I Didn’t Know This!!

I didn’t know it, I honestly didn’t know this, for the best part of my life, I didn’t know this……I just didn’t.

Well, what is it, that I didn’t know?

I didn’t know that I could write, I didn’t know that I would want to write, I didn’t know that I was passionate about writing, until I started writing.  I mean really started writing, regularly, consistently and being inspired to write on this blog.

It’s not that I didn’t write before, sure I’ve wrote many policies and procedures, I’ve written University Assignments, I’ve written Board Reports, I’ve written Client Summary Reports but and I mean a BIG BUT, to me, although they obviously were writing, they weren’t freedom writing, they weren’t my heart speaking and flowing with inspiring graciousness.

So to me there is “writing” and there is “real writing” and I am now captivated in the latter.

I am 41 years young now and I started this Clarabelle Blog at the age of 38, wow, has it really taken that long for me to hear my calling, for me to really truly listen to the whispers of my heart??  WOW!!

I guess it has…………………..and you know what, it doesn’t matter when in life you discover what your calling is, what’s more important is that you respond positively and do what your heart is telling you to do and in my case, I guess, it is writing……writing like this, yes, just like this, nothing too fancy, nothing too wordy, keeping it simple but full of inspirational wisdom with a poetic verse thrown in for good measure.

Isn’t life kinda funny, one minute you think you’re headed on one path and all of a sudden, something happens and you’re nudged up another path (notice I said “up” not “down”)!!  Cos we’re on our way up here, right!!

I wonder what your heart is whispering to you…..I wonder?  Do you wonder, or do you know the answer already to that one?  I really hope you do and you are acting upon it.

Lots of love to you today, as always, Clarabelle

A Happy Place

True Beauty

The Heart

Your mind may be jam-packed with worries today but I want you to know that you can always be happy because there is always a happy place in your heart.  The heart will always win over a busy mind, if you let it.  So relax the mind today, even if it’s just for 15 minutes and take yourself to the core of your happiness…..I’ll meet you there 🙂 .  Love Clarabelle

A Happy Place

There’s a happy place, in your heart
It’s off the scale, off the chart

No one can see it, only you can feel
Feel its magic, it is so real

It’s always there, wanting to play
Wanting to smile and laugh each day

Wanting to give, and show kindness too
Bringing joy and great treasures to you

This happy place, has no door
It’s breathing true life, into your core

It keeps you well, it keeps you strong
This happy place, is your winning song

So close your eyes, relax to the sound
Your happy heartbeat, is truly profound

What does your ‘Now’ & ‘Future’ look like?

Self Discovery

The pathway to self discovery can be approached in many ways and I am great believer that you should always choose the best way that works for you, because we are very different.  One of the approaches that I use, is sometimes I will answer a question by drawing a picture, let me explain further.

Yesterday I was in reflective mode and I decided to draw a picture of my life ‘Now’ and my life in the ‘Future’.  I never have a specific image in mind I just start drawing, I draw what feels right for e.g. the colours, the symbols…. what’s important to me at the time is how they feel not necessarily what they look like visually. As you can see below my drawing skills are not really to be desired 🙂 but I don’t do it for that, I do it for the meaningful connection that I believe comes from the source of my being.  I know this may sound a little far fetched or even a little crazy to some but I know these drawings have meanings and even if I don’t understand them completely right now, I always find out later what they have meant.  So below I will share with you the drawing I drew yesterday of my ‘Now’ (left) and my ‘Future’ (right), what do they mean to you?  I would really love to know what you think.  Why don’t you even give it a go yourself.

Much love to you today as always, Clarabelle.
