb challenge, go on, I dare you!!

Happier days are now, love to you, Clarabelle

Test Your Inner Strength

IMG_3468

How do you know you are strong, how do you really know, have you tested your inner strength recently? Why not test it again over the next few days, weeks, months?…I encourage you to set yourself a goal, a goal that will challenge your inner being, a goal that when you reach it, you know that you are even more stronger that you could ever imagine.

Make a commitment to yourself to be brave, to release your courageous soul into the universe and let it unleash your greatest potential to fight for that goal.  Make sure it’s a goal worth fighting for and if it is……well I already know you’ve made it, I already know and you do too.

Test your inner strength…….and enjoy the journey.

Love Clarabelle

Isn’t Life Funny

IMG_3457

A poem of how funny life can be sometimes….funny strange that is!!

Isn’t Life Funny

Isn’t life funny,
In a strange kind of way.
One moment you’re up,
Another you’re in dismay.

As the clouds pass by,
Remember one thing.
That all can change,
With a telephone ring.

For what you seek,
Is seeking you.
It’s in the air,
Travelling through.

It wants to make you happy,
It wants to make you thrive.
Growing like a sunflower,
Feeling so alive.

So laugh when you can,
Smile at the passer by.
Life is what it is,
And I know you know why.
