The Power of Gratitude

Enrich yourself in this beauty

Gratitude is so mighty powerful, it can turn a losing mindset into a winning mindset in an instant.

Be thankful for the abundance that surrounds you and enrich yourself in this beauty.

If you are feeling lost right now or need a simple ‘pick me up’, write down what you are thankful for and continue to do this daily. I promise you, this positive practice will abolish any negative self-talk you are having in that moment and empower strong foundations from within.

"I am grateful for my health and abundance all around; I am grateful for the love and real happiness I have found."     Clarabelle

What are you grateful for?

Thank you for being here.

Grateful Heart

So kind and true

A grateful heart is a happy heart.

A grateful heart is a peaceful heart.

A grateful heart is a blissful heart.

There are so many things in your life to be grateful for. Take a moment each and everyday to be thankful and feel your heart grow.

I am grateful to you for being here.

Patience is Underrated

Patience is beyond valuable

Patience is underrated, make sure you get some of that.

Patience is beyond valuable on your journey of life.

Develop your patience so you can face any tough situation going forward in your life.

This one I’m working on and it’s a whole lot harder than you think.

How’s your own patience?

Clarabelle

Self-Mastery

Flourish in your own magnificence

Be a weapon of self-mastery.

Once one conquers thyself miracles happen.

Your goal on this journey of life is whatever you want it to be and I guarantee you that you’ll get there so much faster if you focus your mind on mastering thyself.

The greatest version of you is waiting to be unleashed and only you my friend have the key.

Keep on keeping on and flourish in your own magnificence.

Clarabelle

You Give

We all grow in different ways

You give, you grow, you live.

Giving is an ultimate part of living. We all grow in different ways but a better way to flourish is my giving yourself to others in a purposeful and meaningful way.

Give a little of your time, love, service and knowledge and you will surely blossom like a beautiful flower under the brightest sun.

Giving is living and growing is showing that everyday.

Clarabelle

Believe

What will it take?

You’re better than you believe.

Maybe it’s truly time now to really start believing in yourself.

Think how different your life could be if your self-belief reached greater heights.

What will it take from you to believe in yourself more?

Remember your experience and what you bring to the table.

Clarabelle

Success

Success can truly become you

Do what the successful do.

The great Tony Robbins said, “success leaves clues”.

Know what success looks like for you and then study a good role model who has been successful at the same thing.

I believe that if someone else can be successful at something, then you can too.

Success can truly become you.

Clarabelle

Applaud Success

Spread a little bit of goodness

Applaud the success of others.

When you are happy for others, you also receive their feeling of happiness.

Spread a little bit of goodness and joy today and celebrate all successes, not just your own.

We’re all in this together, so let’s help each other to win.

Wishing you a day filled with many wins.

Clarabelle

In the Light of Day

When faith meets love

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

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

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

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

Clarabelle



New Year Hearts

A celebration of life

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

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

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

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

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

Clarabelle

The Magic of Life Itself

Truly ‘live’ your life

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

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

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

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

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

Clarabelle

Faking Happiness

Know what makes your heart sing.

You can’t fake true happiness, for real happiness exudes a different kind of energy from within and feels truly magical.

Faking happiness, although it might seem like a good idea to please others, will never match up to authentic happiness and will leave you feeling out of sync with who you really are.

In order for you to feel truly happy, you’ve got to know what makes your heart sing. What things do you like doing that makes your heart smile? Below are four of my favourite things that fall exactly into the wonderful “happiness” category:

  1. Giving to others and sharing kindness – I always get much more happiness giving to others than receiving and I know that will never change for me. I love to see other people happy, smiling and embracing joy.
  2. Creative writing – this brings me inner contentment and happiness – when I write I feel connnected to who I really am but it has to be for the benefit of others – or it doesn’t quite feel the same.
  3. Singing – I know I don’t sing enough and I really love singing and songwriting – both of these acts feel like magic to me and make me so happy. This is something I will do more of in 2023 – so watch this space!
  4. Spending time with my nieces and nephew – one of the greatest gifts of them all that gives complete joy and natural happiness.

So I invite you to welcome authentic happiness into your life today and every day so you can embrace the true joy of who you really are.

The Ultimate Attitude

Moving you one step closer to your dreams

There is a magnetic, captivating and contagious attitude that when embraced and shared throughout your daily activities will catapult you and your life to the greatest level.  It’s the the attitude of “yes I can” “yes I will help” “yes I will do it” “yes this is a great opportunity” “yes, thank you for the experience” “yes I will certainly give it a try” “yes I will keep going” “yes I will give it 100%”. THIS attitude is the ultimate attitude of moving you one step closer to your dreams. This beautiful attitude, attracts to you, the life that you desire.

Opportunities

I hold this attitude in my heart and mind every day. I live and breathe this attitude as much as I can and it has been very good to me in return.

Opportunities are abundant, they are everywhere, living and breathing around you but only with the right attitude will you see them and get a chance to experience them.

Scenic Route

This is the right attitude which will help you to get to where you want to go.  It’s sometimes the scenic route, in other words, not always the quickest route, but certainly when you look back on life it’s the most fulfilling.

Yes I Can

What’s the point of living your life with a “I hate the world” attitude? What’s the point of letting everyone know you’re having a bad day? Think about it, with that attitude you’re just dragging everyone else around you down – well if they let you.  Personally, I never gravitate towards people with that unhappy negative attitude, I move away from them as fast as I can.  Think about lifting yourself up for a change, practice having a “yes I can” attitude and be grateful for your everyday challenges, for without them you would not grow and without growth your contribution to the world becomes less and less and thus moving you away from a meaningful and fulfilling life.

Zest

Live your life with zest and with an upbeat attitude that will allow you to tackle even the most difficult of challenges.  A positive attitude will attract the right people into your life, people who will want to help you, people who will be there for you, people who will support you and stand by your side in the toughest of times.  Be enthusiastic, be excited about life and engage in new things that interest you and do as much as you can of what you love.  Your whole being will thank you for it. Get going and take the right attitude with you today and everyday.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Your Time Will Come

Remember to have some fun along the way

Take the weeds of worry out of your life today – just for today and erase all negativity, all complaining and all blaming. Even this very thought should make you feel lighter inside.

It may seem hard right now to think that your glory days are on their way but if you keep sticking with what’s working, keep changing what’s not, keep fine-tuning your current position, then my friend, your time will surely come.

Your time will come, it will, so keep at it and believe what your doing will absolutely work for you in the end.

Oh and remember to have some fun along the way!!

It’s your life – GO GET IT!

Why You Looking at me?

aim to be more self-confident

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Clarabelle loves to run!

I hope I have inspired you to run too!

Have a GREAT one, wonderful you.

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!

I’m Not Scared

run wild, free and happy

When you become free from the limited minds of others, then you will have the ability to face most fears – if not all!

Self-conscious thinking is never going to get you anywhere but stuck and believe me, ‘stuck in the mud”, is not a good look at all.

When you’re thinking and doing becomes boundless, you achieve more and more each and everyday.

When you go from being fearful to saying, “I’m not scared”, you open a whole new world for yourself.

Don’t be a prisoner to your thinking, because none of it is real anyway.

Shift your cellblock mindset to beautiful thoughts of open landscapes, where you run wild, free and happy.

I know where my thoughts would rather be!

Think about your thinking – is it serving you well right now?

Help! 5 Steps to Progress

You’ll definitely get there.

I know you need help – we all do at certain times in our lives. Below are five simple steps to help you move forward in life:-

  1. What you firstly want to do, is specifically work out, what kind of help you need.
    You might ask the question – “What end result do I want”?
  2. Next, we have to get real here – you need to be brutally honest about what’s happening for you now.
    A good question would be, “What’s my current reality?”
  3. We now need to move your thinking from the current challenge to thinking about, what it will feel like to you, once you have achieved your goal or overcome your current challenge – really get yourself excited about this!
    To raise your thinking, ask yourself, “What will it feel like, look like or be like for me, once I have achieved this goal?”
  4. Then you need to think about, what resources are out there, in order for you to tap into, to get the right help.
    Ask yourself, “What options are available to me?”
  5. Next, you need to take some self-action.
    A good question here, might be – “Given all the options available to me, what’s the best way forward?” and “What plan will I put in place in order to make this happen? or better still “What’s my first step?”

Now, it really is, over to you, to get to work and progress on. If you put in 100% effort and remain committed to the change – you’ll definitely get there.

Keep measuring, reviewing and fine-tuning along the way – it will definitely keep you on track.

It’s Your Life – GO GET IT!

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.

Clarity of Thought

What if you did something different today?

Albert Einstein Clarity of thought

It’s very easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of life, doing the same thing day in and day out. The treadmill of life can be a bit like that, if you let it. What if you did something different today? What if you surprised yourself with trying something new, maybe something that you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t quite got there yet?

Your Day

Let this be your day, your day to express yourself in a different way, your day to shine in a different way that adds sparkle to your own life and brightens up another’s life. What would that be for you?  When you gain clarity of thought in this area, it will immediately perk you up, you will feel excited and joyous about this new activity in your life.

Follow Your Heart

“Follow your heart”, it really is one of those sayings that a lot of people love and a lot of people quite frankly dismiss. Personally, I have been on both sides of the camp, at different times in my life – sometimes following my heart and sometimes following my head!  Lots of times, I didn’t follow through with the heart stuff because my head got in the way – is this good or bad?  No regrets, thats what I say – I am here now, grateful in this moment and that is what matters most to me now.

Dig Deep

What do you enjoy most about your life right now? Even if you are finding that question hard to answer, dig deep if you have to – you’ll most definitely find something and soon realise, you are a lot richer than originally thought.

Be Present

Review the experiences you are currently having in your life right now – are these experiences of quality, of fulfilment, of purpose?  Are you growing and contributing to life as much as you want to be?  Questions, questions, so many questions but the right question will lead you to be present in the fullness of life.

I ask you today, to ponder the thoughts that this post raises for you. Reading between the lines, What speaks true for you?  Here is one conclusion of many – heart with no effort, equals a head with more troubles – work that one out!!

Gain real clarity in why you do what you do – your head and your heart will thank you for it.

Thank you for being here.

It’s Your Life, Go Get It!!

Unhappy?

Don’t gamble your true happiness for a safe, dull and perhaps boring life.

Want to change something in your life for the better? I think, we all do.

Decide what that is for you and put everything you’ve got into it. 100% progressive effort, really can make the difference between a better situation and the BEST situation.

I encourage you today, to take your destiny by the hands and do what needs done.

Don’t expect anyone to carry you to your dream outcome – you’ve got to take full responsibility for making GREAT things happen.

Everyday, strive for impactful change that will have the most powerful ripple effect on your life and the life of others.

I write to YOU, yes YOU, who needs to hear these words and do something about the unhappy parts of your life.

Don’t gamble your true happiness for a safe, dull and perhaps boring life.

Are you in?

See you at the top wonderful YOU.

Are You Good Enough?

really believe that, YES, you are good enough

good enough

This is a question you maybe ask yourself every now and again. Your answer may vary depending on your mood, what’s going on around you and what you’re currently involved in.  However, I want you to believe, really believe that YES, you are good enough. In this moment now, you are good enough to take the next step, good enough to challenge your thinking and good enough to get back in control of your life.  As a matter of fact, good is not complimentary enough because you are amazing, wonderful and can create positive impact wherever you go – it’s all a matter of choice.

Limiting Beliefs

Never let your own limiting beliefs starve you from an unlimited amount of possibilities that are open for you.  Master the right thinking, thoughts that will serve you well and thoughts that will challenge the norm and catapult you into a new, invigorating and forever thriving life.

Aim High

I encourage you to set your target, aim high and focus on building momentum – reviewing progress along the way. Don’t live a dull, boring and unfulfilled life because you are set in your ways or lack the energy to do anything about it. The less you do, the less motivated you will feel, so embrace the opportunity in the now and conquer the life that you want.

Winning Formula

We all dream of better things, a better life, more happiness and more fulfilment but dreaming and doing are completely two different things.  One without the other proves to be meaningless, but combine the two together and you get a winning formula for the life you deserve.

Break the Chains

The days, weeks, months and years can go past really quickly in an unchallenged lack lustre life.  Raise your standards and don’t allow yourself to settle for what currently is. Break the chains from your robotic life and feel alive again and if you don’t remember how feeling alive really feels, then this is surely your cue to take over.

Over and out…….keep at it!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

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!

Finding Your Happy

happiness will pop in and out of my life

There are many different indicators of where happiness exudes from and I don’t think there is a ‘one size fits’ all.

I think each individual is so extremely complex, wonderful and unique that it would be quite impossible to come up with a general list for this.

There is nothing ‘general’ about being happy – let me explain.

Through different stages of life, my own quest for happiness has been determined by many different factors – mostly, where I am at, what I am doing, where I am going, who I am with and how I am feeling. Some of this stuff can relate to external positioning and material gains and sometimes that kinda stuff did make me ‘kinda’ happy.

However, there is a huge gap here that always feels unfulfiled in terms of ‘happiness’ when I feel out of alignment with my inner values, sense of meaningful contribution and working towards a purposeful vision.

You see ‘happiness’ I think, can never be extended for a ‘forever’ period of time – life just doesn’t work out that way.

I think what we are however looking for, which I feel, is much more powerful than happiness, is finding peace of mind and harmonious balance from within. When this is achieved, it’s like being in ‘flow’ and it offers a real sense of inner freedom that can never be captured.

The older and wiser I get, I realise that happiness will pop in and out of my life, just the same way excitement does and feeling motivated to do something.

If I am searching for ‘me’ in the whole process of life, then it is in the silence of the mind that the best part of me whispers.

Enjoy your happy times, for they are indeed precious, like sparkly, shiny jewels. The real sparkle however, comes from your own inner light, peacefully flowing in the freedom of your heart. Some even call that love.

I See You

so strong and brave

I recognize your being,
everything you give,
your caring heart,
the way you live.

I see you always,
mindful and pure,
helping another,
you are their cure.

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

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?

Life

vibrant throughout

With its twists and turns,
and turbulent times,
with its happy memories,
and sweet sublimes.

Life is colour,
and vibrant throughout,
Life is beautiful,
it's all about.

With its songs of mercy,
and praise in between,
with its dance of joy,
and what has been.

Life is precious,
and tender in touch,
Life is magical,
I love it so much.

Being “Me”

this is your call

Do not try to be loved,
for that force never wins,
opening up your heart,
is where attraction begins.

Do not try to be wanted,
for this wonderful you,
is unique and special,
for the right person too.

Do not try to be liked,
for you have it all,
talented and beautiful,
this is your call.

Do not try to be something,
you never want to be,
always stay you,
enjoy being "me".

What is…..?

a miracle glowing

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

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

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

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

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

You’re the Star

You're the Star,
that shines so bright,

You're the Star,

You're the Star,
strong in power,
fading the darkness,
sparkling each hour.

You're the Star,
soulful in time,
guiding to goodness,
simply divine.

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.

Second Chances and Life Advances

Second Chances and Life Advances

Grab yourself a second chance in life, take it, run with it and celebrate it, for second chances and life advances don’t come around very often – do you hear me?

Second chances and life advances.…you’ve got this!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

The Knock On Effect

the domino effect

The Knock On Effect

“Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.”

Who said this and what does this really mean?

This is a statement from Newtons Third Law, now I’m not going to go into the laws of physics today but I want to help you to think about this phrase in terms of what you put out to the world.

Do you put out good, positive, happy energy OR do you, more often than not, put out the opposite of this?

Think of the “domino effect” of putting out good energy, giving someone some words of encouragement – how will that make the person feel and how will that make you feel?  Great….right?

Now I want you to apply your positive energy in a good way in your everyday behaviours.  When you’re going about your business today, spread some goodness, give off some cheer, be happy and share happiness.

I want you to try it for one full day, go on try it today or tomorrow and I bet you that the “knock on” effect from these positive behaviours will return to you in abundance.

Practice this art of giving out positive energy and it will be returned to you in kind.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Fresh Air Thinking

fresh air thinking

Fresh Air Thinking

Go out into the fresh air and free your mind of all the noise, you know all that head stuff that gets in the way of you progressing.

Fresh air thinking brings you clarity, renewed focus and more control of what’s going on.  Get out of your box, go for a walk, run or drive and breathe in the stillness.

Give your body and mind the break it deserves, you’ll return focused and back on track to pick up where you left off, but only this time, you’ll be in a better head space.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Are You Happy?

happy

Are You Happy?

Are you happy right now….well, are you? Maybe you don’t feel like answering that question because then you have to deal with the reality of it if it’s not answered with a big fat “yes”.

The search for happiness doesn’t always come easy and very sadly, for some people it will not come at all, not because they can’t have happiness but probably, more often than not, it’s because they won’t allow themselves to be happy.

Make a choice today to be grateful for the little things in life, things like, having warm clothes to wear on a cold winter’s day, being able to access running water at the turn of a tap, having a roof over your head, being able to watch the sunrise and to smell the summer flowers.  Some people call these the simple pleasures of life but I like to think of them as the miracle pleasures that we experience almost everyday and sometimes never give them a second thought.

Today, give them a second thought and a third thought and so on because that my friend will help you see the answer to that initial question for what it truly is. So, I’ll ask you again, are you happy right now….well, are you?

It’s your life, go get it!!

Stick to the Plan

stick to the plan

Stick to the Plan

Sometimes your plan doesn’t go to plan, but that’s alright.  Remember why this plan was important to you in the first place.  Set backs reach the best of us, it’s our opportunity to grow.  Stick to the plan and keep moving forward, as you never know just what’s around the corner.

Stick to the plan my friend, stick to the plan.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Help to Help

Help to Help

It’s always a nice gesture to help someone who is needing a little bit of help.  I really love helping people, it makes me feel so good inside when I help someone.  Offer a helping hand today, even if it’s just a little thing because that could make the biggest difference to someone else.

Hold this one in your heart and help to help.

It’s your life go get it!!
