Oh Beautiful Life

I have just created this poem and it is about how I feel about life right now, I love it, I love life……I love life, thank you.  Clarabelle

When the heart is happy

Oh Beautiful Life

Oh beautiful life,
I love you so.

Sometimes I forget,
When I’m feeling low.

But you’re always there,
by my side.

Loving me,
no secrets to hide.

For you are amazing,
a magical gift.

Your face always smiling,
my mood it does uplift.

Thank you my life,
so precious and pure.

Each breath that I take,
is a miracle cure.

I Am A Survivor

Clarabelle Quotes

Beautiful Energy

You are strong, so very very strong, no matter what troubles you face each day, you will always come out stronger in the end.  You have everything you need right now to win every battle that comes your way.  Your armour is your loving heart, abundant soul, happy spirit and the truth and wisdom of your beautiful mind.  This next poem is for you, because you are a survivor and I am a survivor and together we will conquer the storms of today and the mysteries of tomorrow, to illuminate the wonders in our heart.  Thank you my friends for being here and bringing your beautiful energy into my path.  Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

I Am A Survivor 

I am a survivor, strong and pure
Fighting many battles, this is for sure
A warrior of the night, catching dreams in my soul
Holding on tight, until I reach the goal

I am a  survivor, nothing stops me
I strive for the best, I am what I want to be
I challenge the past, you don’t live here anymore
When negativity comes knocking, I don’t open the door

I am a survivor, hear my calling
I’m alive and kicking, never falling
My spirit is happy, I breathe life into me
Shining and sparkling, like ice on the sea

I am a survivor, my heart is so full
With love and abundance, this is my pull
I glide in the now, I dance on the waves
I see beauty around me, an energy haze

I am survivor, and so are YOU
Believe in yourself, and all you do
You are a survivor, you are the one
You are amazing, brighter than the sun

Soul Growth

soul growth

Do something today to honour your soul.  Something that will deeply connect you to your true self.  What might this be?  Well, for me it could be any of the following:

  • Taking time to pray
  • Make up my own prayer
  • Write a heartfelt poem
  • Spend some time reflecting on my Vision Wall
  • Declutter the house
  • Writing a song
  • Creating music
  • Reading a book on a subject I’m passionate about
  • Writing a meaningful and purposeful blog post 🙂
  • Meditating
  • Writing a Gratitude List
  • Listening to my favourite music
  • Spending time with my close family and friends
  • Going for a long run
  • A walk amongst nature
  • Helping someone

The above, are just some things that help my own soul growth but for you in might be something completely different.  Do whatever works for you, as along as you do it.  Soul growth is such a special type of development that really gets to the core of who you really are.  Personally, I really love it and I will continue every day to develop my soul.

What will you do today to honour your soul?

Wising you a beautiful day filled with smiles, joy and happiness, may your soul shine with great courage, true spirit and unconditional love.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle.

Leaving a Legacy

Inspiration

The late Mr Stephen R. Covey who wrote one of my most favourite books “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”, spoke about leaving a legacy and he certainly did. Well, I do honestly believe that through my creative expressions on this blog and all the songs I have written from the heart, my legacy lies before me.  My Sister’s children (my beautiful nieces and nephew) and their children and their children and so on can have access to all my writings here on this blog……and I trust that it will inspire them to lead a fulfilling life and inspire others along the way.

Journey

My journey is by no means over, I will be here for at least another 60 years because I want to be posting about my 100th birthday celebrations.  🙂 🙂 🙂  I just know now that at this moment in time if I were not to write another blog post or write another song, there is more than enough to go around.  I feel very happy indeed with that thought, very happy indeed. This inspired my next poem below, lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.

If I Had To Go

If I had to go, don’t feel sad
Nothing is lost, nothing is bad
For I have left, a special prize
Words of hope and surprise
So others can learn, from my soul
Expressions of life, to make them whole
My legacy is here and in my songs
This is where, my heart belongs
It will never surrender and always thrive
My creative writings, keep me alive

You Get What You Give

Moonlight Sky from Clarabelle’s Back Garden 24.07.13

I was listening to positive affirmations this morning by Louise Hay and one of the things she said really stuck with me, she said “give out that which you wish to receive”.  Wow, I feel this is so true, the more beauty you give out to this Universe the more it will come back to you – like a boomerang that has picked up more goodness along the way. Here is a wee poem just about that, hopefully it will help you to think about what postive changes you want to make in your life.  Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.

You Get What You Give

You get what you give
So give a lot
You receive what you think
Look at what you’ve got
If you want to change all
You know what to do
Because Heart, mind and emotions
These feelings become true

Face the Music

copy-timeline-25.jpg

Time stands still for no one, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock….second after second life goes by, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, there goes another moment.   STOP!!!  THINK!!  and ask yourself this question, “What are YOU going to do?”  Remember it’s still ticking, every breath you take, every blink of an eye, the second hand on the clock goes round.  ACT!! Just do what you need to do to challenge yourself and make your life better today.  Be brave, be bold, step out of your comfort zone and just you GO FOR IT!!  I know I am.  This next poem is for you my lovely friends, I hope you make each moment count today.  Lots of love to you Clarabelle.

Face the Music

I hear it play
I know its sound
From up above
And underground
I feel it move
Shift a beat
I feel its presence
Dancing in my feet
The candle burns
The clock ticks by
Around it goes
Flying high
Face the music
See its light
It is with you
Burning bright
This is your time
Know this and more
Building bridges
A new path to explore
There’s no straight line
No end, no beginning
There is only love
Your heart is winning

Is This An Illusion

golden summer meadow

I woke up before my alarm went off this morning, I love it when that happens.  I looked out of the window and the morning sun shines brightly on my beautiful little garden, I am grateful for this day, I am grateful for the magic in the air….I am grateful.  Here is a little poem I wrote for you, wishing you a wonderful day wherever you are in the world.  Lots of love, Clarabelle

Is This An Illusion

The purest blue
I’ve ever seen
No clouds going by
The air is clean
Dew glistens, upon the trees
Hi hear her whispers
Like honey bees
Her sound is high
Far into the sky
Diamond moments
Of time gone by
And all she thinks
Is all she sees
Is this an illusion
I ask you please
She likes it here
She likes it all
She’s feeling good
She’s standing tall
Her spirit flows
Like the river in her heart
Mystical and magical
Her dreams play the part

From Venus to Mars

When I woke up this morning the first words I wrote on my notepad were “Love is my reflection”, this will be a future song and I wrote this poem especially for you.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

From Venus to Mars

She looks in the mirror
What does she see?
She sees the light
Infinite eternity
For love is her reflection
Shining in her soul
Love is the answer
Love is the goal
Like an angel without wings
She sings to the stars
The Universe is calling
From Venus to Mars
Happy is her home
Happiness is her now
And with her beautiful childlike spirit
She smiles and takes a bow

A New Hello

goodbye hello quotes

A New Hello

She said her last goodbye
Not a tear she did cry
For she knows, the time is right
A better future, a star so bright
Footprints in her heart, pave the way
A blessed tomorrow, is cherished today
And forever in her soul she holds
Secret whispers, painted gold
The sound is clear, reflective and true
Mystery is beyond, the sky so blue
The happy sun, makes her glow
Goodbye friends,  she has a new hello

The Stunning Moonlight

Moonlight Sky from Clarabelle’s Back Garden 24.07.13

I worked all through the night yesterday and just before I went to bed at 5.45am for a few hours I looked out of my patio doors which lead into my garden and took this photograph of the stunning moonlight.  I had one of my BEST days yesterday, I feel the stunning moonlight gave me some beautiful energy that created moments of magic throughout my day.  I am very grateful for all that I have and I am very grateful for you here right now. Thank you, beautiful you, love Clarabelle.

The Stunning Moonlight

It’s 5.45am, I’ve worked all through the night
I look out of my window and see the stunning moonlight
I step into the garden, the birds tweet, tweet, tweet
The air is so tranquil, my heart whispers a beat
I am grateful for this moment, so special and rare
I gaze at the white circle, all day I could stare
I feel its magic, penetrating me
It’s watching me closely, setting me free
I feel its energy, uplifting my soul
It’s connecting with my spirit, engaging my goal
My day has not ended but yet it begins
My bed is calling but my heart it still sings
Goodbye Mr Moonlight, I’ll see you again
I enjoyed our conversation, now I’ll put down my pen

Peace in her Heart

peace in her heart

I have a lovely feeling of peace and contentment flowing through my body this morning, I am aware of it and treasure it right now.  I just had to write, here is what came out.  I hope you enjoy.  May your happy spirit touch other hearts today.  Love Clarabelle

Peace in her Heart

She woke up, with peace in her heart today
No inner battles, in her way
The fight has gone, war no more
Everything leads, to the fulfilment door
Now it’s different, now she can see
That an opened heart, will let this be
She knows that her gift, travels afar
She knows that her energy, raises the bar
And as the soft wind blows, contentment plays a tune
Happiness in the air, goodnight Mr Moon
This misty morning, is full of white
She feels its presence, she is the light
Her breath is silent, and simply pure
Because she is so certain, she is so sure
That all her dreams, are alive inside
The vision is here, nothing to hide
For her soul is connected, dancing free
Her spirit is full, of happy energy
But who is, this miracle she?
She can be “he” and she is “me”

Sometimes….

Beautiful sky

What do you think about sometimes?  My own answer is given in this poem – don’t forget the silence between the lines.

Sometimes 

Sometimes I think, why am I here?
What is my purpose, is this clear?

Sometimes I think, who am I?
Is this life, passing me by?

Sometimes I think, far to much,
Over analysing, out of touch.

Sometimes I think, happiness is here,
Bringing me joy, full of good cheer.

Sometimes I think, be in the now,
Embrace the moment, not the how.

Sometimes I think, fast fast fast,
Making me dizzy, this cannot last.

Sometimes I don’t think, then I smile,
Peace from within, is here for a while.

Most times I let, my heart whisper to me,
Beautiful music, my soul dances free.

So sometimes free your mind, from thinking at all,
For ALL times the light appears, when darkness does fall

July – Question of the Month

Sunshine

Welcome to the first day of July.  At the beginning of each month I give you a question to ponder and answer for yourself, I also share my own answer with you.  Below is July’s question for you:

Question:  

What one thing could you do today, that would make a positive difference to your life right now?

My Answer:

I know that when I pray for myself and for others it always makes me feel better and I do feel that my prayers are always answered.  Before I say my prayers I say “Thank you” for listening and at the end of my prayers I say “Thank you” for answering my prayers.  So this month I will start and end each day with a prayer to help me and others stay strong, focused and committed on the journey of our life purpose.  What is my life purpose?   Well it would take a long time for me to answer that one, but let’s just say that this blog is definitely a massive part of that.

Thank you for dropping by today and I hope this question helps you to think about what you need/want to do in your life to make positive changes happen for you.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

Space, what is it?

sunset

Sometimes you just need to give yourself a little space.  Space to be free of thinking, give space the space it needs to nourish your soul and help you grow.

Space, what is it?  Space is everything, let me explain in the following poem:

Space

Space is love and light from within,
Space is the Angels, letting you in.
Space is the nothingness, the gap of life,
Space is tranquility from trouble and strife.
Space is our heart, and all we desire,
Space is the oxygen, fueling the fire.
Space is empty, magic in the air,
Space is forever, lifting you there.
Space is the truth, feel it flow,
Space is special, this I know,
Space creates dreams, inside and out,
Space connects souls, walking about.
Create the space, to breathe in time,
Create the space, to feel divine.
Sometimes space, is all you need,
Space is the light, taking the lead.

“Thank YOU”

Thank YOU

Words of Wisdom

You may remember a post I did recently called “The Zig Zag Way of Life”, so I thought I would directly apply my own words of wisdom, which I did yesterday.

As I have previously shared on this blog, I am training for the Loch Ness Marathon in September this year and I am following a strict marathon training programme where yesterday I had to run 7 miles.  I had a specific running route pre-planned in my head, however whilst thinking about my zig-zag post, I decided to go on a  zig-zag route rather than the usual straighter route.  So there I went zig-zagging my way across the local town, when I suddenly realised I was approaching the Cemetery where my Dad is buried.  I decided right there and then I would run into the Cemetery and visit my Dad’s gravestone.

It Also Felt Right

It was a strange kind of feeling at first running into the Cemetery, but it also felt right.  I run up to my Dad’s gravestone, kissed it and said “Thank You Dad” and I tearfully ran off again to finish my run.  When I run away from my Dad’s gravestone I immediately choked up with tears, I honestly couldn’t breathe for the heavy sadness I felt.  I love my Dad and I miss him dearly and I was, for just a short few seconds, overwhelmed with the deepest emotion – 10 seconds later I was absolutely fine.

I felt so good the rest of the day and I will tell you why.  I am learning a lot about the power of saying “thank you” in a meaningful way and I don’t think I ever properly said it to my Dad when he was alive, I am sure I always felt it, but I never said it to him and for me yesterday, I just had this deep urge to tell him “Thank You”, so I did.

Zig-Zagging

So my decision to change the route led me to zig-zagging my way to saying thank you to my Dad, I know his happy spirit heard my loving whispers.

Who do you want to say “thank you” to today? Who do you want to thank for being in your life? I do hope this post encourages you to do just that.

Thank you, thank you, thank YOU for reading this post, it really does mean a lot to me.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle,

Me and My Heart

Love heart

You have a good heart, remember that and it is always with you.   This next poem is inspired by just that.  Have a lovely day with your heart today, Clarabelle

Me and My Heart

Me and My Heart, we travel together;
No matter what time, no matter the weather.
We are strong in the sunshine, stronger in the rain,
When we laugh out loud, we are free from pain.
Sometimes we are heavy, closed off to it all;
Sometimes we are happy, having a ball.
But one thing’s for sure, I’ll never change mine;
For me and my heart, we’re simply divine.

Take Your First Flight

Take your first flight

I am waiting on a colleague to call me this morning and during this tranquil time before we speak I thought I would write a little poem, because I feel I haven’t shared a poem on here for a while.  So here is what poured out of my being, it took less than 60 seconds to create, so I guess I must be connected to the right sources for this to happen – this is creative flow at its very best.  I hope you enjoy, lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.

Take Your First Flight

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.
And 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.

Take on the Impossible!!

A little bit of inspiration goes a long long way.  I came across this YouTube video a few weeks back, you may already have seen it but I feel I just had to share it on here, it is very empowering indeed.  Arthur in the video is such a true inspiration to each and everyone of us, may his story inspire you to take on what others see as the “impossible”.

Much love to you in this very moment, we all need a little bit of love to come our way, Clarabelle.

Have a serious chat with yourself!!

Beautiful sunset

I am having a serious chat with myself today, I have the energy and enthusiasm to really move forward in life, to achieve all that I want to achieve, to embrace life and all its challenges and to breathe in the most beautiful view from the top of the highest mountain.

The conversation I am having with myself today is this:

Out with the old and make room for the new, this is a MUST for me, old everything is going, I have to make room for the new, it needs the space to thrive, it needs space to breathe and it needs me to create the space for it.  This new energy will bring an abundance of everything I’ve ever wanted and I know NOW is the time to make room for it.  I need to get out of my own way and just do it.  This is serious stuff, this is MY LIFE, there is no going back, there is only right now and the dreams that I hold in my heart.  I will make this change for myself, I will clear out ALL of the old and welcome the new with true love, open arms and a warm smile.

YOU

I sincerely challenge you today, to have a serious conversation with yourself:

What do you need to do?
What do you need to commit to?
What fears do you have to face that are holding you back?

Now is the time, this moment is all we have, DO IT FOR YOU, it’s your life GO GET IT!!

Wishing you a beautiful day today filled with committed action and inspiration that will live in your heart forever.  Lots of love, Clarabelle

Pass on the Learnings

We all have tough days, we all have hard times, we all suffer deep sadness and heartache.  I believe one day, very soon, you will look back at this moment and realise that the poem below holds many truths.  You will silently smile, pass on the learnings and hold your dreams in your arms.  Maybe, just maybe, you needed to hear this today, remember you are loved, very very much and someone is thinking of you right now, because they love you with the most deepest unconditional love.  Treasure that thought, hold it in your heart and let it bring true light into the darkness.  Your spirit is sparkling now, I see it, I feel it and I know you can too.  Much much love to you today as always, Clarabelle.

When the Rain Falls

You may feel pain today, it may be tough;

You may be worried today, weather is rough.

You may feel like crying, because you’re lonely inside;

You may feeling like dying, because your heart has lost pride.

But please believe me, for this one is true;

There is an abundance of love, surrounding you.

It is helping you release, all of that stress;

Building you from within, when life seems a mess.

Angels are dancing and holding you tight;

The sun is behind the clouds, shining on you bright,

When the rain falls, it is to refresh your soul;

It washes away the darkness, making you whole.

Right now you are loved, someone is thinking of you;

They hold you in their dreams and pray your wishes will come true.

To suffer in this moment, will not make you well;

Believe this message, like a magical spell.

May it awaken your spirits, turn your frown into a smile;

I am with you my friend, for forever and a while.

How Did I Get Here?

Destiny

How Did I Get Here?

I feel light today, free from unnecessary pressures and unwanted stress.  I feel at one with myself, I feel like I am floating in the goodness of the Universe.   I feel as light as the air I breathe in, I feel calmness and full of gratitude.  How did I get here, to this magical place, to this beautiful feeling of oneness and wellbeing?  I do believe I unlocked my heart, let go of the ego and brought myself back to me.  It has taken a while, almost 40 years but I got there, not in the end but in the beginning, for I have arrived, once again!!  This next poem poured out of my soul this morning, may it bring you a touch of what you need in your life right now.  Lots of love Clarabelle

Destiny

My heart moves, slowly towards the light;

Into the unknown, it’s shining bright.

Destiny decided, this is where you’ll be;

A dance step forward, I’m feeling free.

I take pleasure in this ride, it just feels right;

My soul is blessed, beneath the stars and moonlight.

I thank you Universe, you’ve did me good;

My spirits are high, I have deep gratitude.

To enter the unknown, and all its mystery

Keeps me alive in this moment, without the history.

So I treasure this day, the time is NOW;

Sunsets and butterflies, make me feel WOW!!

Window 172 – Shut the door on your past and fly

Indeed, “flying is our only freedom”, thank you “A Window of Wisdom” for this blog post. I really love it. Clarabelle

A Window Of Wisdom

photo

“If we return to what we walked away from, out of  fear, and for comfort, our growth will become a vision of the past.”

When our spirit becomes caged by life circumstances;  a soft tug from our heart-strings will pull us into our desired direction to where we can be set free.  But along the way of our new  path, there will be moments of difficulty that will trigger fear, and past reflections, of only happy memories that will try to pull us back into our cage… and if we return, we will find our self sitting in our cage, and reflecting on when we used to fly.

We must keep moving forward to soar higher in flight, by  embracing the fears of the unknown future, for they will always try to tell us that the cage was cozy, but in reality, flying is our only freedom.

~ WOW ~

You are…….

You are amazing, unique and very special indeed, there is no one else exactly like you. You have the capacity to achieve all that you have ever dreamed of, I want you to visualise that now, see yourself in that place of abundance, love and lots of beautiful laughter. Yesterday is now a distant a memory, tomorrow is not here yet, embrace today, welcome the NOW with open arms, go out for a walk and let the gentle breeze outside blow away the remaining cobwebs.

Awakening Your Soul

Right now, I want you to take 3 long deep breaths, inhale positivity and exhale worries and stress, give yourself a pat on the shoulder and smile……this is your first step to feeling alive in this moment, awakening your soul and freeing your spirit to the thriving energy of the Universe.

This next poem is for you, I wrote it especially for you, because you are so special to me and you are truly loved in this world, more that you will ever know.  Believe that someone out there right now is thinking of you and holds you very close to their heart.

Have a beautiful day today my friends. Much love to you Clarabelle.

The Key to Change

Stop, think, listen so deep,

The key to change, is for you to keep.

The combination is simple, think out of the box,

Discover the opportunity, under the rocks.

At the centre of the cave, a heart beats strong,

A musical drum, dancing to the song.

A mystical moment, so special and rare,

The magic is within you, uncover and share.

Let Courage Through

What is Ultimately Important to You?

I strongly believe that having time to self reflect on your life, your progress and your self awareness, really helps you to discover who you really are, what you really want and what is ultimately important to you.  This next poem, was written in creative flow and during a moment of self reflection.

Every Moment is a Moment to Change

Take some quiet time today to reflect on where you are at in life and what (if anything) needs to change.  There is love after the heartache, there is peace after the pain, there is happiness after the sadness and you soon will have pure energy again.  Every moment is a moment to change for the better, be the champion of your own life and act as though it is impossible to fail.  Much love to you today Clarabelle.

Let Courage Through

Stop for a minute, pick up a pen,

Jot down some questions, reflect again.

Create space in your head, give it some time,

Listen to the whispers, that make your heart shine.

Live in the moment, let courage through,

Baby steps closer, discover the true you.

How Do You Know?

How do you know when you are happy, I mean really really happy?  This next poem is inspired by some thoughts around that question.  I do hope you are feeling happy today, even if you just get in touch with your own inner happiness for a moment, right now, it will give you an instant boost.  Much love and smiles to you today.  Clarabelle

How do you know?
How do you know?

How Do You Know?

How do you know, when a heart speaks with truth?

What does it tell you, in the telephone booth?

Open the secret, share it with your soul,

It’s the ultimate path, to make you feel whole.

Happiness is here, happiness is now,

Applaud each moment, take a bow.

No matter if sunshine, no matter if rain,

Break down the barriers, to feel at one again.

Natural Flow

When I am out running, I often feel like I fall into some sort of hypnotic or meditative state, it’s hard to explain and put into words but whilst out running today I was thinking about it.  Sometimes my runs are easy, free-flowing, effortless and natural (like yesterday) and sometimes my runs feel really tough (like today).  Whilst out running this morning I was thinking about, what makes the difference in me? I know that when my mind is busy, like today, my runs are tougher and when my mind is silent, it feels like, as the runner, I become the run.  This then got me thinking about other things that would also apply to, i.e. the lover becomes the love, the singer becomes the song etc.. etc..  Which inspired this next poem.  Whatever you do today, may it feel natural, loving and in spirit.  Love Clarabelle

Natural Flow
Natural Flow

Natural Flow

The runner becomes the run;

The laughter becomes the fun.

The walker becomes the walk;

The talker becomes the talk.

This is what I know;

This is natural flow.

***

The lover becomes the love;

The rain flows from the cloud above.

The singer becomes the song;

Solitude is where I belong.

This is what I feel;

This for me is real.

***

The artist becomes the art;

True spirit flows from your heart.

The swimmer becomes the sea;

Creative flow comes from feeling free.

This for me is true;

I believe for me and you.

***

This poem is part of the poet;

A gift and how I know it.

Dancing with Love

Love is always there, love is abundant, love is free flowing, love is your magical connection to everything…….love just is!!!  This next inspirational quote is inspired by, yes, you’ve guessed it, love.  May your day today be filled with love and happiness, Clarabelle.  

 

Love just is
Love just is

“Where there is love,

there is me and my shadow,

softly dancing together.”

(Clarabelle)

A Vision of Love

This photograph below was taken on a beautiful winter’s day in Bonny Scotland, a stunning little place called Balmaha.  It inspired this next inspirational quote.  May you open your heart today and see an inspirational vision of love right there in front of you.  Clarabelle

“Love has endless beauty,

like the sun shining on a winter’s day.”

True Beauty

The “roots determine the fruits”, what does this mean?  It means that if you work on the root of a problem rather than the symptom you can create everlasting change.  Nourish the root with love, that’s what my next inspirational quote for you is all about.  May your day be filled with love and encouragement, Clarabelle.

Nourish it with Love
Nourish it with Love

“True beauty is within the seed,

nourish it with love,

and then love will grow.”

(Clarabelle)

Magic is in You

You are the miracle of your life, you are the magic, welcome it with open arms, embrace each moment as an opportunity to be a better version of you.  This next inspirational quote by me is all about that.  Wishing you a magical day, love Clarabelle.

Magic is in You
Magic is in You

“The silent lake speaks many words,

true magic comes from within you.”

(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

Opportunity is Now
Opportunity is Now

“Seize, the day,

Seize the hour,

Seize the moment……

Opportunity is NOW!”

(Clarabelle)

 

 

Dreams in her Soul

Who is She?

I write with ‘she’ in mind. Who is she?  What can she become?  What does she dream about?  What hopes are in her heart?  What happiness does she bring to others?  What if she just lived?  What if she became alive, right now, in this moment?  What wonders would she bring to this world?  “She” may be you, “She”, may be me.  Who is she?  This next poem is inspired by just that.  May the beauty of each day, shine in your soul forever. Much love to you today, Clarabelle

Dreams in her Soul
Dreams in her Soul

Dreams in her Soul

She writes with love, she writes with light;

Early in the morning, and last thing at night.

She opens her heart, to everyone;

Sharing her secrets, thinking of fun.

A happy soul, she shares it with glee;

Positive thoughts, changing me.

Hope is on the horizon, look up to the sun;

Shadows paint a pathway, over where she has run.

Beauty is in her heartbeat, shining afar;

Smiles last forever, and wherever you are.

She is a miracle, a symbol of life;

Forgotten are her days, of trouble and strife.

Her life has moved on, she dances alive;

Dreams in her soul, love in her heart does thrive.

My Soul is Free

I am thinking about my happy childhood today, so I decide to take a snapshot memory from one of these true moments and share it with you today.  Release the child inside of you, just for a moment, just for today, be that child once more, it feels so loving and carefree.  Lots of love, Clarabelle.  

My Soul is Free

My Soul is Free

I am 8 years old, I am playing in the swing park and look up to the pretty red sky on a sweet summers night. I see a million lights sparkling in the distance, like the most precious jewels I have ever seen, they mesmerize me.  It feels like I am in a hypnotic state, my heart feels happy, my soul is free, I dream, I visualise my future….

“I’ll be there one day”, I say;

Where?….

Here, right now, I can be there any moment of any day, for my childlike imagination, can take me there.  Whenever I want to go there and without physical travel, I can instantly be there.

Where is there?

There is “Happiness” my friend, Happiness is my home and my heart has always lived there.

Rainbow Days

I had the most amazing childhood, it was full of fun, adventure and magical spirit.  I was surrounded by an abundance of friends, love and laughter….I hold these special memories very close to my heart, they are locked in my soul forever…..we will never be apart!!  This next poem is inspired by my childhood dreams and those treasured times of the past that have shaped who I am today.  If I ever feel I have travelled afar from who I really am, I think of those rainbow days and those long summer sunsets, where I danced in the wind, laughed in the rain and played with love in my heart, every moment of every day.  I wish you a day filled with a childlike free spirit that makes you feel so very happy inside.  I am smiling now, I do hope you are.  Love, Clarabelle

Rainbow Days
Rainbow Days

Rainbow Days

Sweet sweet child in me, playful and full of fun;

Dancing in the rain, laughing under the sun.

Happy was my heart, true friends were all around;

My soul skipped to the music, love in me profound.

Fresh air on my face, the clouds so magical too;

Hopping in an out of puddles, this is what I do.

I wake up with a song, playing in my heart;

Singing to this tune, I repeat this special part.

Smiles, hugs and warmth, fill my rainbow days;

Light shines from within me, reflecting spectrum rays.

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.

Happiness Dances Around You

Happiness can be accessed at any moment and at any time of the day.  Give up the ghost of darkness, for your inner light is special and it is connected to an abundance of pure love.  May happiness dance around you today and always.  Love Clarabelle.  This next poem is for you.  Have a beautiful day.  

Happiness Dances Around You
Happiness Dances Around You

Happiness Dances Around You

Oh sweet and  precious moment, I cherish you now;

Long have I awaited, to free me from this how.

I feel my heart glisten, spreading happy thoughts;

Releasing me from pain, undoing the difficult knots.

For once when I was sad, life did get me down;

A painted smile upon my face, masking the frown.

But even through that anguish, a light in me did shine;

The beauty of an open door, a white butterfly was the sign.

Today life is on the up, I’m reaching many heights;

My spirit is alive and I’m flying amongst the kites.

Light as a feather, I’m nourished at the soul;

My eyes sparkle like diamonds, when once they looked like coal.

So pick up the pace of life, your heart has a story to tell;

Happiness dances around you, it’s time to break out of your shell
