October – Question of the Month

Welcome to October’s question of the month post.  At the beginning of every month I like to pose a question for you to contemplate and I will also share my own answer to the question for you.  October’s question:

Question:

Now that we’re in the the final quarter of 2013, it is good to reflect on your achievements of the year so far.  What are you most proud of achieving this year so far?

Answer:

This is a difficult one to answer for me because I honestly feel there are so many things that I am proud of achieving this year so far and a lot of it is not always immediately obvious to the outside world because a lot of it is related to self mastery, understanding oneself, become true to myself and being the person that I am and that I am becoming.

If I had to choose one I would definitely say it is related to moving forward with my singing/songwriting career.  I have such passion and soul connection to this ambition. This year so far I have taught myself how to play the keyboard, created 9 instrumentals and written 25 original songs over a 6 month period.

Everything related to me moving forward with this part of my life feels like a miracle to me, it was as if it came out of nowhere but it was a childhood dream deeply cemented in my heart.  I do truly believe that if I didn’t start this blog in April last year, I am not sure if the singing/songwriting would have unleashed itself so quickly, or even at all!!  It is as if this blog was the planting of a seed “the new me” and every blog post has nurtured that seed to grow, develop, flourish and blossom.  This blog I am so very grateful for, this blog was certainly last year’s number one achievement by far. 🙂

Reflection 

It is good to reflect on your past achievements and I would encourage you to answer this month’s question and also take time to celebrate your achievements.  After all you did it and you deserve it, you deserve the happiness it brings you.

Now, that we’re into the last quarter of 2013, make it the greatest three months of your life, I know I am.

Much love to you today, as always, Clarabelle.

What Are You Tolerating?

what are you tolerating

A Question to Ponder

You may not wish to answer straight away, you may wish to contemplate the question for a few minutes/hours/days or even a couple of weeks.  You don’t even need to post the answer on here, but it would be nice if you would and share your answers with others.  So here is your question:

What are you tolerating?

Here is my answer:

These days I don’t tolerate most things that don’t serve me well and I made that change for myself a while back after I came across this statement “You get what you tolerate”.  Wow, that was a transformational statement to me because it really made me think of what I was tolerating at that time in my life and didn’t wish to continue to tolerate.  This changed my thinking at that time and inspired positive change within me.

So these days, if I’m purely honest, I don’t put up with anything that I don’t want and that is because I have greater self-respect and self-love for myself, I have raised my personal standards and everyday I work towards living my life in alignment with my values.  My focus is on what I want out of life not what I don’t want and then I do what I can to achieve what I desire.  Sometimes this isn’t easy and I have to push past internal barriers but as long as I have moved one baby step closer to my goal, then I know I am progressing and I will definitely arrive.

You get what you tolerate and if you don’t like it, change it!!
