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.

how to make it work for you

  1. Be a loyal and trustworthy person and you will have the best friends for life.
  2. Be open and honest with your feelings, it will help people to see the true side of you.
  3. Be helpful and caring towards others and seek first to understand before being understood.
  4. Be a positive and upbeat kind of person – no one wants to be around a drainer – sorry, they just don’t!
  5. Be kind and friendly as much as you can because these qualities are always remembered in you by others.
  6. Really focus on developing yourself as much as possible and read books on other people who have already succeeded in life.
  7. Never judge another – you have not walked in that person’s shoes and you don’t know the difficult experiences other people have had to deal with. No one lives a perfect life, believe that!
  8. Take time to plan what you want out of life in the next 2, 5 and 10 years from now and then go to work EVERYDAY on your plan.
  9. Look after your health and wellbeing and that includes your mental, physical and spiritual.
  10. Keep your finances in check and do your best to never lose money but instead work out how to grow your money and how to make it work for you.

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!

The Greatest Surprise

kind heart and thoughtfulness

I have realised that when I know about an amazing event, activity or gift coming my way, the level of excited anticipation can reach a good 8 out of 10. However, when I am unexpectedly surprised by the kindness of others – even something like someone giving me a surprise cup of coffee – that excitment is, quite simply, off the scale! The elation that I feel when this happens it truly unbelieveable!

I promise you, it’s not really about the actual material thing that has amazingly come into my existence. It’s actually about the kind heart and thoughtfulness of the other person that puts me in this state of elation. The fact that that person took the time out of their day to think about me and show their beautiful heart through kindness.

I believe, the greatest surprise we can all offer someone, is the gift of the human spirit.

Which means, YOU, my dearest YOU, are the most precious gift of them all.

Go with your Gut

your intuition already knows what the answer is

go with your gut

You’ve checked the pros and cons; you’ve overthought the decision; you’ve assessed the situation; and you’ve mapped out different outcomes…..but what it really all boils down to is – what is your gut really saying?  

No matter how much you over analyse a situation and deliberate over an important decision, nothing will give you the absolute satisfaction of that “going with your gut” feeling.

Your intuition already knows what the answer is and you’re over analysing is creating an unnecessary battle.  Surrender to your heart and go with your gut!!

This one’s for you, do it today.

It’s your life, go get it!!

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.

Impactful Thinking

don’t be scared to demonstrate the best of you

There is absolute genius in you and you’ve got to believe that.

No other person in this world has had the exact same experiences as you or thinks exactly like you.

You can always bring ‘another level’ to whatever you are involved in.

Don’t be scared to demonstrate the best of you. Be proud of you and your true potential, enabling you to get to where you want to go.

Never shy away from what you truly deserve to have in your life. Only you can hold you back – now read that line again!

Be a sponge for learning new things, no matter what age you are and ensure you focus your energy on what really matters to you.

Mix all of the above with undeniable self-belief and you’re on your way to not only changing yourself for the better but to having a positive impact on the world too.

You may not think about it in this way, but you really can inspire others with what you say and what you do – that’s how powerful you truly are.

Go out today and show everyone what you’ve got. Your future success relies on today’s impactful thinking, so make sure your brave heart, leads you through every unknown battle and into the life you truly deserve.

Remember, the Champion is in 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!

Take It On

it’s time to walk the talk

Never doubt your own capabilities and the capacity of your true potential.

Push yourself forward into achieving more and more each day.

It’s time to “Take it On” and awaken the deepest passion inside of you.

Your dreams and goals won’t wait for you – it really is time to focus on the NOW!

What do you need to do today to ensure a better tomorrow?

What one thing can you do in this very moment to kickstart the process?

Talking, wishing and hoping won’t get you there – it’s time to walk the talk!

Monday Morning Blues?

you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there

I can honestly say, I haven’t had the Monday Morning Blues for a good few years now and I never want to have them in the future either.

I remember, in my much younger days, getting these feelings, which often started on the Sunday evening!

I know, most of you can relate to those feelings of ‘dread’ going into a job that, for your own reasons, didn’t feel right.

I made a promise to myself a few years back that if I ever got so low again going into a job, I would sort that stuff out super fast.

Thankfully, I know what I want from a job and how I can utilise my skills and experience to contribute effectively. I also know how I want to be led and empowered to bring my best game to the table on a daily basis.

You have the true capacity and pure potential to achieve everything you want from your work and you are in control of whether you make it or break it.

I believe you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there, so make sure you bring your ‘A’ game every single time.

There is this great quote by Rumi, “what you seek, is seeking you”, and for me, this quote is a wonderful reminder to never doubt your capabilities and be mindful of the many doors that are open for you – just walk right in.

You got this – always!

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!

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.

Breathe Again

clouds move the rain

Take a deep breath in and know you have this moment right here, right now and no one can take this specialness away from you.

BREATHE AGAIN

Each space in time,
can give you this,
the calmest breath,
serenity so bliss.

For when you know,
to breathe again,
the sun it rises,
clouds move the rain.

A chosen moment,
yours alone,
heavens open,
a miracle zone.

Momentum Moves You

get things moving

When you build up momentum in the pursuit of a dream or goal, it really does multiply your energies.

Mostly in the beginning of a “start up” phase, or for example, learning a new skill, it can take a whole lot of effort and focus to build those foundations and get things moving.

This is when the power of momentum really does help to make a positive difference.

So, keep up that consistency and channel your laser focus energy into what needs done and soon that magical momentum will kick in.

Momentum moves you and it can move moutains too.

I see you there….. WELL DONE!

The Sun’s Energy

in the deepest cave of hope

In the purest sunlight, the heart shines on like a beacon of love, dancing in the deepest cave of hope.

It is in this magnetic power a new mind is born and faraway horizons seem so close you can touch them.

Maybe all of the things in life, that don’t seem to make sense, were never to be thought about in that way.

What if, you were supposed to stay so present in each moment that thoughts of fear and doubt never ever manifested.

True thought can steer your mind in different directions – and the body, if in conflict or alignment with that thinking, will honour its preferred state of being.

Is your mind leading the way or is it your body? I think neither! I believe the magical field that surrounds your being always empowers the best out of you. It’s time to let this heavenly power communicate with your senses and create miracles through you.

You have everything you need, right here, right now to go far beyond what you think you are capable of achieving.

The sun’s energy cannot exist without you, that’s how important you are to this world.

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.”

A Wonderful You

petals of love

Amidst the clouds,
of a foggy mind,
hard to see,
difficult to find.

Appears hope,
just a glimmer,
igniting life,
joy does simmer.

Time means nothing,
as people and places,
open our hearts,
smiles on their faces.

Flowers like heaven,
flourish and bloom,
petals of love,
enlighten each room.

Be still in the now,
as heartbeats awaken,
a wonderful you,
is there for the taking.

The Greatest Stuck Road

when stuggles keep coming

The greatest stuck road,
can hold you back,
invisible barriers,
keep you off track.

A bumpy path,
often uphill,
it takes real effort,
and lots of skill.

But never is there,
a journey so tough,
that is able to stop you,
no matter how rough.

For deep passion prevails,
every single time,
when struggles keep coming,
and nothing seems fine.

Your wonderful heart,
goes through every test,
until you reach the top,
where the view is the best.

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.

Be Brave

She said, “be brave”.

Today she dreams
of what will be
her vibrant heart
beating free.

Her thoughts they shine
beneath the sun
glowing brightly
in everyone.

When it was dark
in pasts gone by
she battled her way
she challenged her why.

She said "be brave"
be the one
who strives to make it
until it's done.

No other path
could take her where
the heavens opened
soul stripped bare.

She gives her mind
to this cause
silence in love
kind self-applause.

She raised her spirit
embraced inner beauty
to achieve her purpose
she made it her duty.

Give It A Go

give it a go

Give It A Go

This one’s for you, yes YOU!!

You know I’m talking to you….right?

Breathe, everything’s going to be alright and the best advice I can give you today is this:

“You’ve got to give it a go!”

It’s your life, go get it!!

Clarabelle

Carry On

take a deep breath and carry on

Carry On

Maybe none of this make sense right now and maybe you’re even thinking you could be going backwards. However, think about how far you have come, think about the experiences in life that have taken you to this point in your life. Remember, life can’t keep a good one down for very long.  Take a deep breath and carry on. It may feel like the only option but it’s likely the best option for you.  Life has many ups and life as many downs and sometimes it just doesn’t seem very fair.  It’s not  a thought to be holding onto, just you keep going.  Nothing stays the same forever, life is changing all the time and you’ve just got to keep on grinding and believe me, you’ll get there and I know that because you’re here now.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Clarabelle

Be Courageous

be courageous

Be Courageous

Be courageous in your thinking and be courageous in your doing, put yourself to the test and go that extra mile.

To be a courageous thinker you have to fight those automatic “normal” thoughts and turn them around to “extraordinary” thoughts.  When you start doing this, you’ll find that you become braver in your everyday decisions, stronger in making the right choices for you and you become a creator of opportunities rather than waiting on the right opportunity to arise.

Remember though, you have to act out those courageous thoughts because you won’t go anywhere different if they only remain just that.

Be your very own courageous warrior today and everyday.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Clarabelle

You Can Do It

you can do it poem

You Can Do It

Stuck in life,
with nowhere to go,
more downs than ups,
just feeling low.
It’s tough to change,
this situation around,
to find inner strength,
to lift yourself from the ground.
But you can do it,
just make the choice
to depart from the old,
listen to your voice.
The world is open,
to your magic within,
take the first step,
I know you can win.
I want to see,
a smile on your face,
to light up the room,
with your warm embrace.
Give yourself time,
and make a plan,
keep a positive attitude,
and stick with “I can”.
True support and encouragement,
from loved ones is there,
make this moment count,
face your fears, if you dare.
There is always a way,
don’t give up the fight,
I believe in you,
it’s all going to be alright.

Believe In You

believe in you poems

Believe in You

To start afresh,
believe in you,
a chance to change,
for all that’s true.
To give you hope,
and faith in all,
“This time it’s different”,
I hear you call.
The present is here,
embrace all things,
when the sun comes up,
and the morning bird sings.
Awaken your spirits,
make a positive start,
live your life on purpose,
from the depths of your heart.

Ask for Help

helping a friend

Yes, I Will Help You

Sometimes in life you just have to ask for help, whether it is from a family member, a friend, a work colleague, a boss, sometimes you’ve got to just ask and I am sure, I am absolutely sure help will be offered.

You see, people want to help other people, if they can, they usually will.  If someone came to me for help and if I could help them in some way, I surely would, I wouldn’t even think about it, I would just say, “Yes, I will help you”.

I like to help, I like helping other people.

So, if you feel you need a little help in life, just ask for it, I am sure 99% of the time the person you are asking will say yes and will help you in anyway they can.

All you have to do is ask…..so just you pluck up the courage today and ask.

Clarabelle

 

Had Some Hard Knocks Lately?

Have you had some hard knocks lately? This poem below is for you:

Hard Knocks

Hard Knocks
Trouble and strife.
Broken hearts,
In this life.
Keep your spirit,
Higher than before.
No more whining,
There’s a world to explore.
Capture the essence,
Of beauty and shine.
Colourful magic,
Simply sublime.
The snow may fall,
On your road.
Covering your tracks,
Hiding the code.
But you are brave,
More than ever.
Never give up,
You’re strong forever.

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

Tune In

Tune into those happy feelings, tune in to the brightest and best version of you. Stay on that high frequency and watch yourself fly.

So I guess if you’re reading this today, you are already there, because I’m there with you, flying high.

Love, Clarabelle

Building Castles

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost, that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” Henry David Thoreau

What castles have you built for yourself? Keep on building.

A Life Worth Living

What’s a life worth living to you? What does it really mean to you in your heart of hearts?

Remember, you are in control of your life, you are always in control, so if that means you need to change direction then this you must do.

Do what you can to make your life, ” A life worth living”.

In a starry night.
I’m smiling,
As my dreams come true.
I’m here,
Always believing in you.

Touched by Emotion

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.

Happy Boxing Day Dreams to YOU.
