Perfect Fit

Sometimes you just come across work out there that is a perfect fit for you at this moment in time and when that does happen it feels so wonderful inside. I urge you to seek the perfect work that fits your circumstances right now, believe me, you will enjoy it so much more than the ultimate dream job at the wrong time or worse still that high flying job that gives you no rest and no life outside of work.

Think about it, think about securing the perfect fit for you and your life right now and enjoy the journey.

Much love to you, Clarabelle

Inspiration Will Find You

Inspiration will find you when you’re ready to be inspired, just like the famous phrase, when the student is ready the teacher will appear. An inspired heart has the power to breakthrough almost any barrier. Are you ready to be inspired?….I guess you are because you’re here, thank you.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

Festival of Faith

Have faith, strong,strong faith that your dreams are here, feel them in your heart right now and rejoice in your festival of faith. A poetic verse for you today:

A Festival of Faith

A festival of faith,
Lives in me.
In gives me hope,
So I can be.
Everything I want,
And even some more.
Believing in the “yes”,
And an opened door.
It encourages my soul,
Breathing life into me,
An explosion of knowing,
That no eyes can see.
A feeling from within,
A heart with a spark,
Igniting my spirit,
Shining light in the dark.

Hope Sets You Free

Don’t be a prisoner of your own mind, don’t tighten the straight jacket with unfulfilling whispers. Remember this my friend, hope sets you free. A poem about hope for you:

Hope Sets You Free

Hope is taking a chance,
A last look glance.
A hand held tight,
When nothing seems right.
Eyes with a soul,
Tunnel towards the goal.
A prayer at the start,
A loving heart.
It is the fire,
Lighting the desire.
A candle in rhyme,
Flickering through time.
Let hope be your key,
Hope sets you free.

The Angel of Hope is in your heart, welcome her today with open arms.

Love Clarabelle.

What Do You Miss Doing?

I miss my music, I miss music in my life……I haven’t picked up the microphone for a little while and I feel it is calling for me, I have a pull feeling towards it. So why is this?

I truly believe that things in life that are part of who we are will always return, just like a wonderful whizzing boomerang, it comes straight back to you.

What do you miss doing in your life? ….And better still, what are you going to do about it? 🙂

I know what I am going to do……sing, tra lah lah lah lah.

My whispers sing to your heart today,

Much love, Clarabelle

So Happy

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

Keep on Jumping

Catch the ball of life, keep on jumping until all your goals have been achieved.

Who do you want to be? What do you want to become? What’s important for you to do to move forward and reach new heights.

Keep on jumping my friends.

Love Clarabelle

Solution Focused

Trust in your heart

When you think of a problem you have in your life, don’t just focus on the problem and allow it snowball out of proportion, think of all the possible solutions you have to that problem.  Train your mind to become solution focused rather than problem focused and act upon your chosen solution.

There are many solutions to any given problem and the key is to focus on the solution, think about all your options and choose the best option for you going forward.

This evening, that is what I am just going to do, I have a couple of challenges that I want to overcome and I am going to sit down with a pen and paper on focus on the solution.  So why don’t you follow me in my footsteps and take action on it today, become a solution focused person and I am sure yourrlife will turn around for the better – just you wait and see.

Lots of love to you today and always, Clarabelle

 

 

4th of July Poem

4th of July

Here’s a 4th of July poem for you:

4th of July Poem

Her independence,
sets her free,
Happy spirited,
that is she.
Clouds pass by,
like her thoughts.
Windswept hair,
tied in knots.

Fireworks,
light her soul.
Angels dance,
she feels whole.
Born on this day,
high as a kite.
4th of July,
Is in full flight.

Turning Dreams into Reality

Live Gig

I haven’t produced a blog post for over a week, it’s been so busy with my live Gig etc.. last week and my move to Dubai at the end of this month.

I just wanted to share with you one of my videos from my live Gig last Saturday in my home village of Carfin, 3 May 2014.  We had such a successful evening and the event was filled with lots of love and beautiful community spirit – it was so lovely to be part of.

The video that I share with you below is my original song, “I Am Here” which I created in May 2013 and I share with you, at the beginning of this video ,who it is dedicated to.

In under a year I turned my dreams into reality and I now hold those special memories of last Saturday’s Gig alive in my heart forever.

What would you like to be doing one year from now?……I encourage you to GO FOR IT!!

Lost Love and Gain

Clarabelle Photography and Quotes, The light is love

Poetic Mood

I’m in a poetic mood this morning, I say this morning because I haven’t went to sleep yet and it’s way past 1am, so I figured a good time to write a blog post for you to read when you wake up.  What’s this poem about?  Well I don’t really know, these words just came to mind, they just flowed out of my heart for you.  Wishing you a beautiful day today, love to you Clarabelle.

Lost Love and Gain

And all this time,
through all the pain.
She looks behind,
lost love and gain.

Happy pictures,
saddened faces.
Missed moments,
empty places.

But in her heart,
a fire does burn.
A light of hope,
a freedom u-turn.

Her peaceful mind,
simmers in the sun.
Fresh air on her face.
her dreams have begun.

Going Live

So I woke up this morning very happy indeed because I am so very excited about my Singer-Songwriter Showcase that is happening this Saturday night.  We are expecting over 100 people on the night and it’s going to be a really great show.  We have been practising for weeks and weeks and this Saturday we will be putting all the preparation and practice to test – yes, we’re going live and it is very exciting indeed.

The event will have a real family/friendly feel to it and will be filled with joyous Community Spirit, that is what I want and what we have been aiming for!!  I’m going back to the Village of Carfin where I was brought up in as a child – a Village that has a very special place in my heart.

I will take lots of photos and share them with you on this Blog next week.

It’s quite funny because last year at this time I hadn’t even written one song and now I’m performing my own songs at my own Gig – it’s amazing what you can achieve when you put your mind to it!!

Question

What would you like your life to be like, one year from now?

It could all start here for you, maybe you were meant to read this blog post, maybe just maybe this blog post is for YOU, to get YOU started on fulfilling your own dreams and goals in life.  I’m doing it, why not YOU too. 🙂

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

On this journey of life….

beach and birds

Poetic reflections on the journey of life…..

On This Journey of Life

On this journey of life,
there are twists and turns.
Happy moments,
as the candle burns.
The sweetest temptation,
and all that’s good.
Sunshine and sunsets,
and delicious food.
On this journey of life,
there is also some sad.
Lots of good,
can turn to bad.
Tears may fall,
on sleepless nights.
Friends disagree,
and there’s family fights.
On this journey of life,
you get one shot.
You live it your way,
or give away a lot.
You can be kind.
and share your heart.
Love may last forever,
or tear apart.
On this journey of life,
I want you to know.
I want you to shine,
and abundantly grow.
I want you to be,
all that you can.
That strong Superwoman,
or courageous Superman.

Dreams Can Come True

Clarabelle Heart's Apart

Happy Tear

I held it in my hands yesterday and I shed a wee happy tear…….what did I hold?  I held my CD, my EP, Hearts Apart which contains 4 of my original songs.  I feel very proud and emotional at the same time….has it been easy, “No” but it was worth it!!  That feeling I felt yesterday was one of the best feelings ever….the realisation that you can really make your dreams come true if you have a enough passion, faith, heart, self-belief, determination, focus and self-discipline to do so.  Sometimes you have to make real sacrifices to get hold of your dreams and you have to rearrange your life a little bit or a lot in order to get there.  I’ve kept my “eye on the ball” with this one and I’m not letting go now.  Yes there will be more tough challenges ahead, I know this, but I am strong and I am getting stronger everyday.

The Roots

I focused on the roots of this dream, the roots being “me” and my mind.  I took control of my own mind……I didn’t let it waiver and when it tried to, well I had a motivational process in place to deal with that.  Things aren’t perfect for me right now and I’m not really sure they are for anybody in this world but I can honestly say that the very gradual transition from Professional Executive Coach to successful Singer-Songwriter has overall been a happy occasion for me.

So Grateful

“The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best, therefore it tends to become the best.”  (Wallace D. Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich)

I think one thing that has really helped me stay grounded and joyous in the moment, is the daily gratitude I have for everything in my life.  I am honestly so grateful for everything I have……thank YOU love and thank YOU life.  I would also like to say a massive thank you to YOU for being here and joining me on this journey…..I want YOU to have everything you’ve ever dreamed of in life….I want you to be so happy too.

Wishing you a very beautiful day today….go in the direction of your dreams but focus on the roots and the best fruits will grow.  Love Clarabelle.

Who is She?…. She is me!!

Be Brave

Sometimes you just have to be brave in the darkest night…..when challenges keep coming….this is your time to be strong, this is your opportunity to shine.  I wrote this poem (below) a few weeks ago…..reflecting, thinking…..putting my self-belief to the test.  I can do it, YOU can do it, WE WILL DO IT!! Here is an original poem from me to YOU.  Just believe……BELIEVE IN YOU.

Clarabelle Photo Shoot

Who is She?….She is me!!

Sometimes she’s scared,
in the darkest night.
Trembling for hope,
seeking the light.

Questions run riot,
in her mind.
What is she doing?
What will she find?

I think I know her,
I’ve felt her before.
Wrapped in the secrets,
She don’t dare explore.

But I see she is brave,
fighting her war.
Doing her own thing,
What’s it all for?

Her spirit is high,
unusually so.
Because she wins every battle,
Tough tests when she’s low.

I see she is grateful,
in the now.
When all seems lost,
she doesn’t ask how.

For her desires are stronger,
than the fear she feels.
She knows she can win,
positive belief heals.

So she shares her story,
because all can relate.
She frees her happy spirit,
and dances through the gate.

Perfection is in the Imperfections

Photography by Clarabelle 2013

This poem was inspired by my previous post, “What is Perfection?”, and I just had to share it with you.

Perfection is in the Imperfections   

There is a perfection,
that will never stay true.
The perfection in your mind,
stopping you.
The word perfection,
has a flaw.
Perfection is in the imperfections,
this is my law.
When you believe this,
you can start where you are.
Then you’ll make progress,
then you’ll go far.
So eliminate perfection,
from your life right now.
Keep going, stay strong,
Imperfections are WOW!!

What is Perfection?

best days

Life is not Perfect

Sometimes we can all be our own worse critic, saying things like “I can’t do this because it’s not perfect.”  Life is not perfect, nothing is and if you honestly think you have to wait and get going until everything is perfect, then you might have to wait a very long time……then, my friend, you may have missed the boat!!

Progress

I have said this before on this blog and I will say it again, “perfection is in the imperfections”, just like “beauty is in the eye of beholder”.  Please don’t put your life on “hold” because things aren’t “perfect” right now, think of baby steps towards progress.

If I had waited….

If I had waited to start this Clarabelle Blog until everything was perfect in my life and in my posts and poetry, I would never have started it and you wouldn’t be here, reading this right now.  🙂  If I had waited to release my own songs until everything was perfect then you wouldn’t have the opportunity to listen to them right now.  I heard someone say the other day that it can take the best part of 20 years to master something, wow 20 years is a long time, I can’t wait that long, can you?

Start NOW

Start where you are, NOW, hold that vision in your head and do something everyday to move you closer to your goal.  It’s amazing the new people and opportunities that cross your path when you just decide to, go for it.

I love this motivational video, below, which I came across on Youtube yesterday, the words ring very true for me and it is worth the 7 minutes to listen to it and be inspired.

Keep it real, keep it true to your heart and believe that you WILL do this.

Have a super inspiring day my lovely friends and thank you for being here.

Love Clarabelle

Courage and Strength

The Truth of Your Heart

Expect the unexpected in life, it can shoot you down and leave you in the gutter of despair. I want to tell you something, because I’ve been there and there is always hope, there is always faith and I want you to believe that if you’re feeling like that right now, hold onto the truth of your heart.  Work on improving the most important relationship in your life first and that is the relationship with yourself – be your own best friend.  I like to pray when I’m feeling like this, so I made up this prayer to share with you in the hope that it may help you during tough times.  Prayer truly works for me, I believe and know this and I hope that it works for you too.  Lots of love to you today and always, Clarabelle.

Prayer of Courage of Strength

Dear God,

I say this prayer, from the bottom of my heart.
And I ask you to help me to stay strong in this time of need.
Please help me to overcome these difficult challenges,
And become a better person from the lessons therein.
Help me to build a loving and empowering relationship with myself,
So that I can turn my life around for the better.
Give me the courage and strength to forgive and to be forgiven.
Let me see the open door in the darkest night
Let my heart grow with true love, faith and hope.
And may my inner light shine and guide me to all good.
I pray that I raise my self belief in my own capabilities and potential.
And may this lead me into a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.
Thank you for answering my prayer.

I’ll do it tomorrow!!

comfort-zone-quote1.jpg

“I’ll do it tomorrow”

“I’ll do it tomorrow”, I hear you say……not that I wish you any heartache or misfortune because that is absolutely NOT the point here, but what if tomorrow didn’t come…..what if you were beamed up into a strange distant land today and never had the opportunity to come back to earth again.  I would miss you, other people would miss you and who and what would you miss?

Do what you feel.

We often go through life thinking “I would like to do that” but more often than not, we don’t do anything about it or we’ll say “it can wait”.  Don’t over think things, just do, do what you feel, right then, right there in that moment, because as soon as you starting thinking too much, before you know it, you’ve changed your mind and maybe you’ve missed out on the greatest moment of your life, like telling someone “I love you”, you should never think too much about that one.

The Last Day of this Year

Please use the last day of this year wisely, let it end with a special loving memory that will live in your heart forever.  Do what you need to do, do what you want to do, do that one thing you’ve always desired to do, make a commitment right now to do it…..don’t say “I’ll do it tomorrow”, just do now.

Make this day special, make this day great and please tell me all about it.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

Poetry: Green is for Go

Poetry:  Green is for Go

I enjoy creating these video poems for you, I feel they bring out the best in the poems and makes them come alive. The video poem below is called “Green is for Go“, I do hope you like it and that you have a green light day today.  Love, Clarabelle

Green is for Go

Green is for go, I see it everywhere,

Moving me forward, it’s so special and rare.

The key to the door, the answer to my prayers,

The blossoming of the flower, uncovering deep layers.

The sparkle in the sky, the smile on the street,

An abundance of joy, dancing in my feet.

The seasons have changed, a new freshness is in the air,

Autumn leaves fall, and softly touch my hair.

I’m switched on to life, glowing at night,

Such a beautiful opening, I’m now in full flight.

“Yes, I Can Do This”

Clarabelle Photography and Quotes

Life can go so swimmingly well and then crash, down comes the biggest wave you’ve ever seen, you didn’t expect that one and it takes the wind out of your sails.  But hey, this is what you’ve got to do, you’ve got to get back up again, get back on track, baby step after baby step and when you look back, you will have surely come along way.  This next poem is inspired by just that.  Say “Yes, I Can Do This”.

“Yes, I Can Do This”

You’ve got to push yourself,
as much as you can.
Even though you don’t feel it,
it’s a sure good plan.

No lying on the couch,
thinking so low.
You’ve got to get up,
no matter how slow.

The mind sees red,
and gets tangled inside.
To loosen the knots,
get out, don’t hide.

I know it’s hard,
I know it’s tough.
It’s the last thing you want,
when feeling rough.

But you’ve got to move,
you’ve got to believe.
Don’t waste your talents,
You’ve so much to achieve.

Look in the mirror,
and shout out loud,
“Yes, I can do this”
Shout it loud and proud.

I’m Flying Without Wings

Here is a video poem by me, entitled “I’m Flying Without Wings”, I hope you like it. Wishing you a beautiful day today, lots of love Clarabelle.

I’m Flying Without Wings

Life is good you know,
my spirit is alive.
Being just myself,
like a bumble bee in its hive.

Focus is so strong,
and grows deeper day by day.
The world around me is changing,
I’m living well this way.

Creative imaginations,
are like flowers in the spring.
Their beauty is forever abundant,
I’m flying without wings.

The Courage Living in You

This is the second of the poems that I wrote last Friday, it is a poem about being strong, having courage and knowing that YOU really do make a difference in this world.  I hope you like it and please share it with the people you love.  Clarabelle 🙂

The Courage Living in You

Sometimes you may not always, get it right,
Sometimes you can’t, sleep at night.
Sometimes the thunder, drowns out your prayer,
Sometimes you’re lonely, when no one is there.

But a lot of times your smile, is brighter that the sun,
A lot of times you skip, no need to run.
A lot of times your happiness, cheers up a friend,
A lot of times your heart, reaches the rainbow’s end.

So when life gets you down, as it sometimes will,
When the frosty ice, is making you chill.

Remember the love, warming you up,
Remember the joy, filling your cup.
Remember you are strong, nothing can break you,
Remember the courage, living in what you do.

It’s so easy to forget, the difference you make,
It’s so easy to give, and never take.
But I want you to know, that I am here,
Always for you, bringing you cheer.

My smile is for you, my hand yours to hold,
Melting the ice, in the bitter cold.
A friend is in me, a friend is in you,
Together we’re stronger, this is so true.

Love is a force…..

“Love is a force more formidable than any other.  It is invisible – it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.” Barbara de Angelis

love
Where are you inspiration?
I searched and searched you know, looking for that one piece of inspiration, that one trigger, that sentiment of hope that would help me to turn my life around.  I searched long and hard, night and day……..I struggled to find it.  Where are you inspiration, when I need you the most, where are you to help me get back up again?  And the search continued…….


So, where do you go from here?

Now, I know the answer, but at that difficult time, there was no way I was going to find it, because there was too much noise, too much desperation, too much struggle, not enough head space, not enough belief, not enough faith, focus on pain and negativity….how was I going to find inspiration amongst all that? Just like finding a needle in a haystack, I was unaware at the time, but I had given myself such a mammoth task.  So where do you go from here?  When you feel you’ve hit rock bottom and the punches keep coming, the waves get bigger and bigger and you forget how to swim….what happens next?

Yes, it does have a happy ending.

I’ll tell you what happens next, you sleep, long deep sleeps, it helps you to forget, it allows you to avoid your own perception of reality when you sleep, and when you wake up, you want to sleep again.  To be alone is your saving grace, or at least that’s what you think….but being alone too long can be dangerous, because you get swamped in the quicksand of fear.  I have stopped writing right now, because it is making me cry, taking me back to those dreadful feelings…but only for a short, sharp moment, because I am better now and I am telling the survival story – yes, it does have a happy endingYes, yes, YES.

Miss Positivity
Would you believe me if I said, going into this downward spiral, that my mind was strong and my attitude was positive….I honestly believe it was, but even for Miss Positivity the cracks did show.  Up, down, up, down, down, down, up, up, down, up…..I was a seesaw of emotions in action…sometimes good, often not so good.   For every positive thought I tried to focus on, in flowed a river of negative thoughts……I knew it wasn’t good, I knew I had to do something, anything as I cried out for help at night…. my pillow drenched with tears.


Explorer of the courageous soul

Let me fast forward for a moment, today I am in such a good place, the best I have ever felt for such a long time, even when I thought I was at my happiest, possibly in 2007, I am aware now that it was all external happiness, this time it’s different, this time it is internal,  my happiness is coming from within………….and the irony is, that I would never have discovered that place, if I had given up at the toughest of times.  You see I am a fighter, ‘never die’ kind of person, if there was a glimmer of hope, I was surely going to find it.  This to me was the ‘battle of the brave’, ‘the explorer of the courageous soul’, ‘the underdog who discovered paradise’, ‘the barefooted soldier coming out from the trenches’, ‘the white flag surrendering my heart to the universe’, ‘the first baby step of a journey that never ends’…..there is no destination… just creative imagination and infinite expression of the true self.  And so the story continues…..

This is only temporary

To combat the bruises of stress, there were many things that helped me on my way, daily gratitude, forcing myself to spend time with family and friends, daily exercise, daily meditation, daily prayer for self and for others, good nutrition, acceptance of the situation, learning to face up to my fears, letting go of the emotions that were not serving me well, continuously asking myself questions until the right ones connected with me, painting a picture of my future dreams in alignment with my core values, nurturing my inner belief and self confidence, being honest with myself, allowing myself to be vulnerable,  giving myself permission to forgive, believing that I could change the current situation, telling myself “this is only temporary”, building up trust in myself and regaining the faith that I knew was always there, identifying my strengths, surrounding myself with anything and everything inspirational, telling myself “keep going, keep going”…….

Forever Inspiring

But most of all, MOST of all, the turning point….the tipping point….the true trigger point…. was believing that I am truly loved, knowing that I was on the path to love, knowing that I was and am love and ultimately the giver of love.  Love redeems all, there is nothing more powerful than love, nothing else will reach that sweet spot like genuine love for self and others.  Love was the answer, love is the answer, love was and is the ultimate trigger of transformation and transcendence into who I am today, me with no role, no identity, no ego, just me…that is the place, that is forever inspiring, that is paradise and me.

I Am A Survivor

Clarabelle Quotes

Beautiful Energy

You are strong, so very very strong, no matter what troubles you face each day, you will always come out stronger in the end.  You have everything you need right now to win every battle that comes your way.  Your armour is your loving heart, abundant soul, happy spirit and the truth and wisdom of your beautiful mind.  This next poem is for you, because you are a survivor and I am a survivor and together we will conquer the storms of today and the mysteries of tomorrow, to illuminate the wonders in our heart.  Thank you my friends for being here and bringing your beautiful energy into my path.  Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

I Am A Survivor 

I am a survivor, strong and pure
Fighting many battles, this is for sure
A warrior of the night, catching dreams in my soul
Holding on tight, until I reach the goal

I am a  survivor, nothing stops me
I strive for the best, I am what I want to be
I challenge the past, you don’t live here anymore
When negativity comes knocking, I don’t open the door

I am a survivor, hear my calling
I’m alive and kicking, never falling
My spirit is happy, I breathe life into me
Shining and sparkling, like ice on the sea

I am a survivor, my heart is so full
With love and abundance, this is my pull
I glide in the now, I dance on the waves
I see beauty around me, an energy haze

I am survivor, and so are YOU
Believe in yourself, and all you do
You are a survivor, you are the one
You are amazing, brighter than the sun

Guest Post of the Month – Linda Smith

Poetry from the Heart

It is my pleasure to introduce you to a wonderfully talented young lady, Linda Smith.  Linda is such a positively inspiring person and I have known her from my childhood.  She writes beautiful poetry from the heart and one of her poems is shared with you below.

Linda Smith
Beautiful Poet, Linda Smith

Introduction by Linda

Hi my name is Linda Smith and I like to write about things which inspire me, and all my writing comes from the heart. My whole outlook on life changed after my battle with anorexia. It taught me that life is priceless and should be treated as such. My philosophy is ‘You only get one shot at life, so live it to the max.’

I have a beautiful family, 2 girls, who mean the world to me and whom help, and support me with everything I do and without them I would be completely lost. I work with children and it is a wonderful job because of the innocence which they possess.

As well as writing poetry, and verses, I love to go to the gym because while I’m working out I get time with my thoughts. I love to smile, and make other people smile to because it costs nothing to make someone feel good just with smiling at them.

A Heart Full of Happiness

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

I’ve had my troubles and problems alike,
But I know that someone is there like a light,
Switching my sense on and telling me why,
I shouldn’t get down, upset or cry, because.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

I’m thankful for all the chances I’ve been given,
For everyone who has been there, including those now in heaven,
Life is for living, not for dwelling,
We only get one shot so make it worth telling.

I look around to see where I am, not my area but my life…..you understand,
I ponder over it and think to myself,
I’ve achieved what I want to and still have plans,
My family and friends I love with all my heart.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

So the next time I think of complaining,
I’ll stop and wonder why I’m havering,
Because people out there are worse of than me,
These people need help, support and to cry a new tear,
But me, hey, my life’s not perfect,
But I’ve got what I want, who I need, and a bundle of love, so.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

Motivational Speech – “BEST EVER YOU”

I wrote this motivational and inspirational speech from deep within my heart and soul for YOU yesterday and I recorded it on Youtube this morning.  I do hope this inspires you to be the BEST EVER YOU.  Love Clarabelle

BEST EVER YOU

Who Am I? I am a woman, a person with a heart, a loving heart, a soul, a singing soul, a spirit, a happy spirit.  I have dreams, great, great, dreams.  I have plans, big, big, plans.  I have faith, strong faith in the mystery of the unknown and I BELIEVE.

I believe with every part of my being that only magnificence lies before me.  I have a unique power that goes beyond the impossible.  I have an energy that attracts true abundance to me.  I am alive and I am grateful for all that I am and for all that I am becoming.

I can create magic around me because I breathe and do with passion, every baby step that I take on this journey of life.

The miracle of all miracles is in me and in every path I come across.  Every heart that I touch, every soul that I inspire, every star that I catch and every rainbow that protects me from the storms.

I am at one with me, in the silence of all silences my spirit shines and my light guides me out of the darkness.

I fly, I soar, I reach for the mountain top and when I get there, I see far in the distance another higher mountain to climb.  But it is in the challenge of every challenge to only ever reach the top.  The top is never ending, the beginning is never new, life is, what it is.

Life is how you see it. 

Life is how you live it. 

Life is how you love it.

There is freedom, there is abundance, there is everything you need and want before you.  You can’t see it with your eyes, you can’t touch it with your hands but it is living, breathing and dancing around you.  This invisible space is your space, your space to fill with smiles, laughter, love, joy and happiness.  Nourish the space around you by nourishing peace from within, because even in stormy weathers you can find a calm place.

So go to the edge of the mountain top because it is waiting for you with open arms.  Other travellers want to hear your story, want to learn from your experiences, good or bad.  They want to know, what you know, to help them on their own journey of life.

Then you must find a quiet spot and listen to the sound of the wind, whispers of the greatest knowledge will come to you and you will use this wisdom to carry on.

Yes you may feel broken right now.

Yes you may have cried enough tears to fill a river.

Yes you may feel like a failure and all your self-worth and self-confidence has gone.

But I want to tell you something. It’s still there you know.  The best part of you is still living in you. You still have that spark. You still shine.  You are loved deeply and your heart knows this.

The mind can play games with our feelings, but the mind has no hold over the power of the heart.  Close your eyes, feel your heart, feel its energy, feel its power, let it grow inside of you.

You are very special and you can and will do this. You will turn your life around for the better.

This is the moment that counts, this is when you decide enough is enough.  This is when you say “I am strong, I am better than that and I believe in me and my potential.  I am whatever I choose to be and I choose to be what I believe in my heart.  I am my greatest dreams, I am.”

Never settle for too little because you have such a lot and to not unleash your true talents into this world would surely keep you from the wisdom that is truly yours.

Trust in you, trust in your abilities, trust that everyone is asking similar questions and this is your time to fight back.  This is your time to answer with your heart.  This is your life, to love, to live, to learn and to lead.  Capture that feeling in your heart right now, let it flow through every vein in your body, let it illuminate you with drive, determination and self-discipline, now mix it with passion and purpose and you’re on your way.

You are free now, free to make the right choices and decisions in life that will make you the BEST EVER YOU.  Your new life awaits – make every moment count and GO GET IT, because nobody deserves it more than you.  You have all the qualities within you to make it.  Thrive, grow and shine NOW and FOREVER.

I Am The Greatest

Greatest Songwriter

Just Believe

Sometimes you just have to believe that YOU are the greatest, you have to believe in yourself, you have to believe in your abilities, you have to believe that you are capable of achieving so much more.  You have so much potential, there is so much more of you to unleash, so much more of you to share with the world.  Now I want you to hold onto that thought and I want you to flip an imaginary switch and when you do, you 100% believe in you, now watch what you are doing, look at who you are talking to, What changes are you making in your life? What are you doing differently?  Just believe, just believe, just believe in YOU.  I wrote the lyrics, “I Am The Greatest” (see below) last month because I was strongly visualising myself being the greatest songwriter of all time and then I wrote it down (picture above).

Vision

I believe, I have faith in the unknown and I know the Universe is working in my favour and bringing it to me.  I made the decision, I made the commitment and I acted upon it, I now treasure every person and thing that I attract into my life that moves me closer to my vision.

YOU

Now I want you to believe in you, believe in it all, believe and have faith in the mystery of the unknown, that once you commit to doing something, once you commit to achieving that goal, it’s going to happen for you, sooner or later it is going to happen for you.  You are the greatest and I want you to believe that.

Below are the lyrics to my song, “I Am The Greatest”, this will be released as part of my Album, “The Becoming of Me”, I think the melody that goes with this song is really great, it is really uplifting and empowering, definitely a song to be listened to first thing in the morning or when you are feeling down and want a little boost, the song will definitely do that for you.

“I Am The Greatest” by Clarabelle created on 22 July 2013

Verse 1

You’ve gotta put the hard work in
And let your mind know
In order to catch the falling star
You’ve gotta move and go
Time it will not wait for you
Life moves very fast
So step it up, get going
Live it up, get showing
Say  I Am

Chorus

I am the greatest
I’ve changed my ways
I’ve reached the rainbow
Happy sunny days
For I am the greatest
So watch me fly
I am the greatest
This is why

Verse 2

Times are tough I know sometimes
Keep going until the end
To reach the top you have to go
Be real do not pretend
You can be the champion
You can have it all
So live it up, get moving
Play the game, get grooving
Say  I Am

Bridge

I feel my heart
I feel my soul
In changing moments
This I know

Chorus

I am the greatest
I’ve changed my ways
I’ve reached the rainbow
Happy sunny days
For I am the greatest
So watch me fly
I am the greatest
This is why
This is why
I will fly

I want you to fly today, I’ll be watching you, love Clarabelle

Top Ten Bucket List Poem

Since I turned 40 a few weeks ago I have been thinking about creating my very own bucket list but the more I think about it, I feel what is most important to me, is what these experiences give me.  So I thought about it a little bit more, as I always do and I came up with the following Top Ten Bucket List poem.  I hope you like it.  May all your dreams come true and fulfill you in such a meaningful and purposeful way, love Clarabelle

Top Ten Bucket List

In my bucket list of life
I will take these things
First is love and the joy it brings
Second is faith into the light
Third is truth shining bright
Fourth is beauty from inside it glows
Fifth is gratitude where magic grows
Sixth is kindness because I like to give
Seventh is freedom of choice to live
Eighth is wisdom to give me trust
Ninth is patience, this is a must
Tenth is happiness, fulfillment too
My top ten bucket list, I shall do

Time stands still for no one, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock….second after second life goes by, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, there goes another moment.   STOP!!!  THINK!!  and ask yourself this question, “What are YOU going to do?”  Remember it’s still ticking, every breath you take, every blink of an eye, the second hand on the clock goes round.  ACT!! Just do what you need to do to challenge yourself and make your life better today.  Be brave, be bold, step out of your comfort zone and just you GO FOR IT!!  I know I am.  This next poem is for you my lovely friends, I hope you make each moment count today.  Lots of love to you Clarabelle.

Face the Music

I hear it play
I know its sound
From up above
And underground
I feel it move
Shift a beat
I feel its presence
Dancing in my feet
The candle burns
The clock ticks by
Around it goes
Flying high
Face the music
See its light
It is with you
Burning bright
This is your time
Know this and more
Building bridges
A new path to explore
There’s no straight line
No end, no beginning
There is only love
Your heart is winning

A New Hello

goodbye hello quotes

A New Hello

She said her last goodbye
Not a tear she did cry
For she knows, the time is right
A better future, a star so bright
Footprints in her heart, pave the way
A blessed tomorrow, is cherished today
And forever in her soul she holds
Secret whispers, painted gold
The sound is clear, reflective and true
Mystery is beyond, the sky so blue
The happy sun, makes her glow
Goodbye friends,  she has a new hello

In the Heat of the Night

stars

Sometimes we all need a little bit of motivation to help us see through the day, when times are tough, sometimes you can be uplifted by hearing the right words.  I wrote this song last week which is all about being in “Yes You Can” mode and funnily enough I called it “Yes You Can” I have created the melody and just need to work on the backing track and getting it recorded but I thought I would share the words here with you today.  Wishing you a day filled with positive self belief, because “YES YOU CAN”.  Love Clarabelle

Yes You Can

Verse 1

You may not win them all
But you can win the fight
You won’t win all hearts
In the heat of the night
But protect what you’ve got
Cos you’ve got such a lot
Feel in your soul
The mountain top goal

Chorus

Yes you can
Yes you can
And you will
Get up that hill
And you will fly
Across the sky
And you will soar
Let your spirit roar
Oh yes you can

Verse 2

You may want to let go
But believe in your heart
You should never feel low
Don’t let dreams fall apart
So protect all of you
Cos you’re human too
Experience life
Forget trouble strife

Chorus

Yes you can
Yes you can
And you will
Get up that hill
And you will fly
Across the sky
And you will soar
Let your spirit roar
Oh yes you can

Bridge

Keep your dreams alive
For you are oh so special
Let your happy spirit thrive
Have strength and be strong
This is where your heart belongs

Chorus (to fade)

Yes you can
Yes you can
And you will
Get up that hill
And you will fly
Across the sky
And you will soar
Let your spirit roar
Oh yes you can

After working with a number of clients recently who wanted to overcome challenges that were essentially related to past experiences that had resulted in limiting belief patterns and self abandonment, Amy felt inspired to write the following poem along the lines of facing ones fears and realising that we are our own best friend.

Best Friend

I’ll stay with you now
I won’t leave your side
Nowhere to run
Nothing to hide
Catching the moment
Slowing down time
I’m all alone
These emotions are mine
Drying the river
Turning the tide
Breaking the chains
So these worlds can collide
As we hold on so tightly
To illusions gone by
But Live for today
With no worry or sigh
Stay with me now
Cause there’s nowhere to go
Play the best friend, lover or foe
Jester magician
With all tricks of the trade
Hold on to him tightly
till he starts to fade
Oh mirror mirror
what do you show
I see what I want
I don’t know if you know
Make an impression
lets make it the last
Tie to the sail
And stick to the mast
The question’s the answer
The start is the end
You won’t fool yourself
But it’s fun to pretend
Stay in your shoes
Don’t leave your canoe
Create the next step
You know you can choose
Like ships on the ocean
Thieves in the night
Silent and strong
Set sail for the light

Don’t Let Life Pass You By

cherry blossom tree

Don’t let life pass you by, do all you can to make it a great life, think about who or what inspires your soul, what connects your spirit to another dimension, what gives you that feeling of excitement inside……..hold on to that thought, embrace that special feeling because that’s who you are, that’s what makes you YOU.

There is a special something inside of you, a precious gift that is waiting to be unwrapped, unfold it gently and release its magic into the Universe.  I see it now, I see you sparkling and glistening, touching other happy spirits and uplifting the temporary broken ones.

Close your eyes right now, feel that special gift inside of you, let this unique feeling penetrate every part of your being, let it flow, let it out, let it dance with the stars under the moonlit sky……your light is special, like no other light, let it glow.

I know you are smiling now, you feel it, you believe it, now let the people of this world welcome it with open arms.

May you have a truly magical weekend, only you can make it magical, do it and don’t let life pass you by.  

Thank you Universe for making this a truly MAGICAL weekend for me and for you.

Much love to you today, as always,  Clarabelle

Take on the Impossible!!

A little bit of inspiration goes a long long way.  I came across this YouTube video a few weeks back, you may already have seen it but I feel I just had to share it on here, it is very empowering indeed.  Arthur in the video is such a true inspiration to each and everyone of us, may his story inspire you to take on what others see as the “impossible”.

Much love to you in this very moment, we all need a little bit of love to come our way, Clarabelle.

Have a serious chat with yourself!!

Beautiful sunset

I am having a serious chat with myself today, I have the energy and enthusiasm to really move forward in life, to achieve all that I want to achieve, to embrace life and all its challenges and to breathe in the most beautiful view from the top of the highest mountain.

The conversation I am having with myself today is this:

Out with the old and make room for the new, this is a MUST for me, old everything is going, I have to make room for the new, it needs the space to thrive, it needs space to breathe and it needs me to create the space for it.  This new energy will bring an abundance of everything I’ve ever wanted and I know NOW is the time to make room for it.  I need to get out of my own way and just do it.  This is serious stuff, this is MY LIFE, there is no going back, there is only right now and the dreams that I hold in my heart.  I will make this change for myself, I will clear out ALL of the old and welcome the new with true love, open arms and a warm smile.

YOU

I sincerely challenge you today, to have a serious conversation with yourself:

What do you need to do?
What do you need to commit to?
What fears do you have to face that are holding you back?

Now is the time, this moment is all we have, DO IT FOR YOU, it’s your life GO GET IT!!

Wishing you a beautiful day today filled with committed action and inspiration that will live in your heart forever.  Lots of love, Clarabelle

Someone is thinking of you right now…Who?

Magic tree

Pass on the Learnings

We all have tough days, we all have hard times, we all suffer deep sadness and heartache.  I believe one day, very soon, you will look back at this moment and realise that the poem below holds many truths.  You will silently smile, pass on the learnings and hold your dreams in your arms.  Maybe, just maybe, you needed to hear this today, remember you are loved, very very much and someone is thinking of you right now, because they love you with the most deepest unconditional love.  Treasure that thought, hold it in your heart and let it bring true light into the darkness.  Your spirit is sparkling now, I see it, I feel it and I know you can too.  Much much love to you today as always, Clarabelle.

When the Rain Falls

You may feel pain today, it may be tough;

You may be worried today, weather is rough.

You may feel like crying, because you’re lonely inside;

You may feeling like dying, because your heart has lost pride.

But please believe me, for this one is true;

There is an abundance of love, surrounding you.

It is helping you release, all of that stress;

Building you from within, when life seems a mess.

Angels are dancing and holding you tight;

The sun is behind the clouds, shining on you bright,

When the rain falls, it is to refresh your soul;

It washes away the darkness, making you whole.

Right now you are loved, someone is thinking of you;

They hold you in their dreams and pray your wishes will come true.

To suffer in this moment, will not make you well;

Believe this message, like a magical spell.

May it awaken your spirits, turn your frown into a smile;

I am with you my friend, for forever and a while.

What is wisdom?

What is wisdom

Busy Lives

Wisdom is truth and we gain wisdom from being true to ourselves and listening to the whispers of our heart.  In our busy lives it is so easy to caught up in routine and rituals, we often don’t take the time out for ourselves and we can very easily allow that to happen too much, it can then create a build up of frustrations, stress, having the feeling of chasing our tail and ultimately never truly feeling free.

What Can You Influence?

Today I tempt you to take some precious time out for yourself and think about what is happening in your life right now that, A) is serving you well and B) is not serving you well – now focus on what needs to change for you, what can you influence to make things better for you?  The key thing here is to focus on what you can influence not what you are concerned about and have no control over.  If you have read the late Mr Stephen R. Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, you may be familiar with his principle of Circle of Concern -v- Circle of Influence….and if not, I would totally recommend you reading this.  It will really help you put your own life into a different perspective and help you to see the woods from the trees.

Set Yourself Free

You are wisdom and therefore YOU have the wisdom to set yourself free from anything that is not working for you right now and sometimes it takes pure silence for you to truly hear what is being said.  The real intelligence in you is bursting to get out, strip back the layers of your busy life and release it into the universe, for its energy will attract like energy and positive changes will happen.

In the stillness of the night my own wisdom talks, this is my midnight calling to you.  

Much love to you my friends, Clarabelle.

I Feel Change

I Feel Change

I feel there is change in the air and I mean fresh, purposeful, meaningful and positive change for me – I just feel it, I know it is coming, I know it and I can almost touch it!!

Where does this clear vision of change come from for me?

It comes from being on a spiritual journey, a path of natural healing, having faith and self belief, building momentum and having deep trust in the process.

How did this happen?

I made it happen, I wanted it to happen, I changed my daily habits, I changed my thinking, I worked on making me a better me, I opened my mind to a different kind of knowledge, I applied new learnings, I let my heart share its secrets and I have returned back to me, the true me that was always there but I had to find my own way of discovering it again and I did.

New Dreams

I now have new dreams, new plans, the deepest self love, genuine confidence in my unlimited potential and the courage to take on every challenge that dares to get in my way.  I am thankful for everything, my attitude of gratitude burns passionately in my soul and I feel inspired by the power of the universe to which I am in full alignment.

Yes YOU

I want to share something with all my blog followers and visitors, you have truly helped me, because you give me positive feedback and I know that I am making a difference, inspiring hearts and it has empowered me even more.  I am grateful for YOU, yes YOU reading this right now, I am so thankful for YOU and I am very blessed to have you in my life.

Embrace the Fullness of Life

I want you to feel in your heart right now the changes you want to make for yourself, see yourself in that place, envisage what it looks like right now when that change has happened for you.  Embrace the fullness of life living in that positive change, see the sun shining down upon you and feel the warmth of your awakened spirit flow through every cell of your body. Breathe in the magic of it all and dance to the happiness of the beautiful vibe surrounding you.  Now here comes a very important part –  draw it, photograph it, write it down, sing it, dance it…..create it – for everything is created twice, first in your imagination and then with your doing.  Let personal action be your best friend and hold hands together as you skip towards the fruits of your labour.  I know you are smiling now, I know you know you can make it happen for you, do something now that will move you closer to your goal.

I feel change, can you?

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

Re-invent Yourself

I met with a wonderfully inspirational man on Sunday afternoon for coffee in Glasgow City Centre, he is a Film Maker and creative writer.  We met for about 2 hours and within that space of time I felt so inspired by his words.  He is a “go-getter”, living his dream, he wakes up every morning feeling excited, he just loves life and you can feel the power of his light shining from within.  He spoke about “Chasing Happiness” and what that meant to him….I was truly blown away!!  There is one other phrase he said that particularly stuck with me and that was “re-invent yourself”…..I loved that, because in my mind it opens up a whole new world and “I am”.  This next poem is inspired by that meeting, I do hope you are inspired by it too, love Clarabelle.

Chasing Happiness

Chasing happiness, What does it mean?

A fulfilling life, living the dream.

Waking up excited, every day,

Smiling in each moment, happiness is the way.

It all starts with you, and what you believe,

Baby steps together, will help you achieve.

No goal is too big, no challenge to high,

Chasing happiness forever, go beyond the sky.

Following your passion

When we were kids, we used to enjoy every moment of our life. We were surrounded by ecstatic group, the group we were proud of and used to flaunt about with our family. We had no goal, no tensions, no work pressure apart from school homework and we never considered our life seriously. We weren’t serious about it. Those were halcyon days of our life.

Still we were passionate, energetic and full of motivation.

Where did we get the motivation from? What was the motivational factor? Who injected inspiration in us? What made us smile?

You guessed it right.

Friends!

Friends and friendship was our passion.

Follow Your Passion

We developed and weaved beautiful dreams in our mind like weaving colourful sweaters.

As we grew older and got to know about life and relationships, got to know about priorities and our life got diverted from personal life to the professional life. As priorities changed, our goals changed and it changed the source of motivation.

Guess what?

Our dreams got shattered like ruptured glass and we adopted the scenario which later changed our motivation and passion. When passion and motivation fade, confidence drops and seeds of frustration burst over.

Result is crystal clear. Depression crops up and we ruin our precious life.

Follow your passion midst reaction.

We must never ever end up our passion. Passion makes us. It gives intense happiness which no one can ever provide you. Rebuild your motivational factor and prepare goal. Get inspired from leaders who changed the world. Ignite the passion within you.

Passion within You

If you love singing or dancing, join some institution or organization where you can strengthen and prosper your talent.

Search out what makes you happy. Scratch the factor and do what you love to do.

Discover You

Rebuild your passion and make a way to achieve it. It not only blossoms you but also nurtures the society.

If you would like to check out Aviral’s blog, then please head over to cherrypositive for some more daily inspiration, you’ll be so glad you did.

Thank you Aviral for this wonderful post, Clarabelle.
