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?

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.

Aspirational Vision

Be a person of aspirational vision

May your greatest dreams become you.

Be a person of aspirational vision and allow it to carry you forward into achieving your greatest dreams.

Your purposeful heart deserves to feel those powerful feelings of dream success.

Visualise yourself there, embracing the pure joy and inner fulfilment of your realised dream.

Keep on dreaming and keep on aligning.

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.

In the Light of Day

When faith meets love

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

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

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

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

New Year Hearts

A celebration of life

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

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

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

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

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

The Magic of Life Itself

Truly ‘live’ your life

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

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

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

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

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

Clarabelle

Now is Forever

There is no greater presence than now

I want you to really think about the above quote and what it speaks to you.

There is no greater presence than NOW and no greater answer than NOW.

As soon as you become solely aware of this power, a positive internal shift begins to happen.

Time begins to slow down and eventually doesn’t exist. Worries become non-existent and joy becomes more of a priority or just IS.

Life changes thought or thought changes life? – that won’t matter anymore, because your true presence will thrive in natural flow.

You may never get to experience pure reality but one thing is for sure, if you do miss out on this one absolute truth, you truly haven’t lived.

Life doesn’t have to be as complicated as we make it. Calm waters make more impact than stormy seas.

I invite you to ponder in the stillness of life today.

Clarabelle

A Heart That Gives….

Sharing with you today.

I woke up during the middle of the night the other day and this quote below appeared in my mind. I have no idea, where those lovely words came from but I know I just had to share it with you today.

“A heart that gives, is a heart that grows.”

I Am Strong

Facing the fear

Today is hard,
just let me breathe,
away from it all,
like a falling leave.

Congested thoughts,
stuck in mind,
nothing clear,
people unkind.

Bring me hope,
as I kneel here,
holding faith,
facing the fear.

Let my spirit,
allow love in,
believing one day,
I will win.

Let me see,
the brightest star,
twinkling at me,
from afar.

Let the sun,
sparkle and shine,
raising my energy,
feeling divine.

Now I know,
I am strong,
no matter the worry,
this life I belong.

Equilibrium Upset?

Cherish your beautifully balanced equilibrium

When something or someone upsets your equilibrium, it’s important to reset your inner balance as soon as you can.

An off-balance internal system can throw out your whole day and keep you from moving forward.

Try to move on from the situation as quickly as possible or indeed “park it” until you’re ready to deal with it.

I know when my equilibrium is out of balance, I struggle to focus on the ‘job in hand’ and make any valuable progression.

Sometimes, all you need, is a well-deserved “time out” away from the person or situation, in order to give your body and head, space to think or perhaps – not to think!

To sit and dwell in an uncomfortable environment that upsets you even more, is absolutely not what we are trying to do here.

So next time you feel your harmonious field becoming disrupted, do your best to get away from that situation super fast.

You can deal with it, when you’re ready and not before then.

So cherish your beautifully balanced equilibrium and never give anyone or anything the power to knock it out of sync.

May your day be joyous and balanced.

May today’s video remind you of everything you have to be thankful for.

Be Grateful for Life

Be Grateful for Life

Create ‘flow’ in your life,
let worries melt away,
yesterday has gone
but the learning can stay.

Tomorrow is not here,
live for today,
enjoy each precious moment,
in every way.

Be grateful for life,
the moon and the sun,
be grateful for your family
and everyone.

Smile at your neighbours
and the stranger on the street,
for your smile is contagious,
to all that you meet.

Happy is the heart,
that glows from within,
embrace life and love
and forever you’ll win.

Tired?

Start planning right now for those challenging times.

I know going for your goals in life and chasing your dreams can be extremely tiring at times. Believe me – I am with you here!

You’ve got to get yourself a good strategy in place for when the going gets tough. Working on your “go to” strategy upfront will prepare you for those harder times – because we all know, those days will come.

The best way to stay on top of your game, is to prepare for the game, not when you’re winning but when you’re losing.

So start planning right now for those challenging times and be prepared to kickstart your “go to” strategy when it is urgently needed.

Stay strong, stay resilient and stay focussed my friend.

Everyday you must be brave, battle the barriers and become the greatest version of yourself.

I know you’ve got this – I just know!

Clarabelle, 29 November 2022

Take a Chance

Be determined.

Hello wonderful you! It’s Youtube Tuesday and today’s original video poem is all about giving yourself a chance at achieving your dreams. Stay focussed, stay strong and keep going my friend.

May today’s video inspire you to do greater things for you. GET GOING, BELIEVE!

Take a Chance

Take a chance,
on living your dream.
Put in the effort,
and feel supreme.
Capture the spirit,
from inside of you.
Be determined, be open,
to follow through.
Your champion heart,
will help you achieve.
This one’s for you,
get going, believe.

The Happier Side of Life

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Where Do I Fall?

A winning heart, is a champion mind.

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

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

Where Do I Fall

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

Poetry Days

I will have a POETIC EMPIRE evolving before your eyes

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

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

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

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

So there you have it. Poetry all the way.

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

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

The videos I create, will all be poetic.

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

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

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

My motto today is: keep it simple and do you

Thank you for being here.

Stand by YOU

be magnetically attracted to self-success

Turbulent times in life can eat away at your self-esteem but they can also make you super resilient and unbelieveably strong.

I choose tough times to ‘MAKE ME’ rather than, ‘break me’ and I guess, that’s just how I internally respond.

I think it’s the challenge seeker in me and possibly watching too many Rocky films when I was a child! Regardless of any punches that keep coming, I know I will always bounce back – every single time.

So what is it within me that gives me this fighting back spirit? I don’t really know but I do have this absolute determination and robust self-belief that if someone else can succeed at something, then I can too. I never ever look at anyone in ‘awe’ or wish I was them – I have always loved being me. I was never a fan of anyone or anything – I was happiest just being me.

Don’t get me wrong, there were lots of times growing up when I would hold back, be overly self-conscious and under confident BUT I promise you, I never wanted to be anyone else. I have felt fear, rejection, unloved and lost – especially as a young adult but as I put myself out into the world I started to become more ambitious and be magnetically attracted to self-success.

Instead of happily being led, I found myself naturally becoming the LEADER and feeling very comfortable in this role. As I found my own inner greatness, I would encourage and support others to fulfill their own potential too. Even to this day, I constantly see and seek out the BEST in everyone and that thinking gives me the most beautiful joy.

Many people have called me naive, too much of a ‘yes’ person, a people pleaser and a wearer of ‘rose tinted’ glasses. Personally, that doesn’t bother me too much and I don’t think that of me at all. I know my BEST growth has come from being true to me.

Have I gone off track? Yes, lots of times, and the only way I have managed to pull things back on track, is by realigning to my core values – it works every time!

I encourage you to STAND BY YOU and hold your position as strongly as you can, in the field that you want to grow in. Nurture your mind and body with good habits that will serve you well in the now and in the future.

Focus on developing your SELF-LEADERSHIP and CHAMPION every effort you make in order to change your life for the better.

After all. . . . .

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.

Why Your Brain Hurts?

take your brain into an information free zone

Your brain, with all its wonderful facets and zillions of neurological connections, really needs to be taken care of.

When my brain hurts and what I really mean is, when it’s tired, exhausted and/or drained – I just know it needs a rest from all the crazy noise and distractions out there.

Your brain is on the go all of the time, doing things like – keeping you safe, helping you learn and supporting your creative imagination.

It’s constantly picking up inner and outer signals to help you function most effectively on a moment to moment basis – no wonder it hurts sometimes.

So next time your amazing brain has moved into overload drive, give it some downtime and fresh space to clear out the clutter and make way for true clarity of thought.

Your brain is a wondrous miracle that enables you to bring out the best of you and helps you to demonstrate your inner magic.

So don’t go popping a paracetemol and hope that all the unwanted head pressure will all go away. Take your brain into an information free zone and let it mingle with absolutely nothing.

Disconnect your brain and give it time to reboot – you’ll most definitely feel like a different person.

Poetry Corner #5

you’re worth the wait

Welcome. Poetry Corner is every Thursday! Enjoy these whispering words.

WHERE FREEDOM WALKS

In troubled times,
forbidden glory,
tells doubtful minds,
the untold story.

A trek to find,
that special place,
where freedom walks,
and enters space.

A lonely haven,
or paradise
a risk, a battle,
roll of the dice.

Time is gold,
a rich man said,
you're worth the wait,
a coin for bread.

Silence whispers,
engaging thought,
questions answered,
of how and what?

Think it matters?
Know who cares?
A different you,
the one who dares.

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!

BIG THINKERS with a purposeful VISION

I was a Professional Executive Coach for many years and really did do very well in it. I met the most AMAZING leaders, whom I learned so much from. I found similar qualities in the leaders who made the BEST progress and I share below some of these:-

An incredibly ambitious growth mindset;

Deep listeners with a real eagerness to become more self-aware;

A true drive and enthusiasm for positive self-change;

Powerful and fast acting on the implementation
of new ideas and learning;

A desire to become a better leader and to empower others
to see their own leadership capabilities;

An unbelieveable ability to turn things around where needed;

Internally honest and seekers of truth to help them
get out of their own way;

An energetic passion for meaningful results
within themselves and others;

A first class ability to know what needs done and
the onboard accountability for doing it;

Aspirational in their thinking and inspirational in their doing;

BIG THINKERS with a purposeful VISION;

And, let me tell you, this impressive list of leadership qualities goes on and on!

I am proud to say, I worked with the GREATEST in their field and I will never forget how ELATED and ENERGISED we both would feel after a truly progressive coaching session.

If you are in a leadership position and are currently struggling with your current set up or difficult strategic decisions – seek out a recommended professional executive coach or business mentor, who will ignite your inner drive, deeply question your current position and open up your own strategic thinking to achieve the necessary results.

There are an abundance of leadership coaching tools out there, that a highly skilled coach or mentor can share with you, in order to help you progress FAST!

Leaders have a lot of heavy plates spinning, whilst under a tremendous amount of work and personal stress – maybe it’s time to seek out the expertise you need.

Don’t stay stuck and never stay stagnant!

Be THEE Leader!

You’ve Got 100 Days

pick a feasible goal that you really want to achieve

Whenever I want to make a significant change in my life, I give myself a 100 day challenge to make it happen.

I will set the goal in hand, mark the start and end date and then everyday, I just bloody well GO FOR IT!

I have read so many times over and over again that it takes 21 days to break a habit but unfortunately that has never been true for me. I know this, because I have put it to the test many times before. I would be interested to know, has it ever worked for you?

In my opinion if you aim for a really juicy goal that you want to achieve and stay wholeheartedly committed to achieving it – the 100 day rule, gives you more than enough time. I have used this for daily running challenges, healthy eating changes and life-changing career decisions. 100 days, to me, is the PERFECT timeline for making a real positive impact on your life.

So let’s say I start today, 1 August 2022 and set myself a goal to write one blog post everyday for the next 100 days. That means, the 100th day lands on 8 November 2022 and I just know that by that day a HUGE positive impact will be made on my life – for me, it’s almost guaranteed.

You want a new job? Try the 100 day challenge.

You want a new relationship? Do the 100 day challenge.

You want to get fitter? Action the 100 day challenge.

You want to move home? Apply the 100 day challenge.

You want to start a new business? Implement the 100 day challenge.

It even works for training for a marathon – and I’ve run four!

And the goals list goes on……

The key here is, you must be committed to the goal in hand and you must NEVER miss out a day – if you do, give yourself the consequence of needing to start from day 1 again! (But then that wouldn’t be 100 days anymore).

Whatever date you are reading this, pick a feasible goal that you really want to achieve. Mark down the start of your 100 day challenge and highlight your end date – now it’s time, to GET TO WORK!

Are you up for the 100 Day Challenge?

Don’t overthink it – START NOW!

Oh and please let me know how you get on – I want to hear your SUCCESS story, so that it can INSPIRE and MOTIVATE others.

YOU’VE GOT THIS!

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!

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.

Blue Rivers Run Deep

swim in inspiration

Empowering thoughts,
tell the story,
a mind so strong,
brings love and glory.

Sweet nature's gift
is here to keep,
a heartfelt wave,
blue rivers run deep.

Swim in inspiration,
live by the lake,
the current breathes life,
into each step you take.

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?

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.”

If God lets me
I trust he'll make the deal

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.

Goodbye My Precious

I set you free

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CHAMPION HEART

give life your all

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

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

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

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

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

You’re the Star

forever inspiring

You're the Star,
that shines so bright,
giving me hope,
bringing me light.

You're the Star,
in my heart,
forever inspiring,
igniting each part.

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.
