POETRY CORNER #14 Open the Door

Stand there tall.

Welcome to Poetry Corner Thursday.
I hope the poem below takes you to places you’ve always wanted to go to.

Open the Door

The experience of life,
will make you strong,
your spirit will uplift you,
to where you belong.

All is whole,
truth and more,
welcome the world,
open the door.

A grateful heart,
will always smile,
magical moments,
are felt for a while.

As the curtain falls,
and the audience moves on,
stand there tall,
for you have not gone.

Your soul is forever,
it sparkles and shines,
listen to,
its beautiful chimes.

Take your frequency,
as high as a kite,
the Universe is waiting, 
take your first flight.

Let Go of Old Ways

Think of your life ahead as one big blank canvas

What if you had to begin again? I really mean begin again, right where you are. What would that mean for you? What would you want to start again?

Life is a bit like that, sometimes we just have to begin again, start afresh, let go of old ways and encompass new ways – new ways of thinking, new ways of doing and new ways of feeling.

Think of your life ahead as one big blank canvas, with lots of white space to fill with whatever you want to fill it with – what do you want to fill your white space with?

Use your imagination right now to envisage a life of love, love for everything you want to do and who you love being with.  Reinvent the next chapter of your life into something truly amazing for you and your loved ones. This space can be entered into the here and now by changing things up for yourself, whatever that will be for you.

So I encourage you today to fill your walking boots with courage, bravery, energy, love, self-discipline, creativity, imagination and determination to make each baby step of change fulfilling and purposeful for you.

Get those walking boots out and rock your socks off into the next episode of YOUR AMAZING LIFE.

Thank you for being here.

Ask and It Is Given

“Yes”

As you know I am putting my heart and soul into becoming a successful Singer-Songwriter and I guess the Universe is giving me what I am asking for.

Late on Friday afternoon I was asked to perform two of my original songs at an event that was taking place that evening.  It was very short notice but I just had to do it because I need the performance experience and I really need to get myself out there.  So I packed up my PA System and went along myself, only knowing 2 people in the room to start with, but by the end, knowing a lot more.

I sang my original song, “In Time We Heal” in the first half of the programme and sang my original song, “You Are” in the second half of the programme.  I received lovely feedback, especially for the second performance –  I am sure this was better because I felt more relaxed by then.

The main thing is, is that I said “yes” to this opportunity even though I felt a little unprepared but I know I had to push myself out of my comfort zone.

I was asking for performance experience only the night before….and I guess the Universe answered and certainly put my asking to the test.

Opportunities are everywhere in life and you know, you’ve just got to go for it…..I did on Friday night and although I was nervous, I am so glad I did it and I gained so much confidence from the experience.

Onwards and upwards my friends!!

Life is for the taking, take the opportunities when you can and when you can’t get them……create them.

It’s your life, GO GET IT!!

Lots of love, Clarabelle.

Opportunity is Now

Every moment is a moment to change for the better, that is what this inspirational quote by me is about.  Don’t wait for opportunities to knock on you door, go out create opportunities for yourself, make it happen, just do it!!  You owe it to yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and move into your stretch zone, go on do it now because opportunity is indeed NOW!!  Lots of love to you, Clarabelle

Change is Opportunity NOW

Go Get It!!

This is a post I wrote for another business blog in 2011, I came across it today and thought I would share it with you, there may be some value in it for you and please feel free to share away.  I wish you a day filled with opportunities for the taking, it’s your life, go get it!!  Clarabelle.

An Exciting Challenge

I was on the phone to my business partner Debbie and we were talking about ‘change’, for me ‘change is opportunity’.  Why do I say this?  Well as much as some of us might dread the thought of change, I absolutely love it and find it an exciting challenge.  I don’t want to sit in my ‘comfort zone’ all my life, it is important for me to get out there, embrace new challenges and live life.  If I fail, well I feel I have only learned some great lessons that will strengthen me as a person.

I was sent this wonderful quote last night by my friend Stephen, “if we never fail at anything we are not being adventurous enough” by Peter Huntley, MD of Go North East buses, what a truly wonderful quote that is.  I would rather try and fail 1000 times than not try at all.  Determination, persistence, passion, consistency, self-discipline and never giving up is the qualities that I feel will get me everywhere. We all know the famous saying ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ so I would also throw in some ‘love and patience’ to this amazing mix of ingredients.

What I would say however is that to make change happen you need to know exactly your answers to the following questions:

  • Where you are going?
  • What do you specifically want to achieve?
  • What is your life’s purpose?
  • What do you need to be, do and have to get there?
  • What activities can you take action on NOW that will have the greatest impact on moving you forward towards your change goal?

Change is a choice and once you make that full commitment to change anything in your life you must take ‘MASSIVE ACTION’ to initiate the process.     When you start taking meaningful action towards your change goal you will get more and more motivated by the results you start to see – the fruits of your labour.

To change effectively and for the long term you must start at the core, with the root “the roots determine the fruits”.  That means change the way you think, which will change the way you feel and ultimately this will change your behaviours and it is in what you do that will help you get real results.

So make that decision today, challenge yourself,  be open, flexible and adaptable to change, welcome it with open arms and express who you really are because the only constant in life is change and if you stand still, I believe you are actually going backwards, as others make changes to drive ahead they will most definitely overtake you – so don’t be left for dust, change is opportunity NOW!!

Now….what is now?

It’s almost 4am, I haven’t slept yet, I hear the birds chirping outside, they sound very happy indeed….I have this urge to write, not sure what will come out of my soul at these early hours of the morning but here goes……my heart speaks to you.  Much love and light to you today, Clarabelle.

Now...what is now?
Now….what is now?

Now…what is now?

Now….what is now?  I smile;

Peace, love, openness, for a while.

Moved by hearts, touched with care;

Self-expression, take me there.

And if I go, if my time has come;

I know my journey has helped someone.

They write to me, tell me it all;

The footprints of my friends, walking tall.

For in this moment now, I’m alive inside;

Filled with hope, beaming with pride.

You’re never alone, in this physical space;

I hear your cry, I see your face.

The wonders of the world, mesmerize me;

My mind has stopped thinking, the heart is the key.

So hold onto your hat, as the wind blows your way;

Challenges are a plenty, but tomorrow is not today.

Embrace the music, sing the song;

Be at one in this moment, it’s where you belong.

Rise and Shine

“It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me and I’m feeling good”…..these words beautifully sang by wonderful Mr Michael Buble, a very uplifting song indeed.  If you or someone you know is needing their spirits uplifted, then maybe, just maybe this next poem might do it for them, share away, as it might make someone’s day.  Lots of love to you, Clarabelle.

rise and shine
rise and shine

Rise and Shine

Wake up, wake up, rise and shine;

Get out of that bed, life is divine.

No more wallowing, in negative talk;

Get dressed, put your shoes on, and go for a walk.

Breathe in the fresh air, feel the light on your face;

Turn your life around, pick up the pace.

For no one can change you, you’ve heard it before;

Opportunity awaits you, open the door.

Make this one memorable, make it your goal;

To commit to a better future, this is your role.

The Soul is Talking

Each day I wake up with a brand new mission, I ask myself these questions, “What is my mission today?”, “How can I serve greatly?” and “How will I stay connected to my purpose?” – for some people, these are not easy questions to answer, for me, I have searched deep within my soul and have been moved by the voices in my heart. This is why I write this blog for you, by creating lyrical art I answer all three questions at once.  My soul it talking and it’s talking to you.  The next poem is inspired by just that.

The branch of the tree, edges out in time

The voices are loud and sing in rhyme

A soft breeze is blowing, I stand alone

A picture perfect, as I dream of home

Today the mission, is to commit to myself

The importance of happiness and my inner health

To serve greatly, give out my heart

Share unspoken words, through my vision and art

Imagination seeks, fuel to ponder

Creative spirit, such a special wonder

The page that was blank, now is full

The soul is talking, scribbles do rule

Stay connected to your purpose and so much will come

Opportunity is now, grasp it and run
