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, 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.
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.
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.
Only 4 days ago I shared a blog stats post with you, I was so delighted that I reached over 18,000 blog hits. I remember it used to take me over a month to receive over 1000 blog hits and yes, you’ve guessed it, I’ve reached over 19,000 blog hits now. The last 4 days has been amazing for this blog and Christmas Eve was my busiest day ever on this blog to date, with 466 hits, thank YOU so much. I am so amazed by this blog’s progress, I really love posting to this blog and I do hope it shows because I get so much from it and I really hope you do too. So thank YOU once again for making this happen, I really do love you for it and I hope you stay on this wonderful journey with me. Lots of love to you today and always, Clarabelle.
2014 is just around the corner and it’s now time for you to get thinking about all that you want to achieve next year. Let 2014 be a year to remember, a year where you take full control of your life and make life changing decisions that will catapult you to the next level. The important part here, is that you must know where you are going…..yes, that’s step 1 of the process, because if you don’t know that, then chances are you could be going around in circles. So where are you going? Take some time today, to think about answering that question for yourself. This next poem is inspired by just that. Start your New Year planning NOW!! After all there is no time like the present. Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.
The New Year
Where are you going? Not just for today. What steps are you taking? To move you on your way. Let the New Year, Be prosperous for you, Decide NOW, What you’re going to do. For this is your chance, To turn life around, No more negativity, Or staring at the ground. Lift up your head, Stand up tall, Go make it happen, This one’s your call.
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.
Make 2014 your best year yet, I know you can, just decide and do it. This next poem is a lovely Happy New Year Poem created by the super talented Maureen Turner. Maureen has shared some lovely poems on this blog with us before and it is a real pleasure to have her back. Thank you to Maureen for sharing your poetry with us, we love you for it.
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.

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.
The countdown is on to Christmas Day so let’s celebrate with yes, you know it, another Christmas poem, woo hoo!! I am really enjoying sharing these Christmas poems with you, we’re nearly there and I hope you are all organised for Santa coming. Happy happy Christmas to you and well, Happy Everything too!! Love Clarabelle
Happy Happy Everything
Happy happy everything, on this Christmas day. I wish you joy and lots of fun, in a Merry Christmas way. Enjoy the love, embrace it all, it’s only once a year. Happy happy everything, for Christmas and New Year.
A very warm welcome to you on Day 11 of sharing a Christmas Poem with you. Today I am so delighted to share a Christmas Poem with you that was created by the wonderfully talented Maureen Turner. Maureen has been a Guest Blogger for us before on this Clarabelle Blog, here is a link to Maureen’s Guest Post from March 2013 where she shared with us her lovely poem entitled, “Happiness“. However, today is also about happiness, happiness at Christmas time and I just know you’ll love Maureen’s Christmas Poem, entitled “Christmas Comes But Once A Year”. A very special thank you to Maureen for sharing her happy spirit and creative talents with us here on this Clarabelle blog.
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?
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.
A very warm and cosy welcome to Day 7 of my Christmas Poems leading up to Christmas Day.
Mince Pie at Christmas
I LOVE a wee mince pie at Christmas, funny thing is, when I was a child I never really liked them at all but now I really do. I could go a Christmas mince pie, right now. 🙂 Enjoy the scrumptious festive food this Christmastime and please don’t worry about overindulging, because it’s not what you eat in between Christmas and New Year that matters, it’s what you eat between New Year and Christmas. Yummy, Yummy!!
A Mince Pie at Christmas
A mince pie at Christmas, Is scrumptious and yummy. I love this little treat, and so does my tummy.
You can have it hot, or fresh and cool. Whatever way you like it, it will make your mouth drool.
So grab a cuppa coffee, sit down and relax, Enjoy a Christmas mince pie, fill your taste buds to the max!!
I was walking home from my mum’s house the other day (17.09.12) and I found myself really embracing the moment, it was so beautiful and everything just felt perfect. A phrase popped into my head at that time, “the piano in my heart” and I just knew I had to write a poem about it. So here it is. Happy New Year to YOU…..Happiness is the Way!! Lots of love Clarabelle
Happiness is the Way
The piano in my heart, plays for you,
The sweetest musical notes, so whole and true.
The solitude of love, needs no home,
On this journey of life, wherever I do roam.
Happiness is the key, happiness is the way,
The polished ivory effect, shines today.
Listen in the silence, it whispers in the breeze,
Sparkling in the moonlight, stardust on the trees.
The voice within my soul, sings without a cue,
Touching my spirit, connecting with every part of you.

Life can be really really tough sometimes, it can throw you curve ball after curve ball, whilst you’re climbing up the highest mountain, in the toughest terrain and then just when you think you’re getting somewhere, down comes the avalanche!! You may not realise it, but this is where the lighting strikes, this is where the miracle happens….saturated in doubts and drenched in tears, your heart and soul gets to work and creates a special magic inside of you, which reaches out and touches the stars. When you feel the deepest pain, believe me, it’s the start of your healing. How do I know?……I’ve been there. The New Year is just around the corner, there is life after 2012, I see it is so very special for you, full of love and abundance. My inner calling told me to share this with you today…….sometimes we all need a helping hand – listen to the whispers of your heart, for they only speak truth to you. Much love to you today, Clarabelle.
There’s a Champion in YOU!!
Your light shines brighter, in the dark,
Your heart beats stronger, but leaves no mark.
The soul reconnects, to all of you,
The mountain climb, is in full view.
Pause for a second, feel the calmness in the air,
Your inner being, has much love to share.
The battle ain’t over, but YOU will win,
Believe it and see it, hold up that chin.
Because sometimes we fall, and keep on falling,
Tumbling down the hill, away from our calling.
But where you land, is the start of your healing,
Disguised in your tears, and in the pain you are feeling.
Nothing feels worse, but please trust, in what I say,
As you freeze in the moment, in the heat of the day.
You are a miracle, you are the one,
That can move any mountain, your journey has begun.
For inside your being, a bright flame does glow,
The tougher life gets, the more it does grow.
The eyes cannot see it, as the mind struggles on,
But it’s burning down the virus, until it’s all gone.
Don’t shut out these whispers, have faith, they are true,
Keep going, my friend, there’s a champion in YOU!!
