On the pathway to your dreams you are most certainly going to have to get over some rough patches. There may be a cluster of them all at once or more sporadic than that, over a lengthier period of time, but regardless they will be there, eager to put you to the challenge.
Are you up for the challenge? I surely am, it’s only a “rough patch”, how rough can it get?
Like stormy waters or a rocky road, these challenges make your adventure even more worthwhile because there are many lessons in these hidden bumps.
See if you can change your perception towards the rough patches of life, see them as part of the mystery, as part of the muscle building process for your inner strength. These so called rough patches, strengthen your character and prepare you for the mountain ahead. How big is your mountain? You see, I reckon if it’s not big enough, if it’s not scary enough, then you need a bigger, much higher mountain to climb and that means a bigger more ambitious vision for yourself.
My mountain climb is scary but scary in a good way, the challenge excites me and I see myself, ALWAYS getting to the top…..I am happiest climbing the mountain, especially when I look back and see how far I have come – wow did I really make that journey?
WOW yourself today with your big mountain climb challenge, go on, I dare you!!
Happier days are now, love to you, Clarabelle
In my day job when I am coaching I often work with people on how to identify what they want in life. This can be a difficult one for some people because it isn’t always obvious for them, for many different reasons.
There is one coaching tool that I use which often gets great results for the person and I would like to share it with you here today so you can try it, if you wish. I call this the “What I Want” Table (see photo below).
Take a blank piece of paper (see photo below) and head it up “What I Want“. State underneath this what life area you want to focus on for e.g. “Health”. Draw a table with two columns. On the left hand column, write the heading, “What I Don’t Want” and the right hand column, write the heading, “What I Want”.
People struggling to identify what they want in life often find it easier to start with what they DON’T want in that area of their life.
Complete the left hand column first for e.g. what you don’t want to think, feel, do and experience in this specific area of your life and then write down the contrast of that on the right column, i.e. “What I Want”, i.e. what I do want to think, feel, do and experience.
This is a really simple but effective process in helping you identify what you want by thinking about what you don’t want first. It can make identifying the “What I Want” process a whole lot easier for you.
Your BIG Why
It is also really important to have a big enough reason as to WHY you want to achieve that goal in the first place, why is it so important for you to achieve and it must also be in alignment with your core values.
If you are struggling to think about what you want in life, please try the above process and let me know if it works for you. This process really works for me and for some of the people I coach but it is important to know that we are all different and just because this process works for me it doesn’t mean it will work for you. But hey, I say, please give it a go and tell me what you think.
Much love to you today, Clarabelle
Don’t let life pass you by, do all you can to make it a great life, think about who or what inspires your soul, what connects your spirit to another dimension, what gives you that feeling of excitement inside……..hold on to that thought, embrace that special feeling because that’s who you are, that’s what makes you YOU.
There is a special something inside of you, a precious gift that is waiting to be unwrapped, unfold it gently and release its magic into the Universe. I see it now, I see you sparkling and glistening, touching other happy spirits and uplifting the temporary broken ones.
Close your eyes right now, feel that special gift inside of you, let this unique feeling penetrate every part of your being, let it flow, let it out, let it dance with the stars under the moonlit sky……your light is special, like no other light, let it glow.
I know you are smiling now, you feel it, you believe it, now let the people of this world welcome it with open arms.
May you have a truly magical weekend, only you can make it magical, do it and don’t let life pass you by.
Thank you Universe for making this a truly MAGICAL weekend for me and for you.
Much love to you today, as always, Clarabelle

Gratitude has such a magical power, it is more powerful than you could ever imagine, it has the power to change you from within and in doing so change the environment around you. Feel very blessed for everything you have in your life right now, deliberately be grateful for it all, you will then know what I am talking about because you too will be holding the magic in your heart.
I am forever grateful to you for reading these posts and joining me on the path of gratitude.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Lots of love Clarabelle 🙂
