From Pain to Gain

From Pain to Gain

When will it all be worth it, I hear you asking yourself?  Your pathway to success and pure life fulfilment can be painstakingly tough and I mean emotionally, mentally and physically.  “Give me a break……please”, yes, we’ve all been there at times and I am no different.  Hang in there my friend, because just when you feel like letting it all go, like throwing in the towel, a glimmer of hope shines from the darkest depths of despair.  Where does this light come from?  This light is in you, it’s your inner strength growing and shimmering like the brightest star. No matter how many mistakes you have made, no matter how tough it gets, there is always a way, ALWAYS.  Let that way, be your way and no one else’s, for you have to take the driving seat in your own life. Your very own path may not make sense to anyone else, but that’s why it’s your path and no one else can decide that for you. As soon as you take charge of your own choices, your destiny will start to take shape. Mould and design your life your way, it doesn’t matter if no one else understands, it really doesn’t matter, you have to do what you want to do and master the game your way.

It’s the only way to move from real pain to real gain – do it your way, I DID 🙂

It’s your life, go get it!!

Inside of Me

I watched a motivational video today on YouTube (see below), immediately after watching it, I wrote the following quote:

“My motivation
to inspire others
will never die,
because inspiration
lives inside of me.”
[Clarabelle]

Wishing you an inspired day today, much love to you, Clarabelle

Green is for Go

Lately I have been noticing that things have been going my way, such as green traffic lights, people going out of their way to help me, smiles from strangers on the street, unexpected gifts, getting treated to lunch and receiving beautiful thank you notes.  I am so so so grateful for the abundance that is in my life right now and I am even more grateful that I am aware of it.  Stop for a moment today and think of 3 small things you are grateful for in your life right now, I know it will make you feel good.  Lots of love Clarabelle

green is for go

Green is for Go

Green is for go, I see it everywhere,

Moving me forward, it’s so special and rare.

The key to the door, the answer to my prayers,

The blossoming of the flower, uncovering deep layers.

The sparkle in the sky, the smile on the street,

An abundance of joy, dancing in my feet.

The seasons have changed, a new freshness is in the air,

Autumn leaves fall, and softly touch my hair.

I’m switched on to life, glowing at night,

Such a beautiful opening, I’m now in full flight.

Flying Without Wings

One of my favourite inspirational quotes is “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” by Gandhi.  I believe when YOU change, the world around you changes, you attract different circumstances, situations, people and things into your life that you would not have before.  As I continue on my own quest to be the best me EVER, I shall begin to share with you stories of real experiences in alignment with that thinking.  What one positive change could you make today that would make a positive difference in your life?     Wishing you a wonderful day full of choices and decisions that lead you to life fulfilment.  Lots of love as always Clarabelle.

Flying Without Wings

Life is good you know, my spirit is alive

Being just myself, like a bumble bee in its hive

Focus is so strong and grows deeper day by day

The world around me is changing, I’m living well this way

Creative imaginations, are like flowers in the spring

Their beauty is forever abundant, I’m flying without wings

This Time It’s Different

I was at the hospital with my mum today and whilst she was meeting with the Doctor, I sat in the waiting room with my notepad and pen, happily writing some poems.  I remembered some of the empowering words from my Vision Wall (see photo from it below) and created this next poem which was inspired by the phrase ‘This Time It’s Different’ and for me, it surely is.  What positive changes do you want to make in your life today? Go on, just do it!!  I hope you enjoy this next poem.

This Time It’s Different

To start afresh, believe in you

A chance to change, for all that’s true

To give you hope and faith in all

“This time it’s different”, I hear you call

The present is here, embrace all things

When the sun comes up and the morning bird sings

Awaken your spirits, make a positive start

Live your life on purpose, from the depths of your heart

The New Me

A few weeks ago I was telling you about my plans for creating a vision board and I am delighted to say that it is now complete.  I will create a new page on here and post pictures of it, so you can check it out.  Actually, I would say it is more like a vision wall, so that is what I am going to call it from now on.  I am just looking at it now and the words ‘the new me’ are jumping out at me, so I decided to do a poem about that.  I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day.  Lots of love Clarabelle.

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

Whispering Words

Time ticks on, moment after moment, breath after breath.  The sun rises, the sun sets and the clouds drift in slow motion, pause for a second, appreciate the time you have and live your life in meaningful pursuit.  This next poem is for you….time is of the essence. Wherever you are, I do hope the sun is shining on you.

Whispering Words

Time is of the essence, appreciate it well

The senses are awakening, I’m under your spell

Whispering words, silence in me

This daisy chain of life, surrounds the hollow tree

Each petal of hope, floats carefree in the breeze

Touching hearts, melting the freeze

Connecting souls, shining like stars

Breaking down barriers, bending the bars

The mind thinks, with passion and belief

Summer searches on, as I grasp the autumn leaf

And in the palm of my hand, I hold it tight

It’s a fragile treasure, escaping from the light

To let it go, is brave and true

Seasons change hope, that grows within you

Flourish and Blossom

Sometimes we don’t see ourselves the way others see us, often we can let our negative self talk hold us back but somewhere out there, remember there is at least one person who truly loves you for just being you, if only you could see yourself through their eyes, just knowing that is enough to make you feel wonderful inside today.  This next poem is all about that, I hope you enjoy and may all your inner thoughts be positive about yourself.

Flourish and Blossom

If you could see yourself, through my eyes

There would be no mask, or false disguise

You’d be true to yourself and all that could be

Walking tall, dancing on the sea

Your vibe is beautiful, the frequency high

Take a peek, a glimpse, just one more try

For you are, all you need to be

Your heart is shining, set it free

You have the power, to water the seeds

Flourish and blossom, fulfill all your needs

Discover a New Path

What are YOU waiting for?  What can you influence in your life?  I encourage you today to have a pro-active mind, to take control of your destiny and make things happen for you. Go on, you know you can do it. . . . . open the door to life.  Wishing you a beautiful day full of magical moments and pro-activity.

Discover a New Path

Time after time lessons come, and lessons go

Let life in, this is your show

The waiting game, slows down the clock

Open the door, don’t wait for the knock

A pro-active mind, is prepared for the now

Planning ahead, will answer the how

Discover a new path, to travel on

Where dreams of hope, are never gone

Explore, take charge and do what needs done

Put yourself out there and the rest will come
