Happy Happy New Year

Happy Happy New Year to you, right now, I am celebrating the birth of 2014 in Manchester City Centre with one of my best friend’s, Sharon.  I love to get away now and again and I love the energy that a City can bring, that happy vibe and beauty of the City lights at night. So in happy celebration of the beginning of this new year, I dedicate this new year poem to you. Thank you for being here and I look forward sharing my heart’s wisdom with throughout 2014, on this blog.  Love Clarabelle.

Forever Happiness

I wish for you,
forever happiness.
Lots of love,
and much success.
Dreams you feel,
close in your heart.
Lots of smiles,
may sadness depart.
I wish for you,
a happy new year.
Everything you want,
facing the fear.
This is the time,
to show you are strong,
This Happy New Year,
Is where you belong.

I’ll do it tomorrow!!

comfort-zone-quote1.jpg

“I’ll do it tomorrow”

“I’ll do it tomorrow”, I hear you say……not that I wish you any heartache or misfortune because that is absolutely NOT the point here, but what if tomorrow didn’t come…..what if you were beamed up into a strange distant land today and never had the opportunity to come back to earth again.  I would miss you, other people would miss you and who and what would you miss?

Do what you feel.

We often go through life thinking “I would like to do that” but more often than not, we don’t do anything about it or we’ll say “it can wait”.  Don’t over think things, just do, do what you feel, right then, right there in that moment, because as soon as you starting thinking too much, before you know it, you’ve changed your mind and maybe you’ve missed out on the greatest moment of your life, like telling someone “I love you”, you should never think too much about that one.

The Last Day of this Year

Please use the last day of this year wisely, let it end with a special loving memory that will live in your heart forever.  Do what you need to do, do what you want to do, do that one thing you’ve always desired to do, make a commitment right now to do it…..don’t say “I’ll do it tomorrow”, just do now.

Make this day special, make this day great and please tell me all about it.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

New Beginnings Meet Happy endings

Clarabelle Quotes, When a rainbow smiles

A New Year is Coming

A new year is coming, this is a great time for you to decide to make positive changes in your life, you can’t turn the clock back anyway so you might as well look forward to a brighter future where new beginnings meet happy endings.

What do you want your new beginning to be?  

What do you want your happy ending to be?  

Just Decide

Just decide, make a plan and do…..go on, do it, I know you want to.  Think about how good it will feel when you have achieved it, yes it might be hard work but when you overcome those daily challenges it will uplift your spirits and make you feel great inside. Progress is a wonderful thing, even if it’s just baby steps to achieving a better a life, a better you, when you look back you’ll see how far you have come.

The Birth of a New Year

The birth of a new year is a new opportunity to strengthen yourself from within and achieve all that your heart desires.

I’m on my way to my happy ending, see you at the rainbow’s end.  Lots of love to you today and always, Clarabelle.

Best Memories in 2014

Christmas Tree

Better Memories in 2014

It’s good to reflect on the past year, What did you learn? Who did you meet that you didn’t know before? What were your best moments of 2013?  This next New Year poem is all about those reflections and taking the best memories and making even better memories in 2014.  Lots of love to you for a prosperous and very Happy New Year, love Clarabelle.

2014

Reflect on the year gone by,
Think of the lessons and why.
What was the best time of all?
What made you smile and break down the wall?
Who made it memorable, just for you?
Who held your hand, when you were feeling blue?
This year will soon go to bed,
And 2014 will raise its happy head.
So I wish you good fortune and beautiful days.
As 2013 fades into the haze.

I hope you had the most beautiful Christmas Day and that you are feeling very grateful for the loved ones you have in your life right now.  Christmas is over for another year and I want to now shift focus on this blog to celebrating the abundance that is coming to you in the new year ahead.

Happy New Year

The end of the year,
is just close by,

So let’s raise a glass,
and end it on a high.

Did it all go according to plan,
or did it end, just as it began? 

The hopes, the dreams you made for the year,
did they come true or are they still here?

So let’s look forward to 2014,
stick to your plan and follow your dream.

Be happy and healthy, stay strong and be clear,
and do whatever you can, to make it a successful  year.

What’s So Special About Christmas Day?

Merry Christmas

A Very Merry Christmas To You

A very Merry Christmas to you, may today bring endless love to your heart, treasured dreams to your soul and forever happiness to your beautiful spirit.  Whatever is going on in your life today, put any sadness on hold for the next 24 hours and let love, fun and laughter swell your heart with gratitude and the magic of Christmas.  Today is filled with many miracles, they are surrounding you right now on this Christmas Day, close your eyes, open your heart and feel them.  Christmas Day is so very special and so are you, believe that and let your heart smile inside.

What’s So Special About Christmas Day?

What’s so special, about Christmas Day?
Why all the hype? I hear you say.
Why celebrate, on the 25th of December?
Why is this date, one to remember?

I’ll tell you what Christmas, means to me,
It’s a day filled with love, to spend with family.
A time to rejoice and have faith in all good,
A time for unity, in your neighbourhood.

Christmas will come, and Christmas will go,
But to ignore this present, is like a heart with no glow.
Because Christmas is a gift, so special and true,
It’s like falling in love, the bond needs no glue.

So breathe in life, on this Christmas morn,
Smile through any heartache, be glad you are born.
Believe you are loved, forever and a day.
You are held in many hearts, as Angels pray.

And the candle that burns, is shining so bright,
Sending you warmth, like a healing light.
Unwrapping your heart, melting the freeze.
Breaking the chains, with a soft gentle breeze.

Capture this day, let the memories free you soul,
A new year is dawning, where you’ll reach every goal.
So celebrate early, rejoice this Christmas Day,
Have faith and believe, only good is coming your way. 

Merry Merry Christmas to YOU from Clarabelle

On This Christmas Eve

Christmas in New York

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve has fallen upon us, may you have the sweetest love of others around you this Christmas time.  Day 24 and I share with you this next Christmas Poem, “On This Christmas Eve”, I hope you enjoy. Christmas love to you today, Clarabelle.

On This Christmas Eve

Do I hear Santa outside my house?

He’s very noisy, not quiet like a mouse.

I hear his footsteps, in the snow,

I hear him sing, ho, ho, ho.

I hope he thinks, that I’m asleep,

I tried counting sheep, like little Bo’ peep.

But excitement and fun, took over me,

I do love you Santa, please let me see.

I want to give you, a great big hug,

I want to tell you, I’ve left milk in your mug.

I want to sleigh ride, high in the sky,

Waving down at the snowmen, as we pass by.

My dearest Santa, you bring great joy,

To every family, and little girl and boy.

You make me smile, on this Christmas Eve,

Can you stay Santa?  Please don’t leave.

I’ve got lots to tell you, for I’ve been good,

Please don’t eat the carrots, that’s Rudolph’s food.

I put a gift, under the Christmas tree

It’s for you Santa, especially from me.

I’ll Never Stop Missing You

Christmas Candle

The Eve of Christmas Eve

Welcome to the eve of Christmas Eve and Day 23 of sharing a Christmas Poem with you. We all miss loved ones at Christmas who can’t be with us but they are always on our minds, even more so at this time of year.  This next Christmas Poem is a precious sentiment to all our loved ones who can’t be here in body but I am sure are with us in spirit, every part of this Christmas Day.  Lots of love to you this Christmas.

I’ll Never Stop Missing You

I’ll never stop missing you,
At Christmas and the whole year through.
You’re in my heart, everywhere I go,
In my tears, when I feel low.
Only because I want you here,
To hold you tight, to have you near.
Just one more time, to see your face,
To hug you close in a warm embrace.
When you did go, darkness fell,
You went to heaven, earth felt like hell.
I battled I struggled, my heart was torn,
You were always there, from the day I was born.
And even though, time has past,
I remember our chats, forever they’d last.
The fun times we had, walking together,
Hail, rain or snow, whatever the weather.
Christmas is upon us and I want you to know,
When I look above, I know you show.
I know you’re here, every step of the way,
Every move I make, every whisper I pray.
I love you more, than you’ll ever know,
Beyond the stars, beyond their glow.
And on this Christmas morn, my heart does smile,
You want me to be happy, forever and a while.
So I’ll take a deep breath, and rejoice this Christmas Day,
Because that’s what you’d want, I can hear you say.
So when I see little Robin, chirping at me.
I know it’s a symbol that you are free.

May All Your Christmas Dreams Come True

A very warm and loving welcome to Day 22 of sharing a Christmas Poem with you. Below is another beautiful poem for you to enjoy this Christmas time, it speaks of truth from my heart and soul.  You are very special, each and every one of you and if you’re missing someone very special in your life right now, the words may resonate with you. May all your Christmas Dreams come true.  Love Clarabelle

Christmas Dreams

I think of you, only you,
You’re floating in my head.

I wonder what you’re doing this Christmas,
As I lie here in my bed.

I dream of this, I dream of that,
But one thing is for sure,
When you are in my Christmas dreams,
All sadness you do cure.

I know you might be smiling now,
A wee chuckle in your heart.
But it’s how I get through my Christmas day,
When we are apart.

But patience is a virtue,
And when the time is right,
We’ll be snuggled up together,
And hugging all through the night.

Please take this little poem,
A Christmas gift to you from me.
Whispers from my soul.
Secrets that Santa can’t see.

Cos even when I’m quiet,
Silent Night holds the key,
Filling the space with Christmas love,
Unleashing more of “you & me”

You are very special,
Lovely in every way,
 I’m excited to see you again,
At Christmas and every waking day.

Christmas Eve

Woo hoo Day 18 already of sharing a Christmas Poem with you every day until Christmas Day.  Some of us have loved ones who live far away from us, but they make that special trip to visit us at Christmas time.  This next Christmas poem is all about that, about the excitement of loved ones arriving for the festivities on Christmas Eve.  Wishing you a wonderful time with your close family and friends this Christmas.  Love Clarabelle

On Christmas Eve

Love from a distance,
breaks my heart.
When we’re not together,
when we are apart.

But on Christmas Eve,
you’ll arrive with a smile,
So loving and caring,
we’ll hug for a while.

I get excited,
when I think of you.
I feel you here,
do you feel me too?

Usually Santa Claus,
is the star of the show.
But in my eyes,
it’s always you, you know.

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.

True Friends at Christmas

It is so lovely to receive an unexpected call from a true friend at Christmas time.  I am just off the phone from a really good friend of mine who moved away from Scotland this year and it was so lovely to hear her voice and chat and laugh with her.  This has inspired this Day 14 Christmas Poem.  Go on, pick up the phone today and give a true friend some warm Christmas Love.  Clarabelle

Friends at Christmas

Friends at Christmas,
are so special and true.
A chat full of joy,
through and through.
We talk of good times,
we laugh a lot.
We think of Christmas,
and all we’ve got.
Friends at Christmas,
are so precious to me.
Phone a friend this Christmas,
and let true friendship be.

Pink Fluffy Hat

I treated myself to a very cosy pink faux fur hat at the weekend, I saw it, loved it, tried it on, bought it and wore it straight away – “no bag please, I’m just going to wear it”.  Below is a recent photo of me in my new winter’s hat.

Clarabelle wearing her new pink hat.

So this has inspired my Christmas Poem for Day 12.  I do hope you like it, it’s just a little sweet fun one.

Christmas is the Best

Christmas is fun,
for everyone.
Smiles in our eyes,
a happy surprise.
A pink fluffy hat,
wear it like that.
A champagne drink,
a mistletoe wink.
Love and joy,
a funny toy.
Christmas is the best,
it beats all the rest.

Christmas Comes But Once A Year

Christmas comes but once a year

The sleigh bells ring and Santa’s here

The tinsel, the tree for all to see

The presents we gave one for you, one for me

So let’s raise a glass to the year gone by

Did you laugh, did you cry or did it end on a high?

So all the best for 2014 to happiness and health

and to following your dream.

Christmas Poems for Your Cards

Regular visitors to this blog will know that since the first of December I have been creating a Christmas Poem everyday for you up until Christmas Day.  Today I want to share with you a Christmas Poem that you could write in a Christmas Card and give to your beautiful mum.  It’s always nice to add that personal touch, it is so much more precious and meaningful.  So today’s little poem is short enough to go into your Mum’s Christmas Card. I made this poem especially for my own Mum’s Christmas Card, which I also designed too.  I hope you like it and please feel free to use it in your Christmas Card for your lovely mum this Christmas and I am also very happy for you to share this with others. Lots of love Clarabelle.

Video Poem: The New Me

Which Way Now?

Vision Wall

You deserve the best in life, you deserve to have everything you have ever wanted and I definitely believe that is so possible.  This next poem below was created by me after I completed my Vision Wall, way back in 2012.  If you want to know more about how to create your very own Vision Wall to empower you to make positive changes in your life, then please click on this link: https://clarabelle.org/personal-development/vision-wall/

The New Me

I can honestly the words in this poem “The New Me” definitely ring true for me and I am happy to say that I feel that I am “The New Me” – not a different person but just more of who I really am…..I suppose you could say I have come home.  I do hope you enjoy it and thinking ahead to the New Year, creating your very own Vision Wall might just give you the push that you need to turn your dreams into reality.

The New Me

I searched for, 

the new me,

 My treasure trove,

revealed it to be.

A vision of faith,

I believe in it all,

Empowering language,

on my vision wall.

It focuses on,

the inside out,

The language is powerful,

I hear it shout.

Go on, stand out

from the crowd,

Make a positive start,

feel very proud.

So I welcome you,

to try it one day,

Create your vision

and go your own way.

Christmas Welcome

A very warm Christmas welcome to Day 6 of my Christmas poems leading up to Christmas Day. I do hope you like the next one, it may make you think about the precious love that surrounds you at Christmastime, embrace it with open arms because you are very blessed indeed.

On Christmas Morn

She looked out of the window,
on Christmas Day.
She remembered her past,
a time to pray.

For now she is older,
she is eighty three,
and sits alone,
there’s no “you and me”.

She had a love,
a husband that cared,
They loved Christmas,
everything was shared.

But he passed away,
10 years ago.
She remembers his smile,
and them dancing in the snow.

She isn’t sad,
she doesn’t feel lonely.
She is grateful for this life,
and her one and only.

She misses him much,
he’s always in her thoughts,
On Christmas morn,
He’d say “I love you lots”.

She awaits her carriage,
her wonderful son.
Who is so special,
he looks after his mum.

Today she is part of,
a family filled with joy.
With 4 happy grandchildren,
3 girls and a boy.

She loves them dearly,
they are her life.
A special Gran, a loving mother,
and in her heart a happy wife.

She tells them stories,
of times gone by.
She laughs with her grandchildren,
and enjoys a mince pie.

She feels amazing,
so precious and true,
To my hubby in heaven,
I will always love you.

Christmas Poetry, Day 5

A warm festive welcome to Day 5 of my Christmas poetry.  Everyday between now and Christmas Day I will share with you a happy Christmas poem.  I hope you enjoy today’s Christmas poem, called “Go Santa Go”.

Go Santa Go

Go Santa go,
Ride through the snow.
Come to my house,
Be as quiet as a mouse.

Go Santa go,
Let Rudolph glow.
His nose so bright.
A happy guiding light.

Go Santa go,
I love you, you know.
In your cosy red suit,
Coming down the chimney shoot.

Go Santa go,
Singing ho, ho, ho.
You are magic all around,
Snowy footprints on the ground.

Go Santa go,
I’ve left you 3 in a row.
Milk, carrots and a warm mince pie.
See you next year Santa, with love, goodbye.

Feelings of joy,

The Magic of Christmas,

A jewel at night.
Blessed in this beauty,
On this Christmas night.

Together as one,
Nothing else matters.
Laughing and giggling,
As mad as hatters.

A mistletoe kiss,
The warmest cuddle.
Under snowy rooftops,
and an ice freezing puddle,

Christmas is bliss,
Because of you.
You’re my Christmas wish.
so special and true.

Christmas Poetry: I Miss You Forever

 

 Christmas Tree

Christmas Poem

Every day between now and Christmas I am going to share a Christmas Poem with you. The one below speaks from my heart this Christmas time.

Loved Ones

Christmas is a beautiful time to spend with your family and close friends and this is often a time when you also think about your loved ones who can’t be with you right now and I know you can relate to that, just like me.

This next Christmas poem is all about that and this one is dedicated to my Wonderful Dad in heaven, “I Miss You Forever”.

I Miss You Forever

I miss you forever,
forever and a day.
But it seems to get harder,
when Christmas comes our way.

I think of your smile,
I think of your love.
When Christmas is with us,
And you are above.

Kindness is in the air,
All I want to give to you.
Is the biggest ever hug,
This is what I’d do.

If only Santa Claus,
Could make my dreams come true.
We’d be putting up the tree,
Instead, I’m feeling blue.

But Christmas is upon us,
and you are in my heart.
Shining like a beacon,
Flowing through every part.

I miss you forever,
and on this Christmas Day.
I love you more than you’ll ever know.
And in my heart for you I pray.

Poetry: Christmas Bells

Christmas in New York

Christmas Poetry

Every day between now and Christmas Day I am going to make up a poem for you and share it here on this Clarabelle Blog.  If you would like to inspire one of the Christmas poems or better still, if you want create a special Christmas poem for this blog, then please just let me know on the comments section below. Poems can be about anything related to Christmas, for example, you might want one of the Christmas poems to be about a Snowman or Father Christmas or Christmas Candles or Christmas Love….whatever you want, please just let me know.  I can’t promise that I will be able to include everyone’s Christmas poems or ideas but I will do my very best to capture what I can. Here is the first one for you:

Christmas Bells

The sound of love,
The sound of joy.
Giggles and smiles,
From every girl and boy.

The sound of hope,
The sound of fun.
Christmas bells ring,
Uplifting everyone.

Treasure this time,
Play in the snow.
With Christmas jingles,
And Santa on show.

Let the tree,
Light up the room.
Give warmth this Christmas
Let the Christmas flowers bloom.

Oh Mr Snowman

Festive Spirit

I seem to be getting into the festive spirit already and accordingly to the recent UK weather forecast there will be plenty of opportunity over the next few months to make as many snowmen as we want.  I hope you like this Family Christmas Poem below, it is from my latest eBook, “It’s All About Christmas”.  Sending you some early Christmas love, Clarabelle

Snowman
A young Clarabelle, Age 10, (2nd from right) with friends from School.

Oh Mr Snowman

Don’t believe a snowman,
Has no heart inside.
Because he was built,
By a child with pride.

He was a dream,
A vision of fun.
He brought the family together,
And lives in everyone.

Oh Mr Snowman,
You stand still, with a smile.
I could look at you forever,
Come walk with me for a mile.

Oh how I wish,
That could be true.
We’d be dancing and laughing,
Yes, snowballs fight too.

So when the snow comes,
In the big icy freeze.
Your snowman’s heart, lives in you,
Remember this please.

Birthday Wishes

Clarabelle & Friends
Clarabelle & Friends

I celebrated by 40th birthday in Edinburgh this weekend and I had a lovely time with my bestest friends.  It got me thinking about birthday wishes.  What is a wish really and does it hold more depth of meaning on your birthday?.….You know, that moment of precious thought and hope just before you blow the birthday candles out, in the photo below, I was thinking of that….that special birthday wish, the secrets of my soul, the desires of my heart and all that.  What did I wish for?  Well, it has always been tradition to not share your birthday wish with anyone, because if you did then it might not come true.

My birthday wish this year was very general, not too specific but something I feel is also really achievable.  I will stick to tradition and not share it….just yet, actually, now that I think about it, in that very moment captured in this photograph below I believe I have it….yes, indeed I do truly have it – I wonder if you can guess what it is?  I wonder if it actually shows, can you see, can you feel it, can you tell I already have it?

Claire
Clarabelle’s 40th Birthday

 

 

Sunshine

I am currently on holiday right now, so that is why I have not posted for a few days. I want you to know that I have been thinking about you and I have some great posts to follow soon, when I come back. Here is a short quote from me to you,

“The sun is always shining in your heart, let your inner rays warmth the soul of another, be bright, light and glow forever.”

Love to you from the Island of Ibiza, Clarabelle

Jump on that Cloud

Merry Christmas Everyone

When we really stop and take a meaningful look at the beauty around us, only then do we see it and feel it.  We have the power within us to magnify joy in each moment.  Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder and I hope you choose to pause for a moment and open your eyes and heart to see it on this special celebratory day.  This next poem is inspired by just that.  Merry Christmas Everyone, Lots of Love Clarabelle.

jump on that cloud

Jump on that Cloud

The stars have no beauty, without your eyes,

Are the lights still shining? – Truth or lies.

Without your presence, nothing is real,

Nothing is enjoyed, no emotions you feel.

Paint a picture, of a world without time,

No space on earth, just simply sublime.

Let your imagination, stretch that far,

Outside of your reality, no sound from the guitar.

The magic is in you, do you see what I see?

Without your world, nothing can be.

The universe is calling, life is your gift,

Jump on that cloud, to your dreams you will drift.

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.

My Christmas Life

When you feel emotional pain in your heart, sometimes it is really difficult to get into the Christmas Spirit, I know this because I experienced it for a few years in a row. At that time, I didn’t really want to celebrate Christmas and now I realise that that thinking was all wrong, it didn’t really serve me well.  This poem is all about that, release yourself from the heartache and cherish today for what it is, very very special.  May the joy of Christmas spirit connect fully to your heart, mind and soul.  Lots of love Clarabelle

My Christmas Life

My Christmas Life

Christmas after Christmas, the spirit died,

Pain in my head, from all the tears I cried.

No sparkling tree, under the moonlit sky,

A heavy heart, from the last goodbye.

Something felt missing, I let it all go,

 Focus was negative, no energy did show.

I had closed the door, to life and all,

Until little robin redbreast, chirped his jingle bell call.

He said…..”Open your mind, to all that could be,

Your spirit is alive, set it free.

Spread your wings, get out of the box,

There’s a twinkle in your heart, its voice does talk.”

Fireworks exploded, I joined the stars,

My Christmas Life on earth, was felt in Venus and Mars.

Sweet Christmas love,

A snowflake coloured dove.

Princess angels in the sky,

Robin Redbreasts flying high.

Icy winter is calling,

Midnight stars are falling.

Loving mistletoe kisses,

Little children’s wishes.

Mystical magical fun,

Merry Christmas everyone.
