One Word

There is so much POWER in our words

What one word best describes you?

Is there actually one word that would encapsulate everything that you’re all about?

Look for your ‘one’ word – can you think of it?

Even under copious amounts of caffiene, I could not think of that ‘one’ word for myself. I don’t actually think that word exists – so maybe I have to create it!

You see, when I challenged you to think of that ‘one’ word, it immediately put limits on your thinking but our thinking needs to be limitless in order to engage and change worlds.

So let’s get a little creative here. I think my newly created ‘one’ word needs to be blended into something so magnificent, you’re never going to forget it.

A bit like the stupendous word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from the famous Disney Movie, Mary Poppins.

There is so much POWER in our words and they can be used for the greatest good or to disempower, so please be very mindful of the words you say to yourself and to others.

I’ve got to say, one of my favourite words is “aspirational” – for some reason, that word seems to “breathe life into me”.

Another word I seem to love is “exponential”. I was first introduced to this word by Broadcaster & Global Keynote Speaker, Rene Carayol at the “The Time is Now” Leadership Conference, held in Glasgow City Centre in 2009.

“Imaginative” another wonderful word that seems to ignite my spirit.

Okay, I need more time to create ‘THEE’ one word but I think you get the moral of the story:

When you add rules, limits and boundaries to your creative thinking, you are boxing up the best of you.

Remember you are a GIFT, so special, that doesn’t need to be boxed up.

Next time you’re in a team meeting trying to come up with an innovative solution or new concept, allow your thinking to flow freely with no barriers in the way.

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!

Yesterday’s Dreams

it does matter that you start

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

What if though, you had another chance?

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

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

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

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

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

Now that truly is a dream come true.

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

Drive or be Driven

always visualise yourself winning

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Life Worth Living

you can always start today

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

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

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

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

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

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

Maybe this is your calling!

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!

you are their cure.

so strong and brave,
you are the gift,
everyone of us crave.

Blue Rivers Run Deep

Empowering thoughts,

blue rivers run deep.

Swim in inspiration,
live by the lake,
the current breathes life,

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?

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.

When Light Meets the Dark

glowing magnetically

The light so daring,
burning bright,
glowing magnetically,
filled with delight.

Giving me hope,
gifted with pleasure,
dancing in ambience,
shining like treasure.

A symbol of desire,
a glistening spark,
dreams are awakened,
when light meets the dark.

Be Ready to Learn and Enhance Your Writing Skills

Write with a lyrical heart…..

SongSmith


Songwriting News

We make use of our mind to relay our feelings, to pass on what we are suggesting. Writing lyrics makes use of numerous elements of our mind; not only our feelings. For instance:

  • Awareness
  • Imagination
  • Education
  • Assessment
  • Study and Impartiality

You can enhance the expertise of your lyric writing and discover new methods of expressing yourself. As you gain knowledge, you naturally set up a tool kit which you utilize to articulate yourself.

Writing Lyrics Efficiently

Some songwriters and lyricists think that formalizing the building as well as utilization of a songwriters’ toolkit will in a way lower the validity of the formed lyrics; however, this is short sighted.

The reason is that to begin with, lyricists already implement a lot of skills which they gained knowledge of in a formal way, such as writing and reading.

You are going to have gained knowledge of the essentials of language, how…

She Writes with Spirit

happy writer of poetry

On my day off on Saturday, I put my car into the garage for its MOT test and whilst I was waiting on the results of the test I headed into the local coffee shop for a nice warm breakfast and a lovely cup of coffee.  It was snowing outside and I was all cosy sitting next to the glowing woodburner whilst drying off.  I wrote 8 poems during that time, the words just flowed out of me, it felt beautiful, it felt right.  Here is one of them for you:

She Writes with Spirit

She writes with spirit,
And passionate charm.
When her mind is free,
It releases all harm.
There is no pain,
In a purposeful thought.
An alignment of values,
Gives such a lot.
Her point is wise,
Her words inspire.
To capture all hearts,
This is her desire.
So she keeps on musing,
Whenever she can,
Like the oxygen she breathes,
Over the distance she ran.
She creates from space,
To feed her soul.
And continues this journey,
It makes her feel whole.

White Space

white space poetry

The miracle of white space is so magical it can be filled with anything, anything you want it to be filled by, anything….because I believe anything is possible my friend!!  This next poem is for you:

White Space

White space,
Speaks volumes inside.
Pages of hope,
Thoughts to confide.
To fill the blank,
To listen from within.
Changes the dimension,
Trophies the win.
Cast your eye,
Over the light.
Let it bring out your star,
Delivering dreams tonight.

The Coffee in her Cup

coffee in her cup

I love sipping a cup of coffee, watching the world go by and getting lost in writing poetry, I just love it. This is is for you.

The Coffee in her Cup

The coffee in her cup,
Ignites a letter.
Full of wisdom,
Inspiring to be better.
People take part,
In her unknown song.
Like mystical wires,
To where we belong.
Does it make sense?
Maybe not now.
But when you read back,
Then you’ll now how.

Creating Space

IMG_3597

Create a little more space for yourself in your life, do some decluttering of your environment, do some decluttering of you – maybe a detox, drink more pure, clear water, go visit the beach, breathe in the freshest sea salty air.  Clear out your mind, clear our your soul, dust away the cobwebs and revitalise your beautiful heart.  Creating space for you will create more space for the goodness to come in, I am sure of it, I believe that, I am living that.

Feel the space, love Clarabelle

Tune In

Trip of a Lifetime

Take a trip of a lifetime, you know the place you’ve always wanted to go to, plan making that trip now. Even if it takes you 5 years to get there, start planning NOW how you’re going to do it.

Think about how amazing it will be when you get there, see yourself there, having the BEST time of your life, how great does it feel?

Life is made up of experiences, so try your best to have more experiences that take your breath away.

Where do you want to go to?

New York at Christmas Time?
Graceland, to be inspired by the spirit of Elvis?
Route 66, a truly amazing train journey?
San Francisco, to stand close to the Golden Gate Bridge?
Iceland, to watch the stunning Northern Lights?
The snowy Cairngorm Mountains, Scotland?
A luxury world cruise?
Watch the sunset from the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town.

WOW, I bet you’re getting really excited, just thinking about it, I know I am. I have been extremely lucky to have been to some of the above places, inspirational journeys that really did take my breath away.

Start making plans today, I see you there and you are having the BEST time EVER.

Little words of inspiration to move you, love Clarabelle

Freeing my spirit,
From worry and strife.

Breaks down the brick wall.

In the twist of the wind,
No enemies appear.
All friends together,
Filled with good cheer.

Takes you beyond.
Frozen miracles,
Reflected in the pond.

Let it shine all around.
Mystic and magic,
Will soon be found.
