The Greatest Surprise

kind heart and thoughtfulness

I have realised that when I know about an amazing event, activity or gift coming my way, the level of excited anticipation can reach a good 8 out of 10. However, when I am unexpectedly surprised by the kindness of others – even something like someone giving me a surprise cup of coffee – that excitment is, quite simply, off the scale! The elation that I feel when this happens it truly unbelieveable!

I promise you, it’s not really about the actual material thing that has amazingly come into my existence. It’s actually about the kind heart and thoughtfulness of the other person that puts me in this state of elation. The fact that that person took the time out of their day to think about me and show their beautiful heart through kindness.

I believe, the greatest surprise we can all offer someone, is the gift of the human spirit.

Which means, YOU, my dearest YOU, are the most precious gift of them all.

Lots of £50 Notes…

fifty pounds

Giving Off Happy Vibes

I was at the Post Office this morning posting some Christmas cards and parcels to friends at home and abroad.  The person serving at the Post Office Counter, if I’m very honest, is usually almost always “grumpy”, I never really look forward to being served by him. However, this morning was different, today he was smiling, he was chirpy, he was definitely giving off “happy vibes”.  I smiled at him as I approached the counter and he happily took all my Christmas cards and parcels, weighed them etc.. and charged for them.  I was smiling at him the whole way through being served and saying “thank you”. He was really happy, I could tell, then he said “Can I help you with anything else?”, I said “Yes, I would like to take out £50 from my bank account but only if you have a £50 note”. He smiled and said that they wouldn’t normally have £50 notes but someone had come in earlier today and paid for something with lots of £50 notes.  He said therefore he could give me a £50 note and then, to my complete surprise, said he would go through all the £50 notes and give me the BEST, freshest, newest looking one.  I didn’t ask him to do that, he offered and I smiled very happily back at him and said “great, thank you so much”.

Blown Away

We had a short little chat about nice new money notes then he gave me my £50 note, smiled, said thank you and wished me a good day.  I was blown away, I would never have expected him to say this to me before now, I wished him the best day ever and I hopped happily out of the shop.

I felt so good after that interaction with this person, it just goes to show the difference we can make to another person’s life by just being pleasant, well mannered and giving off “happy vibes”.

Wherever you are in the world today remember the impact you have on others, so please make it a positive one, you just might make someone’s day.

Lots of love to you today and always, Clarabelle.

Santa’s Secrets

Christmas Holidays

There is something magical in the air at Christmas time, I just feel a different vibe – for me it is filled with love and it really feels so special and beautiful.  May you have an abundance of love in your life over the Christmas Holidays.  Mistletoe kisses from Clarabelle.

Santa's Secrets

Santa’s Secrets

Sweet kisses, around the Christmas tree,

Snowflakes sparkle, on you and me.

Santa’s secrets, whispered in my ear,

Reindeer dance, in the sky, with no fear.

The moon is whiter, than the shimmering snow,

The icy waters, glisten and glow.

The eve of Christmas, in all its glory,

Awakens the human spirit, what a loving story.
