I know you’re there,

Poetry Corner #17 Wisdom Speaks Truth

Creation becomes you.

Your wisdom speaks truth,
in all that you do,
flowing and growing,
magnetically to you.

It whispers knowings,
from days gone by,
captivating choices,
helping your why.

No filters required,
intuition sets free,
an inner magic,
letting you see.

Your life it matters,
everything is true,
when knowledge appears,
with no hint or clue.

Beyond each moment,
deep in your heart,
creation becomes you,
right from the start.

Kicking the Brick Wall

if you’re angry, you’re wrong

Yes, you did read that right….. and what a really stupid thing for me to do!

2008

The year was 2008 and I was training for my first marathon. I was about 8 months into my training (out of 11 months in total) and was on a significant 16 mile run. Up until then, everything was going perfectly in my training and this particular Sunday morning run, started off really well.

I got to about 12 miles in, and soon, a little knee niggle became a huge big, pain in the butt – so much so, that I had to stop running at the 13 mile mark.

To say I was furious, was an understatement – I was so ANGRY and FRUSTRATED, that I started to agressively kick the brick wall next to me. I kicked that wall so hard that I nearly did myself some serious damage, but thankfully, I realised how stupid I was being and eventually stopped.

This ‘kicking the brick wall’ incident was very ‘out of character’ for me, and as I reflect on it today, I feel very bewildered by that ‘manic behaviour’ – it really made no sense at all!

LIFE

The ups and downs of Life WILL put our true emotions to the test and it’s our job to have internal control over how we respond to these emotions. Anger, frustration, aggression and crazy behaviour, NEVER EVER works…. period!

I recently watched a video interview of a former Royal Marine, who shared one piece of learning that was so POWERFUL. In this interview, he said, “if you’re angry, you’re wrong” – WOW . . . . . just think about that for a minute.

RERUN

So let’s take the aforementioned running incident and deal with it all over again, today, as it was back then. What would I do? Well, as soon as I felt the little niggle at the 12th mile – I’d stop, flag a taxi, rest the overworked knee and celebrate my progress to date, with my favourite bar of chocolate!

*IMPORTANT NOTEno bricks walls were harmed in this 2008 incident, only a bruised EGO that needed to learn a hard lesson!

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?

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!

Just Smile

Rainbow

A smile can bring comfort to the deepest pain and a smile will warm your heart until full happiness returns again. This next poem is just for you……”Just Smile”.  I wish you a day filled with rainbows and smiles.  Love Clarabelle

Just Smile 

When times are tough and you’re feeling rough
Just smile
When thunder roars and the rain pours
Just smile
When happiness goes and the wild wind blows
Just smile
When you’re lost in the crowd and don’t feel proud
Just smile
When hope departs and there’s broken hearts
Just smile
When the bee stings and no one sings
Just smile
When darkness falls and there’s only brick walls
Just smile
When you want to be you, when you want to be true
Just smile
When you smile, you bring love and light
Smile with your heart, win the fight
