Now that I have swapped rainy Scotland for Sunny Dubai for a while, I sit here in my new home reflecting on the decisions and choices I made that took me here.
When the opportunity came about a couple of months ago, my mindset was strong, positive and open to change. It simply just felt right at the time and when the decision was made to go it was like the Universe opened up and encouraged me along the way.
I went out for a walk on my own last night and stayed out for almost 5 hours, I was enjoying each present moment and felt happy, content and free. I was experiencing life in the moment, in a city I had never been to before and I felt no fear, it was like this was just meant to be.
So whether I stay here for a long time or a short time, I guess time will tell. Right now I feel that this one step will lead me to greatness, a greatness from within where fear has no home.
Remember it’s the decisions that you make everyday in your life that creates your path for tomorrow. What will your tomorrow look like? One thing I do know is that my tomorrow will be hot and sunny.
I want you to think about this, how do you usually respond to the people and circumstances around you when you are in a low mood? Chances are if you’re anything like me, not very positively. Wouldn’t it be best then to wait until your mood changes to a much more positive mood before you respond to situations. Yes, I know you can’t wait forever because this is life and you will want to be getting on with things, but if you take ‘time’ out of the equation and focus more on changing your thinking about the situation then ‘time’ will not be the main issue……you just have to change your thinking. You see it’s all really about THINK, FEEL, DO – let me explain. Your thinking comes first, which then determines how you feel which is then followed by what you do, so if you don’t like what you’re doing or how you’re feeling change the way you think.
I want to encourage you to really think about what you’re thinking before you respond to anything in your life. When you are in a high mood you will be thinking good thoughts and good feelings and behaviour will follow. When you are in a high mood you are much better equipped to tap into your true wisdom and you will find it much easier to come up with the solution to any problems you have.
Hopefully this post will give you some food for thought.
“When you’re in a high mood, life looks good. You have perspective and common sense.” (Richard Carlson)
I encourage you today to think your way out of a low mood and into a high mood, then respond to what needs done, I am sure you will get much better results all round.
Since January last year I have been making a lot of changes in my life, the inner changes came first and then the outer changes started to happen. I decided that before I made any outer changes I ensured I was happy on the inside first, so I did a lot of work on my “soul development” and I truly feel more like,well, “me”. 🙂
One of the changes that I wanted to make and was genuinely excited to make, was changing my hair colour from black to blonde and I want to share with you a photo of the transformation process (below). I love my new blonde look, it hasn’t made me any happier from within because I was already happy but it has given me a renewed and re-energised feeling – “out with the old and in with the new” and I feel really great.
I love my hairdresser, I think she did a really great job as it has been a long process to get there over a 6 week period, thank you Yvonne Lennon Holton and such a great friend too.
What do you think of my new blonde look?
I want you to think about this, before you make any external changes in your life think about how happy you feel first on the inside. I urge you to make the inside changes first and then you know that any external changes you make after that, will be an added bonus to your already happy self.
Wishing you a day filled with inner happiness and contentment, lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.
I have a lovely feeling of peace and contentment flowing through my body this morning, I am aware of it and treasure it right now. I just had to write, here is what came out. I hope you enjoy. May your happy spirit touch other hearts today. Love Clarabelle
Peace in her Heart
She woke up, with peace in her heart today
No inner battles, in her way
The fight has gone, war no more
Everything leads, to the fulfilment door
Now it’s different, now she can see
That an opened heart, will let this be
She knows that her gift, travels afar
She knows that her energy, raises the bar
And as the soft wind blows, contentment plays a tune
Happiness in the air, goodnight Mr Moon
This misty morning, is full of white
She feels its presence, she is the light
Her breath is silent, and simply pure
Because she is so certain, she is so sure
That all her dreams, are alive inside
The vision is here, nothing to hide
For her soul is connected, dancing free
Her spirit is full, of happy energy
But who is, this miracle she?
She can be “he” and she is “me”
