I have a plan, a vision, a strong desire for changing things for myself for the better and you know what, the plan is working, it is starting to show me results in the areas I am wanting them.
I think it really does go to show, that you get more of what you focus upon, this is so true. You do have to put the work in though, but if it’s a strong passionate desire you’re working towards, then the work is never an issue and often the work is a complete joy.
I have a plan, a BIG plan and it’s working.
I urge you today to get yourself a plan, and then put it into daily action, yes, moment to moment, go to work on your plan – it may take some time but you will get there, believe me, YOU WILL.
I am thanking all the people from all the countries all over the world who have visited this Clarabelle blog. I have done thank you poems for USA, India and Canada so far and today I thank all you lovely people from Romania. This one is for you:
To my blog.
In my wheel of life,
You are a cog.
You brighten my days,
Bring warmth to me.
My Romanian friends,
You set me free.
I didn’t know it, I honestly didn’t know this, for the best part of my life, I didn’t know this……I just didn’t.
Well, what is it, that I didn’t know?
I didn’t know that I could write, I didn’t know that I would want to write, I didn’t know that I was passionate about writing, until I started writing. I mean really started writing, regularly, consistently and being inspired to write on this blog.
It’s not that I didn’t write before, sure I’ve wrote many policies and procedures, I’ve written University Assignments, I’ve written Board Reports, I’ve written Client Summary Reports but and I mean a BIG BUT, to me, although they obviously were writing, they weren’t freedom writing, they weren’t my heart speaking and flowing with inspiring graciousness.
So to me there is “writing” and there is “real writing” and I am now captivated in the latter.
I am 41 years young now and I started this Clarabelle Blog at the age of 38, wow, has it really taken that long for me to hear my calling, for me to really truly listen to the whispers of my heart?? WOW!!
I guess it has…………………..and you know what, it doesn’t matter when in life you discover what your calling is, what’s more important is that you respond positively and do what your heart is telling you to do and in my case, I guess, it is writing……writing like this, yes, just like this, nothing too fancy, nothing too wordy, keeping it simple but full of inspirational wisdom with a poetic verse thrown in for good measure.
Isn’t life kinda funny, one minute you think you’re headed on one path and all of a sudden, something happens and you’re nudged up another path (notice I said “up” not “down”)!! Cos we’re on our way up here, right!!
I wonder what your heart is whispering to you…..I wonder? Do you wonder, or do you know the answer already to that one? I really hope you do and you are acting upon it.
I see you, I know you’re watching me, I believe you are listening to every word I whisper, I feel you’re desire for a better you, a better life, a new tomorrow.
But I know you are a little scared, you have fears, but you’re going to be alright, you’re going to be much much better than alright. How do I know this? I just know this, because that’s why you’re here, everyday you visit me and you know it will help you, you know it will help you ease your current pain and you’re gonna make it.
Did you hear me right? Yes, you, YOU, you’re gonna make it, that dream you’ve always wanted to achieve, that burning ambition living inside of you……it’s making its way to your heart, it wants to breathe true life into you, it’s getting ready to take on the world and nothing is going to stop it, which means nothing is going to stop you.
Pause for a moment, think about it……really think about it, you can see it right? I know you can, because I can see it too. WOW, it looks amazing, your future self is so grateful you took the courage and made the first step now. Go on, take another step, that’s right, you’re doing really great…….do you feel your heart smiling, it is you know, it is smiling with super joy because you’re heading in the right direction. Where are you going? Maybe we could do this together, help each other along the way, two brave soldiers heading out into battle and the only outcome possible is reaching the rainbow at the other end.
What a great day this is, this is the most amazing day for you, you might not realise it yet, but you’ve just climbed a huge mountain and you’re now looking at the view from the top……..You may be a little bruised getting here, but you’ve got here, wasn’t it all worth it, don’t you agree that you deserve so much better for you and for your family. Let’s go my friend, there’s another mountain to climb, but we’re in this together, fighting with our hearts and minds to achieve EVERYTHING that we want and more.
Do you believe in Fairytale endings?… I certainly do, you’ve got to. You’ve got to believe that everything you are working towards on the pathway to your dreams is going to manifest just the way you want it to or even better than that.
Your Fairytale ending is the ultimate vision you want for your future, even if it only feels like a whisper in the wind at the moment. Keep digging, keep trying, keep putting the right energy out there and something’s got to catch, like a ripple effect on the water, only this ripple is connected to your Fairytale ending.
See your reflection in the lake, see it as a mirror image of the person you are becoming, your future self dancing joyfully in your Fairytale ending.
Do something today to get you closer to your dreams…….keep up the great work and never stop putting in the effort that you need to put in until you get there.
Let me tell you something, I was thinking about this, only this evening. If you’re looking for the end, if you’re wanting the process to “hurry up” then whatever it is that you are doing, may not be for you.
I write to you, everyday I write, I never look for the ending, I never think, when is this piece of writing going to end. The reason being is that I love it so much, love never wants to end, it’s continuous it’s unbreakable, the bond only gets stronger.
So if you’re looking into the distance and questioning, when will you get there…….maybe you have to change the question…….and if you have to change the question, then I guess you already know the answer.
Never ever will I stop writing to you, because even when my soul has passed on to another dimension, my spirit still shines in you, the reader and this then inspires you…..and the light continues to shine on.
You may only be one candle, but this one candle, has the power to light up the Universe.
Please remember how empowering you can be.
Light up your world and you light up the world of everyone around you.
At the moment I do 3 blog posts per day and people ask me where I get my inspiration from to write those articles and keep it up. Let me tell you something, I have no challenge at all with being inspired to write, I could write to you all day everyday, it would always be a joy for me. I know writing is for ME, I just love it, I never ever get tired of writing to you, for you and for me. Writing keeps me going, writing on this blog to you inspires my soul and uplifts every part of my being. I can write at any time of the day, inspiration is always there……it’s never ending.
I know creative writing is definitely ME, I live and breathe it with my passionate heart.
I have amazing, fabulous plans going forward that will allow me to write even more and more and more…….so my beautiful friend, watch this space, watch how this all flourishes before your very eyes.
I love having you here, I really do and I’ll never stop writing to you for I know in my heart this is ME.
PS: Staying committed to the dream, I trust you are too. 🙂
In a previous blog post last week, I wrote a poem about Oprah Winfrey reading my book, this is what I want. I moved forward with this desire last week and posted to Oprah Winfrey a copy of my Amazon book, “Clarabelle’s Musings”.
I researched into 3 addresses to send it into Oprah Winfrey, so, yes you’ve guessed it, I sent a copy of my book to each of the 3 addresses – it could be in her hands, right now, as we speak.
I really do believe this is a book that Oprah Winfrey will absolutely love, I truly do and I guess if it’s meant for her to read she will definitely get the opportunity to read it, the Universe will make sure of that.
I shall keep you posted on developments, it may be 6 days, 6 weeks or 6 years, but let’s just see what happens.
I hope that you will take some encouragement out of this blog post for yourself, I hope it inspires you to take your dreams one step further.
Come into your own light today and express the real you. Let go of all fears that prevent you from moving forward. Embrace each new person into your life with warmth, smiles and kindness. When you see someone struggling, give them a piece of your light, it will make you sparkle even more.
It’s only a matter of time for your vision to come alive. First you feel it in your heart, then you see it in your imagination, then you feel it moving in your bones and then it dances throughout your body….and only when it has flowed through all of those stages, only then it begins to take form.
It starts with one word, one step, one piece of the 100,000 piece jigsaw puzzle but it doesn’t matter how long it takes, because you know “your calling” is going to make it. Listen to me my friend, it’s only a matter of time……because it is in silence of faith that dreams can be awakened.
So can I relate to the above? Yes, you’ve got it, of course I can. Almost 6 years ago, I was kind of laughed at because I said at the very start of my business that I was going to have my own books, my very own positive book range……I just knew what they were thinking, their faces said it all, but you know I BELIEVED, I really believed in me, I always do and sometimes I get off track but I always get back there, back to where I need to be.
I sit here today looking at my first Amazon paperback book,”Clarabelle’s Musings”, sitting on my home office desk and I am smiling with pure joy, excitement and adoration of what I see before me……for my heart is sitting on this table, my heart is painted on the pages of this book, making its way to you.
So if you believe like I believed in me, when other people laughed at what I wanted to achieve for myself, may my own story inspire you to keep going my friend…..6 days, 6 months, 6 years, you’re going to make it…..it’s only a matter of time.
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 “I 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.”
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 – 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.
If you think this will help someone, please please share. Thank you.
Spread a touch of love today, it will really make a difference to your day and to someone else’s day. This could be anything from buying someone a cup of coffee, to making their dinner for them, or baking a cake for your neighbour. A little bit of love goes a long long way and people will always remember how you made them feel and there is no better feeling than feeling loved and cared for.
Wishing you a lovely day wherever you are in the world.
Look with your heart, you’ll experience a different story.
Ben & Bella
Ben: I’m scared, it’s dark in here.
Ben: In here….it’s very dark.
Bella: Look inside.
Ben: I am looking.
Bella: I mean, really look inside.
Ben: My eyes are wide open.
Bella: My lovely, look with all your heart.
Ben My heart?
Bella: Yes, your loving heart.
Ben How do I do that?
Bella: Close your eyes.
Ben: Okay, they’re closed.
Bella: Now, feel the light in your heart.
Ben: Wow, it’s beautiful, I’m not afraid any more.
I am thinking about someone, they make me smile, they make me think of sunny days, love and laughter, they make me feel young. Here is a little poem by me, to brighten up your day.
Thoughts of You
Good morning sunshine,
Let me take hold of you.
Your smile is so pretty,
Your eyes are so blue.
Your spirit is happy,
A magical one.
Breathe light on my path,
And energetic fun.
You make me smile,
Forever this way.
The sweetest thoughts of you,
Are with me today
I would like to say a very special thank you to all of you who visit my Clarabelle blog, I really do appreciate it. I am celebrating today reaching over 28,000 visitors since April 2012 and I am very very grateful for your presence and contribution.
It’s so lovely to know that I have a global following and so encouraging to know that it all just started with one blog post, one thought, one piece of inspiration and acting upon it.
I will continue to write as much as I can on this blog, I love writing articles for you and I do hope you keep coming back time and time again.
So here is this month’s question for you to ponder and reflect upon,
What makes you feel good?
Well, for me there are lots of things that make me feel good but the one thing that sticks out in my mind right now is writing. The funny thing is I never really liked English at school but I did love Mathematics. It’s really strange how things have turned around because now I love writing and reading and I am not a fan of the number crunching anymore.
This blog has really helped me to connect with my thoughts, my feeling, my emotions and my inner creativity – I feel at peace when I write, it is so soothing and calming for me and it works as a dual purpose because I write to inspire you too.
So I do really hope that you are enjoying reading the articles on this blog – they come from a peaceful mind, a happy heart and an inspired soul.
Just show me love,
And I’ll show you the way.
An unknown path,
But I’m here to stay.
A new world awaits,
Hope is where I live,
Fond sweet memories,
True kindness I give.
Share your heart,
Let me see it all,
Building a new life,
Where stars do fall.
And the sun shines on,
Like never before,
Take my hand,
Let’s go through the door.
I see the rainbow,
Its colours so bright,
You’ve shown me the light.
Some things are just meant to be and when all seems lost and the door seems locked, in walks love…..forever love. May you find beauty, love and peace in the following verse.
Hearts Will Dance
And through the pain,
She awaits his heart.
Missing his love,
When he did depart.
She hears his voice,
Whisper in her soul.
She feels his spirit,
Making her whole.
In all this time,
In all the tears.
Words, “I love you”,
Unspoken for years.
It’s not too late,
Now there’s a chance.
To be together,
Both hearts will dance.
As she closes her eyes,
With a peaceful mind.
She knows he is waiting,
True love they did find.
Just before I start my days work, here is a poem of the heart for you:
A Poem of the Heart
A poem of the heart,
especially for you.
To make you feel loved,
so wonderful and true.
A poem from my soul,
lifting you up,
Raising your spirits,
with a half full cup.
A poem of truth,
with a magical spell.
This poem is for you,
and I wish you well.
Wishing you a very beautiful day today, share a piece of your heart.
Three of the most powerful words that touch your soul like no other, that make your heart smile inside, that help you to believe that anything is possible and that give you hope for the future and peace in the now. What are these words?….these words can only be:
“I Love You”
Say it out loud, right now, feel how those words feel, those are three of the most impactful words you will ever say to someone. Those three little words can turn EVERYTHING around for the better. “I Love You” said with true meaning and heart can raise a shattered soul from the gutter and uplift it so much that it will be dancing with the birds around the sun.
When was the last time you told someone you loved them? I know you know they know it, but when did you actually look them in the eyes, hold their hands and say to them “I Love you”?
Do it today, do it for yourself and do it for them……make today an “I Love You” day. I KNOW it will make you and the other person feel so good.
And…….to you, YOU, who faithfully drops by every day on this Clarabelle Blog, “I Love you”…for being here…I LOVE YOU.
Wishing you a loving day, wherever you are in the world.
I know a lot of people don’t like change but personally I welcome change. I thrive in new settings, new beginnings, meeting new people, learning new things, overcoming new challenges, working in new and changing environments, I love it all. So I encourage you today, to think about what you would like to change in your life today, what little or large change could you make to your daily habits, your environment, your job, your relationships, that will enhance your skills, knowledge, experience or just make you that little bit happier and/or more content with you and your life.
Change is good, it will sometimes take you out of your comfort zone and into your learning zone.
Change is good, it can be refreshing and revigorating meeting new people and/or being in a new environment
Change is GOOD…….Change is GOOD. 🙂
Please remember, even a small change could make all the difference to your day, try a new fruit or putting fresh flowers in a dull room, it’s amazing how that can uplift your spirits.
I look forward to hearing about the changes you are making – mini or massive I know they will make a positive difference to your life.
I have just finished studying the famous book, Think & Grow Rich by Napolean Hill. Now, I have listened to this audio book before but I have never really studied and fully applied the learning. This time it’s different because I have been applying the knowledge gained and putting it into daily practice. Here is one of my favourite quotes from the book:
“No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief.”
Believe in yourself, believe in your abilities, believe you can do it…..YES YOU CAN!!
I’m in a poetic mood this morning, I say this morning because I haven’t went to sleep yet and it’s way past 1am, so I figured a good time to write a blog post for you to read when you wake up. What’s this poem about? Well I don’t really know, these words just came to mind, they just flowed out of my heart for you. Wishing you a beautiful day today, love to you Clarabelle.
Lost Love and Gain
And all this time,
through all the pain.
She looks behind,
lost love and gain.
I love this quote below, it rings so true for me right now.
It is always tempting to compare yourself to the outcomes of another but I urge you to think only about you, how far you are progressing and if you are doing everything you can to move yourself forward and be the best that you can be.
When you think of it, it really does sound crazy to compare yourself to someone who is much further forward on the Chapters of their own book.
You are the Artist, you are the creator of your own life and you must design it your way. Yes, you may want to use people as role models but don’t compare yourself to them, use their success and achievements to INSPIRE you from within and do it your way – you know, like in the song by Frank Sinatra…..”I Did It My Way”.
I want to tell you a true story of how you can achieve whatever you want to achieve if you really put your mind to it – even if you have no experience at all in that field of interest.
The Beginning of Clarabelle Music
In March 2013 I purchased myself a second-hand keyboard because I wanted to create some instrumental music. I couldn’t play the keyboard at the time but I wanted to learn – teach myself. I created about nine instrumentals within about a two week period – I couldn’t read music, I just wrote numbers on the keys with pencil and “felt the music” and I also just memorised the keys I was playing.
I wanted to transfer each musical piece onto my laptop but I didn’t have the right connecting cables. So I went into a shop in Glasgow City Centre, RS Sound & Light and got chatting to the owner of the shop, Tony. Tony was a very warm and inviting man and he sold me the cables I needed. Whilst chatting to Tony he asked me why I wanted the cables and I told him I was going to be making up my own songs – I said to him “eventually I will have my own CD Album”. Tony said that this was great and that when the CD Album is ready, to bring it into him and he would play it in his shop and also pass the CD onto other DJs he knew so they would also play it for me.
This was so inspiring for me because although I had very little music experience (practically none), Tony didn’t disregard my idea and aspirations – he encouraged and supported me with it. That was it, I was on a mission……..a passionate, exciting, true to myself mission of giving Tony my CD Album – I could see that vision, I could feel it and I believed it.
At this point I hadn’t written any songs……but here’s what happened.
From May 2013 to September 2013 I wrote 25 songs…..from the heart, including the melodies. Between October to December I chose four of my favourite songs which I had only recorded acapella style on Youtube and hired musicians in Ireland (Denis Kilty), Canada (Gary Stitt) and New York (Shako) to create a simple piano and guitar backing track based on my melodies. In January 2014, I went to the Professional Recording Studio, Reeltime Music and recorded my very first EP, Hearts Apart, which contains these original four songs – I had never been to a recording studio before either!!
Across The Globe
Two weeks later I had released my first single, “Runaway Love” on iTunes and other music platforms across the globe and one month after that I was holding my newly created CD Album in my hands – I cried….my tears were of joy, love and pride in what I had accomplished. One of the first things I thought of was, I can give Tony my CD now.
Tony Helped Me
Almost exactly a year later to the date when I first went into Tony’s shop, I very proudly handed him a copy of my CD Album and also a copy for his daughter. Prior to that, Tony had also helped me choose my first PA system and is also supporting me as Professional Compere for my first ever public Gig on 3rd May this year in my home village of Carfin…….how exciting.
I am so grateful for all the help from Tony at RS Sound & Light in Glasgow City Centre and everyone else who has been involved in helping me achieve what I have achieved so far…..I certainly could not have done it without them. A massive thank you also goes out to my best friend Donna Marie Dick who has been amazing in helping me co-ordinate my first two live Gigs in May – she truly is a shining star.
Special thanks also goes out to my wonderful photographer who took some amazing shots of me for my music portfolio (he’s still a bit shy, so doesn’t want me to mention his name yet). There are lots of people I need to thank personally and I will…..not sure if they all want to be mentioned here on this blog, so I will protect their identity for the moment, but I know they know I am so grateful for their contribution.
So there you have it, that’s a short summary of the truth from my musical journey, how amazing is that, I feel so blessed for everything.
I want YOU to believe in YOU, believe in your DREAMS, believe YOU can make them happen and have faith that the right people will cross your path to help you.
I had many barriers in the way…….far to many to mention but when I look at how far I have come I can only ever feel very VERY happy.
I wish you forever happiness, I truly do. Thank you for being here.
I remember when I first heard this quote below, from Dr. Wayne Dyer – it really touched my soul. I thought I would share it with you today and hopefully it will ring some truth for you and connect with you in a special way to take inspired action.
“Don’t die with your music still inside you. Listen to your intuitive inner voice and find what passion stirs your soul. Listen to that inner voice, and don’t get to the end of your life and say, ‘What if my whole life has been wrong?”
I am delighted to share that I posted some of my CDs to different places all over the world this week, here is where my EP, Hearts Apart went to:
Heart, Mind and Soul
It’s so wonderful that I created something from my heart, mind and soul that I can now send to people anywhere in the world. Isn’t this just wonderful because last year at this time I had no idea I would be doing this, it just evolved from this blog by doing poetry and then buying a second hand keyboard. I was also inspired by some other people along the way, people that were already singing and just doing what they love and putting themselves out there. This journey truly is a dream come true and who knows where it will lead to, but all I know is that I am following my heart by doing this and I hope that it touches other peoples’ hearts along the way.
Back to My Roots
I am so looking forward to performing at my two live Gigs in May this year in Scotland…..I will be singing my original songs in a local venue in the little Village of Carfin, where I was brought up as a child…..isn’t it funny, I’m going back to my roots…..it’s like I’ve come full circle.
Follow your heart……what does that truly mean for you?
Keep going, keep going, keep going……I say this mantra to myself if I sense my motivation is a little lower than it should be. Those words “keep going” help me to focus on the goal in hand again.
This week has been a very productive week in terms of planning for my two Gigs in May this year. It really is all systems go and I can honestly say people have been truly amazing, they are offering to help as much as they can and I feel so thankful for it.
This is Day 29 of the Clarabelle 90 Day Challenge and I do feel it’s all going to plan. Taking part in this Challenge has helped me to stay super focused because I have committed myself to it and I faithfully report on my daily progress on my Clarabelle Facebook Page.
I want to wish YOU a Happy Friday and a wonderful weekend, please don’t take life too seriously and just enjoy it……be happy in everything you do.….so that really means, do the things that make you happy.
This dream, this passion of mine, to become a successful Singer-Songwriter is ALWAYS on my mind. Every minute of the day, every moment, every opportunity…….it’s there, all of the time and only stops when I sleep and even that is questionable!! 🙂 I feel enthusiastic, motivated, energised, determined and fulfilled on this journey. This is my happiness journey and I feel it building great momentum and positive energy as times goes on.
Today, I have booked out my first rehearsal hall where I will polish my performance, practice my singing and become familiarised with the Big Stage and I am SO EXCITED!! I feels things are coming together and people seem to be popping out of nowhere to give a helping hand and move me forward on my journey. So a massive thank YOU goes out to YOU for all your continued support and everyone who is helping me along the way – it has not gone unnoticed. 🙂
The funny thing is, if someone had told be 2 years ago that I would be doing this, I would have never believed them in a million years. So it just goes to show, that true dreams can evolve when you least expect it and it’s that passion and desire that keeps me going. I feel really happy when I sing, I feel connected to who I am and IT IS ME!!
Let go of trying to find your dream because as soon as you do that…….it will come right at you. I guess my dream was sleeping inside of me for 30 years and once I awakened, then my dream took a new lease of life.
Thank you for being here and I wish you a truly fulfilling day today.
I have set myself a new 90 Day Challenge which will start on Friday, 7 February 2014 and will last until Wednesday, 7 May 2014. This challenge is to push myself forward with my music career and achieve as much success as I possibly can in this period of time. I have decided to, take it up a level – drive into a new gear and I am excited about this.
If you would like to join me on this 90 Day Challenge that would be absolutely wonderful because we could support each other. What you would need to do is think of something that you want to achieve over the next 90 days and put your full heart and soul into achieving that. It’s amazing the results you can achieve, when you increase your energy levels and focus towards something that you really want.
This 90 Challenge will take pure passion, persistence, discipline, a positive and self empowering attitude, courage, bravery, self belief, faith and a touch of boldness. You may need to take yourself to places you’ve never been……the unknown awaits YOU but so does the success.
So, LET’S DO IT, let’s do this together and achieve our dreams.

CLARABELLE 90 DAY CHALLENGE, LET’S DO THIS TOGETHER.
YOUR DREAMS ARE WAITING FOR YOU.
What are you going to be celebrating at the end of the 90 Days?
I’d really love to know.
A very warm and lovely welcome to this month’s question. I hope you will get the chance to reflect and answer this question for yourself – my answer is also below. I hope you’re having a fabulous start to February. Lots of love Clarabelle.
What do you love doing, you know that one thing that really makes you smile, that really makes you happy…..who or what is it, I would love to know what lights you up inside?
Even this very question is making me smile inside because it is taking me to happy times. I am sure this will come as no surprise to you, but I really do love writing poetry from the heart and also writing songs. What makes me even happier is knowing that these poems and songs are bringing joy to other people, that truly is the icing on the cake for me. I have a vision that one day I will be standing on stage in front of a huge audience and they are singing along to my own songs. I also have a beautiful vision of driving my car and one of my original songs are playing on the radio. This my friends, I truly believe will happen…..I just believe that in my heart of hearts.
So I hope you really think about this question today and if you’re not doing what you love, make sure you give it your priority this month, because you truly deserve to be happy doing what you LOVE doing.
As you know I love to share my poems with you and whilst in reflective mode this morning I wrote the one below……..and even though I know you know this one is about me, I feel it is also about YOU, because we’re all connected in a beautiful way. Be the “happening” of your dreams today. Lots of love Clarabelle.
Will She Make It?
She looks beyond, the stars above. She feels her passion, she embraces the love. For all she has, is all she dreams. Reaching out, to glittering sunbeams. A twisted fate, a serendipity goodbye. Moves her on, many tears she did cry. But she is hope, ambitions from afar. She sees the light, as she raises the bar. No more hurt, no more pain. Will she make it? singing in the rain.
Wow, I am so excited and I just thought it was right to update all my visitors to this Clarabelle blog, especially for those of you who have been following my new music journey.
I uploaded 4 of my original songs onto the music membership website, Music Ray late last night and I now have 6 “Official” fans, woo hoo, this is absolutely amazing for me. I am so happy I could cry….but I won’t, I’ll dance around my living room instead. 🙂
A very special thank you to all of you for your continued support and encouragement whether it is my original music, poetry or inspirational blog posts – long may it continue.
I just thought I would share that one with you today. No matter how many bumps on the road there are, when you are passionate about doing something, it never feels like you have to really force yourself, you never need to fully push because the passion that you have for that thing indeed pulls you forward.
Choose a goal in life that you are passionate about, one that is in alignment with your values and watch yourself soar.
Every month I give you a question to reflect upon and I also provide you with my own answer to that question. Here is this month’s question for you to ponder:
Which of your core values is most important to you?
In my work as a Coach I explore core values with the individuals I work with, I feel it is so important to understand what your values are and what each value means to you. My number one core value without any doubt is “Love”. What does “Love” mean to me? Love is everything, without love for self and for each other, life for me would be meaningless. Love has an invisible power, like no other force, love is the answer to all conflicts and broken down relationships. Love is magnetic, love is nature, love is peace, love is love, is love. “Love Redeems All” (that’s on my Vision Wall).
On 21 December 2012 I was invited to attend a Winter Solstice meditation event. Here is an extract from the invitation:
“This year’s Winter Solstice is an extraordinary event that has been anticipated and speculated by the astrologers for many years. I’m sure we have all heard about the Mayan calendar ending its significant cycle on that day. There is another most powerful event that is taking place on December 21st 2012. On that day the planet earth will be part of the Galactic Alignment that takes place once every 26,000 years. We are having this meditation with the intention to align with this monumental event. When we come together our energies converge to create a powerful magnetic force that attracts the universal energies. Together we are more than the sum of its parts. We do this in support of the transformation and growth which we hope to maintain in the coming year of 2013. This event will never be witnessed by us or by many generations that follow us. We cannot afford to miss this opportunity for honouring and letting go of the Old with grace and gratitude, and embracing the New in trust, surrender and joy.”
I had never been to anything like this before and I was excited to go. It felt really strange at first, just because it was all new to me but I felt I really embraced the event with all my heart. When I came home from the event I drew the following picture of “Love“, at the time I never fully understood what I was drawing, I was…..well, just drawing because it felt right at the time. Now, as I read more on the subjects of “The Quantum Field”, “The Law of Vibration” and other related topics, I am really starting to understand what my drawings mean.
What does love look like to you? If you had to draw a picture of “Love” what would it look like? I’m cheating now because that is more questions. :-)
