10,000 Blog Hits – Thank YOU

Clarabelle blog hits

Today I am celebrating 10,000 blog hits and I am super excited and abundantly happy about this.

I want to truly thank YOU for making this happen, you have visited my blog on a daily basis and you have inspired and encouraged me to keep going.

I truly feel that this blog is part of my life now, I just absolutely love it and I really do hope it shows and that it offers you some real value when you visit.

I started this Clarabelle Blog on 20 April 2012, it was unplanned, something came over me that day and I just acted on what I was feeling and I now know I was so right for doing that.  I remember that moment very clearly because I was super excited to get it going and my first blog post was a poem I created called “Superhero” about a friend of mine.

I have developed and grown with this blog and it will continue to evolve as my career transition to Singer/Songwriter takes shape.  I do hope you stick around for the long term, because I really do love it when you visit and I love reading your comments, I always make a point to respond to every comment on this blog.

Thank you my friends, thank you from the core of my heart, you contribute so much to my happy spirit…..long may it continue.

Lots of love and gratitude goes out to you today,  a very happy Clarabelle

Field of Love

I had this thought whilst out running yesterday morning, it certainly made me think and maybe because I am very much a ‘people person’ i.e. I love people, is why I think this way.

golden summer meadow

Golden Summer Meadow

Imagine you were walking alone through a beautiful golden summer meadow, beneath the bluest of skies, with the sun beaming down on all the colours of the flowers around you, the scenery is so stunning it has a white haze around it, as if you were in your own beautiful dream.

You feel lots of love around you, you feel happy, contented and at peace, you are grateful for this moment, you feel very blessed indeed.  Imagine that moment for yourself right now, if you’re anything like me, you feel so happy and have a soft smile upon your face. What is it that makes you feel that way, when you walk through the golden summer meadow, what makes you feel at one?

Think About This Now

Now I’m going to switch this up a little bit, imagine everything is the same as above but the only difference is, you now know that you are the only person living in this world whilst walking through the beautiful golden summer meadow, think about this now, how does it make you feel?  I thought about this, the surroundings have not changed but for me, now I feel alone, now I feel lifeless, now I feel lacking in energy, now I feel dead inside……why do I feel this way?  

No Life But Your Own 

For me, it is because there are no people to share this experience with, no family or friends to go home and talk to, no conversations to look forward to, no laughter shared with another, no life but your own, no relationships to nurture, no one to give your love to, no one to love, just to give love to yourself.

So I am thinking, that you have can as much self love within you to reach the stars and back but if you don’t have other people in your life to share it with, to give your love to, it becomes dead, it doesn’t thrive, it doesn’t grow.

Field of Love

You see this made me think about how we are all connected, we are all connected with that invisible field of love, love’s energy is keeping this Universe alive and the best way for the Universe to grow and thrive is to share your love with others and in doing so you get more love.

A little love goes a long way, you will never be alone in the beautiful golden summer meadow as long as there is love inside of you and the knowing that it is reaching out to others.

Your love is so powerful, more powerful than you will ever know but I feel the key is to ensure you share it, you give yourself the opportunity to express it, you give it, this I feel is what will ignite the inner flame of your own love, it will take root and nourish every part of your very being.

Another way of looking at it is this, imagine you’re the only person in this world with a loving heart……..I think that’s another blog post.

Thank you for taking the time to read my running reflections, would be good to know what you think of it all, I’d love to know.

Wishing you a beautiful day filled with love, Clarabelle

What do you do?

What do you do?

Sometimes when we are going through the deepest of pain, your best creative work can be produced.  Right now this hurts, it is a live experience for me, however, I have an unbelieveable amount of inner strength, I express what I feel and I become stronger.  We live, we love, we loss – we give, we love, we gain.  I hope you enjoy this next poem, love Clarabelle.

What do you do?

What do you do, when faced with deep pain?
Emotional hell, love lost again.
What do you do, when all trust has gone?
Before you thought of someone, from dusk till dawn.
What do you do, when your heart is so sad?
You want to hold on, but that would be bad.
What do you do, in the midst of it all?
You build up more barriers, to create a brick wall.

Let me tell you, when tears they do fall,
There is a reason, for you to stand tall.
Life is not easy, love can turn cold,
Be confident in your soul, be bright, be bold
Nothing can break you, nothing at all,
This sadness is temporary, hear my call.
A new love will come, and shine like a star,
Reaching out to you, so special you are.

Keep your self-love, respect all of you,
A passionate heart, will always break through.
Love grows from within, it travels afar,
Needing no transport, train, plane or car.
Your love is pure, gentle and true,
It will always find, the right person for you.
So smile in the morning, wipe away the tears,
A new love will be born, staying with you for years.

A Special Kind of Love

“You can’t force love in another, all you can do is love yourself.” (Clarabelle)

I woke up this morning and that was the first thought that came into my head, so what does this mean?  For me, it means many things but the one true sentiment from this sentence is really about having self-love, only then will you attract real true love into your life.  Love attracts love and when you have self-love then you will be a magnet for pure love from another   This next poem is inspired by just that, focus on the power in you, put your energy into your own self-love and believe me, you will be surrounded with an abundance of love from others, that is a special kind of love.

A special kind of love

A Special Kind of Love

There is a special kind of love, dancing in me;

Flowing through my veins, setting me free.

A burning energy of joy, happiness and light;

Capturing my soul, in the heat of the night.

Focus on yourself, give attention to you;

Your spirit welcomes, pure love in what you do.

The right person will come, for they never left your side;

Self-love is your answer, hold it in your heart with pride.
