Surprise Surprise!!

Expect a wonderful happy surprise, feel what that feels like and you know what, I believe that the law of attraction has got to give it to you.

Do what feels good to you and that doesn’t mean that you have to wait until it has actually materialised, feel good now, in this moment and smile.  I think a lovely surprise is on it’s way to you and to me…just you wait and see!!

Life is full of wonderful surprises, love to you, Clarabelle.

Be In Love

Be in love everyday with your story of life. Be in love with each moment that you experience. Be in love with the beauty of nature around you and be in love with yourself. Fill your blank page with love today, put love into all that you do, then see and feel the difference to the outcomes you receive.

Love fully, love deeply and let love nourish every part of your body. Be in love with who you are, after all you deserve it.

Lots of love, Clarabelle

Loch Lomond Sky

A bird flies high,
Beneath the Loch Lomond Sky.

With freedom in its wings,
The whispers of its soul sings.

A beautiful tranquil day,
Where shadows guide the way.

And reflections of white light,
Keep my heart bright.

As I stand here all alone,
Loch Lomond feels like home.

It takes my breath away.
Forever this moment will stay.

Clarabelle Quotes, When a rainbow smiles

Where is the Beauty?

Where is the beauty?
Where does it go?

Here comes the dancing,
Here comes the show.

Open your eyes,
Let the world in.

Open your heart,
And forever you’ll win.

Time is so precious,
Treasure it well.

Believe in your talents,
They’re a magical spell.

For the beauty is in you,
It goes with your heart.

Know this is true,
Down to every last part.

Guest Post of the Month – Linda Smith

Poetry from the Heart

It is my pleasure to introduce you to a wonderfully talented young lady, Linda Smith.  Linda is such a positively inspiring person and I have known her from my childhood.  She writes beautiful poetry from the heart and one of her poems is shared with you below.

Linda Smith
Beautiful Poet, Linda Smith

Introduction by Linda

Hi my name is Linda Smith and I like to write about things which inspire me, and all my writing comes from the heart. My whole outlook on life changed after my battle with anorexia. It taught me that life is priceless and should be treated as such. My philosophy is ‘You only get one shot at life, so live it to the max.’

I have a beautiful family, 2 girls, who mean the world to me and whom help, and support me with everything I do and without them I would be completely lost. I work with children and it is a wonderful job because of the innocence which they possess.

As well as writing poetry, and verses, I love to go to the gym because while I’m working out I get time with my thoughts. I love to smile, and make other people smile to because it costs nothing to make someone feel good just with smiling at them.

A Heart Full of Happiness

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

I’ve had my troubles and problems alike,
But I know that someone is there like a light,
Switching my sense on and telling me why,
I shouldn’t get down, upset or cry, because.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

I’m thankful for all the chances I’ve been given,
For everyone who has been there, including those now in heaven,
Life is for living, not for dwelling,
We only get one shot so make it worth telling.

I look around to see where I am, not my area but my life…..you understand,
I ponder over it and think to myself,
I’ve achieved what I want to and still have plans,
My family and friends I love with all my heart.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

So the next time I think of complaining,
I’ll stop and wonder why I’m havering,
Because people out there are worse of than me,
These people need help, support and to cry a new tear,
But me, hey, my life’s not perfect,
But I’ve got what I want, who I need, and a bundle of love, so.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

Beauty is everywhere….

Stunning

I was visiting my mum yesterday and I just had to take this stunning photograph for you of the sun setting in the sky in my hometown village of Carfin.

This is the sky view I used to look up at as a child in the summer time and dream of exciting adventures way far in the distance.  The beauty of the sky can really take my breath away at times, just like this very moment yesterday.    May you find much beauty in the magical moments of your day today.  Love Clarabelle

Happy Mother’s Day

It is Mother’s Day here in the UK and I want to send out a beautiful blessing to all the wonderful Mother’s out there, who bring much love and abundance to this world.  This next poem is dedicated to my own beautiful mum, to your mum too and indeed, if you are a mum.  Wishing you a very special day filled with love.  Clarabelle

My Beautiful Mum

A Mother in a Million

Mother you are so beautiful, in every single way,

You brighten up each moment, and listen to what I say.

Your love is so very special, to each and everyone,

You’re a mother in a million, stronger than the sun.

I love you so dearly, more than you’ll ever know,

Thank you my wonderful mother, your wisdom has helped me grow.

Happy and Bright

Sometimes a few simple words share a whole lot of meaning.  The next poem may be short and sweet but the silence between each line speak many heartfelt words.  Wishing you a beautiful day, Clarabelle.

Your Soul is Beautiful

I love inspirational quotes, below is an inspirational quote created by me for YOU….because, your soul is truly beautiful!!  Much love to you today, Clarabelle.

Inspirational Quote
Your Soul is Beautiful

 

“Your soul is beautiful,

Jump on that Cloud

Merry Christmas Everyone

When we really stop and take a meaningful look at the beauty around us, only then do we see it and feel it.  We have the power within us to magnify joy in each moment.  Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder and I hope you choose to pause for a moment and open your eyes and heart to see it on this special celebratory day.  This next poem is inspired by just that.  Merry Christmas Everyone, Lots of Love Clarabelle.

jump on that cloud

Jump on that Cloud

The stars have no beauty, without your eyes,

Are the lights still shining? – Truth or lies.

Without your presence, nothing is real,

Nothing is enjoyed, no emotions you feel.

Paint a picture, of a world without time,

No space on earth, just simply sublime.

Let your imagination, stretch that far,

Outside of your reality, no sound from the guitar.

The magic is in you, do you see what I see?

Without your world, nothing can be.

The universe is calling, life is your gift,

Jump on that cloud, to your dreams you will drift.

Sweet Balmaha Bay

Scotland has the most beautiful scenery, I am so grateful to be living here.  This next poem is inspired by my visit last year to Balmaha, Scotland (photo below) on a frosty winter’s day.  This magical little beauty spot left me with a diamond experience.  If you ever come to Scotland, this place is certainly worth a visit, you’ll never forget it.  Wishing you  a diamond day, lots of love Clarabelle.

A Winter’s Day in Balmaha, Scotland

Sweet Balmaha Bay

Balmaha, an inspiring place,
Oh how I love, your beautiful face.
The silent lake, speaks many words,
A magical paradise, beneath the flight of birds.
My soul’s at home, when I visit you,
I feel at one, below the sky so blue.
As I tie a yellow ribbon, around the old oak tree,
I appreciate your world, for all to see.
The air is clean, fresh and new,
The shimmering sunlight, makes a stunning view.
And the many boats, who sail in leisure,
Uplifting spirits, you provide great pleasure.
In hail or rain, sunshine or snow,
Your tranquil beauty, will always show.
For the depths of your heart, are in everyone,
Sweet Balmaha Bay under the horizon sun.

Love All Things

L.I.F.E.’ = Love It Feel Excited!!  This is my motto, it used to be ‘Live It Feel Excited’ but now I feel changing the word ‘live’ to ‘love’ is much more fitting.  This next poem is inspired by just that, wishing you an exciting day, love Clarabelle.

love all things

Love All Things

I’m excited about life, and all that could be,

Opportunities are abundant, look and see.

A hop and a skip, will help me think,

Free up the body, as quick as a blink.

I sing to the music, my heart plays a tune,

I’m dancing and laughing, under the moon.

***

This world is so beautiful, treasure it all,

Love flows like a river, towards the waterfall.

Time may go fast, so treat it like snow,

It can melt in the moment, like a heart with a glow.

Your body will tell you, if it doesn’t like its fuel,

Look after it well, is the number one rule.

It’s nature’s way, to help us grow,

Love all things, and the love in you will flow.
