Bounce Back to Happiness

Bounce Back to Happiness

The book of life brings its fair share of ups and downs – one day you’re flying and the next day you could be sinking.  I want to talk about the latter today because it’s so easy to be happy when you’re flying, when everything is in flow and you’re scoring every goal – that’s amazing. It isn’t so easy when you hit a huge road block and everything going on around you seems to be getting in the way of progress.  Progress is a great feeling, it’s motivating, encouraging and uplifting but that “stuck” feeling can be a complete nightmare for you. So how do you bounce back to happiness when your heart is heavy, your mind is fuzzy and your body feels drained?  Well, you have to come up with your own strategies to deal with each one differently, let me explain.

  • Think about what will help you lighten the load of a heavy heart and channel your energy into something more encouraging for you.  Yes, it’s time to stop wallowing on what hurt you and time to visualise bright positive images that will help you move past the pain.
  • Adopt some strategies that will help you gain clarity and clear that fuzzy mind, where does your new focus need to be?  You won’t find any answers in a dusty brain, take yourself out of the situation, give yourself a little shine then revisit your next move – what will this be for you?
  • Feed your body with goodness and put into practice daily habits and rituals that will renew your energy, uplift your spirits and make you feel radiant again. Only you can help yourself here.

In the process of applying the above strategies you might feel like giving up, you might feel like saying “stuff this, I’ve had enough” but the only way you will make a full recovery and bounce back is to do things that will help yourself and I mean for the long term. Quick fixes will not help you build true resilience, so chip away at your bad habits and replace them with “stay strong” rituals.

Take true ownership and responsibility of where you’re at and make a decision today to face that road block and bounce back to happiness.

You can do it, you can.

It’s your life, go get it!!

I Spied With My Little Eye

I spied with my little eye,
Something beginning with me.
I looked at my life,
And discovered the vision I see.
It was colourful and bright,
All I wanted it to be.
Dancing and Smiling forever,
Like waves of gratitude in the sea.
I spied with my little eye,
Something beginning with happy.

New Now New You

Why wait for the New Year to come before you makes positive changes in your life. Forget “New Year New You”, think and apply my new motto,

New Now New You

Change now, why wait?

Happy love to you, Clarabelle

I’m Free

I’m free,
As the air I breathe.
I’m happy,
Like an autumn leaf.
I’m loved,
Like the moon so bright,
I’m peaceful,
In a starry night.
I’m smiling,
As my dreams come true.
I’m here,
Always believing in you.

Sprinkles of Dreams

Sprinkles of Dreams

They sparkle,
I smile with delight.
Loving hands,
Glowing in the light.

They tell a story,
Of hope and truth,
Like the charming spirit,
Of a child’s fairy tooth.

They touch another,
A soft gentle caress,
Washing away problems,
Sorting out the mess.

And glistening in my palm,
The miracle dust holds,
Sprinkles of dreams,
As my passion unfolds.

Get a Plan that Works

I have a plan, a vision, a strong desire for changing things for myself for the better and you know what, the plan is working, it is starting to show me results in the areas I am wanting them.

I think it really does go to show, that you get more of what you focus upon, this is so true. You do have to put the work in though, but if it’s a strong passionate desire you’re working towards, then the work is never an issue and often the work is a complete joy.

I have a plan, a BIG plan and it’s working.

I urge you today to get yourself a plan, and then put it into daily action, yes, moment to moment, go to work on your plan – it may take some time but you will get there, believe me, YOU WILL.

What does your action plan look like?

I feel a Christmas Miracle,

Snowy Cairngorms, Scotland, A Wintry Wonderland

I had indeed a very very beautiful 2. 5 hour walk yesterday in amongst the snowy mountains of the Cairngorms, it was absolutely beautiful and to top it all off I spotted a stunning little doe deer, it was such a lovely surprise. I took a 1 minute video almost 2 hours into my journey. Look at how stunning Bonny Scotland is.

Mr and Mrs Snowman

A little Christmas festive poem to you from me. May Christmas spirit rejoice in your heart forever.

Mr and Mrs Snowman

There was a competition,
Whose snowman was the best.
All the villagers took part,
This was a frosty test.

Snowmen of different sizes,
Displayed a smiley face.
They stood there icy proud,
In this marshmallow place.

But one thing that stood out,
Oh so very clear.
Was all of the snowmen,
Were alone this Christmas Year.

How can you build a snowman,
All alone in this town.
That’s not very fair,
His heart will have a frown.

No snowman should be lonely,
At this Christmas time.
They should be with another,
Sharing mistletoe and wine.

Then in the corner,
A house on a quiet spot.
Had two snowmen standing,
Beside a tiny tot.

Why do you have two,
Snowmen standing tall?
One is a lady she said,
Both going to the snowman ball.

Oh little one,
How beautiful that is.
Mr and Mrs Snowman,
Can share a Christmas kiss.

See them holding hands,
She whispers in the air
Mr and Mrs Snowman,
Now have each other to care.

The people they all smiled,
For indeed their hearts did melt.
This little bundle of joy,
Revealed feelings they never felt.

You are the winner,
A snowman trophy goes to you.
You ignited Christmas spirit,
Removing lonely by building two.

Thank you she said,
This is a happy day.
Now we’re all happy together,
Like one big family.

Mr and Mrs Snowman,
Were built to live together.
May the story of who made them,
Live in your heart forever.

Things Not Moving Fast Enough For You?

Things not moving fast enough for you? Then I guess the Universe feels you’re not quite ready yet for the amazing success that is chapping at your door.

“But I’m ready to answer, right now” I hear you say. Well what are you going to do about it? What?

You know there is always something you can do, I know you know that. Go on then answer, but please make sure you open the right door.

“How will I know?”

Because it’s the one that you are most excited about opening, the one that makes you truly come alive inside…….yes, that’s the door you must open.

Open the door to your dreams.

Love, Clarabelle

In The Eye of a Needle

New Year

I am in poetic flow at the moment, this one’s for you.  Sometimes I don’t know what these poems mean, I wonder what they mean to you?

In the Eye of a Needle

In the eye of a needle,
My soul breathes deep.
I see my heart,
Secrets I keep.

I bury my mind,
In a tunnel of love.
A cave with no light.
Blue sky with no dove.

It’s beyond the horizon,
Seems so far away.
Yet closer than I think,
Honest whispers I pray.

And on a misty morn,
The freshness I feel.
Both of us together,
This dream is real.

I hold out my hand,
Please take it with care.
A nurtured passion,
Leaves my soul stripped bare.

By Clarabelle

I Didn’t Know This!!

IMG_3575.PNG

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

Do It With Pride

You're a Star

Celebrate how far you’ve come and welcome the journey of tomorrow.  Today is your blessing, today be grateful for everything you have achieved so far, you’ve done good you know, you’ve done real good!! This poem’s for you.

Do It With Pride

The bells’s ringing,
I’m ready to go
Are you with me?
Bring on the show.

Smiles in your pocket
Hope on your back
Plough through all weathers
Get back on track

Start where you are
Think always good
Be kind to yourself
Don’t say “should”

Come on my friend
You’re almost there
One more step
A little more care

Concentrate, focus
Have faith in your stride
Go a little further
Do it with pride.

By Clarabelle

Hey You

Hey you, I feel you need a little reminder of how far you’ve already come…..this poem is perfectly timed for you.

Hey You

Hey you,
Don’t give up
Be strong now
Fill up your cup
With happy thoughts
Love for the dream
On your own
Or one of the team
You can do it
Turn around
No going back
Up of the ground
Moment by moment
Day by day
You’re getting closer
You’ll win this way.
