Feelings

your every why

Feelings have power,
feelings can speak,
feelings can take you,
to the mountain peak.

Feelings can hurt,
feelings can breathe,
feelings can lead you,
so you can achieve.

Feelings are precious,
feelings are true,
feelings will determine,
every part of you.

Feelings can unite,
feelings can fly,
feelings can control,
your every why.

Feelings are unique,
feelings are you,
feelings are loving,
can you feel me too?

Goodbye My Precious

I set you free

I tried so hard,
to win your heart,
I gave it my all,
right from the start.

I guess you didn't,
want that too,
I felt your resistance,
through and through.

So I moved on,
then you came back,
for another go,
to get on the right track.

My soul felt heavy,
for this buried hurt,
cannot be separated,
from cold dirt.

I set you free,
to live and learn,
deep true love,
you have to earn.

It takes respect,
trust and forgiving,
loyalty and smiles,
the same joint vision.

Goodbye my precious,
may you find your one,
to my dreams on the horizon
every mile I run.

Being “Me”

this is your call

Do not try to be loved,
for that force never wins,
opening up your heart,
is where attraction begins.

Do not try to be wanted,
for this wonderful you,
is unique and special,
for the right person too.

Do not try to be liked,
for you have it all,
talented and beautiful,
this is your call.

Do not try to be something,
you never want to be,
always stay you,
enjoy being "me".

What is…..?

a miracle glowing

What is love,
without surprise,
a caring thought,
heartfelt eyes.

What is kindness,
without the giving,
touching lives,
soulful living.

What is forgiveness,
without a prayer,
sharing you,
unique and rare.

What is gratitude,
without the knowing,
a thankful bond,
a miracle glowing.

What is here,
without your presence,
healing time,
your very essence.

CHAMPION HEART

give life your all

When the wild wind blows,
and you're down on your knees,
begging for mercy,
praying for please.

Lift your head high,
stand up tall,
break down those barriers,
give life your all.

Many would hope,
for your inner strength,
running on empty,
but going every length.

Your champion heart,
can carry you forever,
up the highest mountain,
across each raging river.

See yourself winning,
battling each storm,
building the new,
challenging the norm.

You’re the Star

forever inspiring

You're the Star,
that shines so bright,
giving me hope,
bringing me light.

You're the Star,
in my heart,
forever inspiring,
igniting each part.

You're the Star,
strong in power,
fading the darkness,
sparkling each hour.

You're the Star,
soulful in time,
guiding to goodness,
simply divine.

Oceans run deep

time is of the essence
beneath the sky so blue.

A thought on hold

Beauty embraces
energetic light

enchanting the night.

Hope in your heart

Be Brave

She said, “be brave”.

Today she dreams
of what will be
her vibrant heart
beating free.

Her thoughts they shine
beneath the sun
glowing brightly
in everyone.

When it was dark
in pasts gone by
she battled her way
she challenged her why.

She said "be brave"
be the one
who strives to make it
until it's done.

No other path
could take her where
the heavens opened
soul stripped bare.

She gives her mind
to this cause
silence in love
kind self-applause.

She raised her spirit
embraced inner beauty
to achieve her purpose
she made it her duty.

Misdirected Energy

How’s your energy this fine day?

Good Monday morning to wonderful you.

Sometimes we slow down in our progress because of our misdirected energy. What do I mean by this?

Well, when our focus is out of alignment and our core values are not being honoured on a daily basis, our energy takes a different path or indeed a different form.

Think about what “doings” give you the greatest life energy and direct your focus more into that.

I was so excited this morning to write to you in this blog and that’s a very good example of where my energy needs to be.

As you move through your Monday, may you channel your energy in the right direction.

Create your day from the heart and your energy will be in abundance.

How’s your energy this fine day?

Love to you,

CLARABELLE ūü¶č

Castaway Troubles

“remember your strength….”

“My love for writing to you, brings us so much closer together.” Clarabelle

Castaway troubles
live in the light
beauty is being
sunny and bright.

Now is your chance
to forgive and move on
your rainbow of love
awakens a new dawn.

When midnight calls
and dark skies appear
remember your strength
why you are here.

Your future is glowing
shining from your heart
tomorrow brings treasures
but today you must start.

Life As We Know It

“A time to listen,
a time to reflect,
nothing is real,
nothing perfect.”

I wrote this for you today, in the moment and captivated by the feeling….

LIFE AS WE KNOW IT

Across the seas,
I feel your smile,
heaven opens,
the rainbow mile.

A time to listen,
a time to reflect,
nothing is real,
nothing perfect.

Life as we know it,
will pass you by,
tick tock goes the clock,
no reasons why.

So cherish the good days,
embrace the rain,
it’s in moments like these,
we castaway pain.

Today just savour,
the clouds moving slow,
to your dreams in your heart,
let that love glow.

Who Are You?

believe

I wrote this last year for YOU.

You can also listen to the audio speech here:

Who Are You? You are special, a person with a heart, a loving heart, a soul, a singing soul, a spirit, a happy spirit.  You have dreams, great, great, dreams.  You have plans, big, big, plans.  You have faith, strong faith in the mystery of the unknown and YOU BELIEVE.

You believe with every part of your being that only magnificence lies before you.  You have a unique power that goes beyond the impossible.  You have an energy that attracts true abundance to you.  You are alive and are grateful for all that you are and for all that you are becoming.

You can create magic around you because you breathe and do with passion, every baby step that you take on this journey of life.

The miracle of all miracles is in you and in every path you come across.  Every heart that you touch, every soul that you inspire, every star that you catch and every rainbow that protects you from the storms.

You are at one with yourself, in the silence of all silences your spirit shines and your light guides you out of the darkness.

You fly, you soar, you reach for the mountain top and when you get there, you see far in the distance another higher mountain to climb.  But it is in the challenge of every challenge to only ever reach the top.  The top is never ending, the beginning is never new, life is, what it is.

Life is how you see it. 

Life is how you live it. 

Life is how you love it.

There is freedom, there is abundance, there is everything you need and want before you.  You can’t see it with your eyes, you can’t touch it with your hands but it is living, breathing and dancing around you.  This invisible space is your space, your space to fill with smiles, laughter, love, joy and happiness.  Nourish the space around you by nourishing peace from within, because even in stormy weathers you can find a calm place.

So go to the edge of the mountain top because it is waiting for you with open arms.  Other travellers want to hear your story, want to learn from your experiences, good or bad.  They want to know, what you know, to help them on their own journey of life.

Then you must find a quiet spot and listen to the sound of the wind, whispers of the greatest knowledge will come to you and you will use this wisdom to carry on.

Yes you may feel broken right now.

Yes you may have cried enough tears to fill a river.

Yes you may feel like a failure and all your self-worth and self-confidence has gone.

But I want to tell you something. It’s still there you know.  The best part of you is still living in you. You still have that spark. You still shine.  You are loved deeply and your heart knows this.
The mind can play games with our feelings, but the mind has no hold over the power of the heart.  Close your eyes, feel your heart, feel its energy, feel its power, let it grow inside of you.

You are very special and you can and will do this. You will turn your life around for the better.

This is the moment that counts, this is when you decide enough is enough.¬† This is when you say ‚ÄúI am strong, I am better than that and I believe in me and my potential.¬† I am whatever I choose to be and I choose to be what I believe in my heart.¬† I am my greatest dreams, I am.‚ÄĚ

Never settle for too little because you have such a lot and to not unleash your true talents into this world would surely keep you from the wisdom that is truly yours.

Trust in you, trust in your abilities, trust that everyone is asking similar questions and this is your time to fight back.  This is your time to answer with your heart.  This is your life, to love, to live, to learn and to lead.  Capture that feeling in your heart right now, let it flow through every vein in your body, let it illuminate you with drive, determination and self-discipline, now mix it with passion and purpose and you’re on your way.

You are free now, free to make the right choices and decisions in life that will make you the BEST EVER YOU.¬† Your new life awaits ‚Äď make every moment count and GO GET IT, because nobody deserves it more than you.¬† You have all the qualities within you to make it.¬† Thrive, grow and shine NOW and FOREVER.

Keep Your Dreams Alive

Yes You Can

Yesterday I was doing some singing practice at home and I video recorded the NEW version of my original song, “Yes You Can” for you. ¬†This motivational song with empowering lyrics has a “Country Music” vibe to it and this song will be on my second EP entitled,¬†“You Can Do It”. ¬†Below is a YouTube video of me singing the song yesterday and here is a taster of the lyrics for you:

“Keep your dreams alive, for they are so special,
Let your happy spirit thrive, have strength and be strong.
This is where your heart belongs. ¬†Yes You Can…..”

Wishing you a “Yes You Can” Day, lots of love, Clarabelle

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.  Thank you, love Clarabelle

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

December – Question of the Month

Clarabelle Quotes, Where there is love

Question of the Month

At the beginning of every month I pose a question for you to think about and answer for yourself. ¬†I also provide you with my own answer to this question. ¬†Below is this month’s question.

Usually I offer you up a question that relates to moving forward with your life for e.g. making a change or a question that will help you to become more self aware. ¬†This month’s question is a little bit more simple (well, for me) ūüôā .

Question:  

What is your most favourite piece of music or song, right now, in this moment and why?

My Answer:

I really do love lots of songs and music compilations, I have a deep respect and appreciation for music and I really do admire the musical talents of Artists.

The one song that I have been listening to recently and really does inspire me, is a song called “Try” by the Band “The Modern Hearts”. ¬†I really LOVE this song, because I can relate to the words, which¬†uplift me, inspire me and¬†awaken my soul inside….to me, this song is quite simply magical and¬†captivating. ¬†When I play this song, I want to dance, I just start jumping and moving around on the living room floor like a 2 year old on Christmas Eve excitedly waiting for Santa to arrive. ¬†What an amazing impact a song can have on you.

Here is a SoundCloud link to the wonderfully inspiring song “Try” by the Band “The Modern Hearts”, right now, this song is number one in my heart and soul: https://soundcloud.com/modernheart/try

I would really love to know what is your favourite song and why and also what positive impact it has on you too?  

Please share on the comments section below. ¬†ūüôā ūüôā ūüôā

Me and My Mum

Me and My Mum, 1 July 2012
Me and My Mum, 1 July 2012

Ponder, Think, Reflect

I am 10 weeks into my 16 week marathon training programme and my long runs at the weekend can be quite challenging.  Yesterday, I had to do a 16 mile run, this took me about 2 hours and 45 minutes. I stopped taking music with me on these runs and I now use the time to ponder, think and reflect on whatever comes up for me at that time Рvery often these thoughts turn into a blog post, just like today.

Carfin

My running routes are through my local town and often take me into other connecting villages and towns.  Yesterday I found myself running in the village of Carfin that I was brought up in and where my mum lives.

Whilst running up hill towards my mum’s home I thought about the times when I visit her and then a sad thought came over me, one day I will not be visiting my mum in her home, because one day my mum and just like the rest of us will not be here. ¬†I didn’t ponder this for too long because I didn’t want to make myself feel too sad. ¬†I suppose that is life and that is the reality of it all but it did make me think about me really wanting to spend quality time with my mum whilst she is here and whilst I live so close to her. ¬†I then immediately thought of all the nice things we could do together, places we could go and visit, conversations we could have, holidays we could go on…..lots of special time together. ¬†So I now have a little plan of action to put all of this into place.

Loved Ones

Sometimes in life without even realising it we can take our loved ones for granted, especially when everything is going well with their health etc.. ¬†My run towards my mum’s house yesterday made me really think about that, I want to spend as much quality time with my mum as I can and I will and I look forward to sharing those lovely fun stories with you on this blog.

If this post has made you think about a loved one, please give them a phone, visit them, drop them an email or text…..just connect with them and let them know you are thinking about them and are there for them, it will make you and that person feel great today.

Wishing you a beautiful day filled with love and happiness, Clarabelle

August – Question of the Month

clarabelle-cartoon-character.png

At the beginning of every month I give you a question to ponder and considering answering for yourself and I also share my own answer with you. ¬†Below is this month’s question:

Question:  

When was the last time you laughed and I mean like a good old “belly laugh”?

My Answer:

I honestly do laugh every day, however the last time I remember having a good old “belly laugh” was when I visited my mum recently for a cup of tea, we were having a nice chat and she said something that surprised me, it was so unexpected I could not stop laughing and because I was laughing so much she couldn’t stop laughing either. ¬†I am even laughing thinking about it now. ¬†

Life can be oh too serious at times and sometimes you just need to laugh out loud, go on have a laugh with your friends today, watch a funny movie or listen to your favourite comedian, whatever it is just you make sure you laugh then I know you will feel amazing.

May this month of August be filled with sweet laughter for you.

Love Clarabelle

Wish Upon a Penny

United States penny, obverse, 2002

Here is a wee poem I wrote last week, STOP that inner critic, pick up a penny, hold it close to your heart, make a wish and pass the penny on……..now believe that your wish will come true, MAKE your wish come true. ¬†Wishing you wonderful moments of fulfilled wishes. ¬†Love Clarabelle

Wish Upon a Penny

I listen in the silence, sweet birdies do sing
Should I turn on the TV and drown out their din
I will ignore their calling, just for a while
I’ve a busy mind, chores they do pile
The sun it may shine, but my head’s in a cloud
A storm is brewing, amongst this crowd
I’m strangled in frustration, fighting the war
No one sees me and my internal decor
To just get by, another day,
Gives me hope, paves the way

Then Lightning strikes, STOP, look at your life
Look at your reactions, creating this strife
Sing another song, dance to another tune
Darkness will fade, here comes the moon
See the beauty, in each moment now
Look in the mirror, don’t ask how
Be grateful for your riches, you have many
Create a new you, wish upon a penny
