Missing at Christmas

Are you missing anyone very special this Christmas? I am, I am really missing someone right now and I won’t be with him this Christmas but I will be with him. every Christmas after that.

I try not to feel too sad about it because there isn’t anything I can do to change the situation this Christmas, so I keep my mind focused on all the other beautiful Christmas times we will have together. I also put lots of focus on what I do have to be thankful for in my life right now and there is a lot, a massive amount actually.

When I am having thoughtful “I am grateful” moments, I feel at peace, I feel inner happiness, serenity and very blessed. So if you are missing someone right now and they can’t be with you for whatever reason, think of what you do have in your life, right now and think of the blessing that is also you.

Love Clarabelle

You Are Beautiful

When the heart is happy

In celebration of reaching over 27,000 visitors to this Clarabelle Blog, I was inspired to write the poem below for you:

You Are Beautiful

A flash in the pan,
A speckle of dust.
A grain of sand,
This is a must.

A soft goodbye,
A slight raindrop.
Sun in the sky,
A beep beep bop.

Happy smiles,
Joyful cuddles.
The sweetest kiss,
Dancing in the puddles.

For all is here,
All is now.
You are beautiful,
I love you, WOW!!

Good Monday Morning to you.  I’m going to share with you today a Gratitude Affirmation from my eBook, It’s All About Gratitude.  Say this affirmation every morning when you wake up for the next week and you will really feel the benefits from it…..believe that.

Life’s Treasures

“I am so very grateful to be present amongst the beauty of life’s treasures:  to love, to live, to learn and to feel so alive in this moment now.”

Wishing you a beautiful start to your week.

Love Clarabelle

“Don’t die with the music still inside you”.

 

 

A Little Thank You

Thank You cards
Clarabelle writing her “Thank You” cards

I’ve been writing out some “Thank You” cards over the weekend, to people I really want to say “Thank You” to, I honestly feel so good doing this.

Who do you want/need to say “Thank You” to?  I am sure it will make your day as much as that person’s day too.  Here is a wee, “Thank You” poem I created:

Thank You

Thank you, is all you need
To uplifts spirits, so true indeed
When you’re grateful, all is well
All is abundant, you can tell
So use these words, everyday
And gratitude will surely, come your way

(Extract from It’s All About Gratitude)

The Law of Gratitude

gratitude

It’s All About Gratitude

When I was researching into the science of gratitude for my eBook, “It’s All About Gratitude” I came across some amazing findings.  Here is an extract from my eBook which relates to the famous book, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles.

“There is a law of gratitude and it is absolutely necessary that you should observe the law.  If you are to get the results you seek, the law of gratitude is the natural principle that action and reaction are always equal and in opposite directions.  To fix your attention on the best is to surround yourself with the best and become the best.  The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best, therefore it tends to become the best.  Faith is born of gratitude.  Every outgoing wave of grateful thanksgiving increases faith.  It is necessary then to cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you and to give thanks continuously.”

If you can be anything today, be truly grateful for all that you have, in this moment right now.  I do hope you feel as blessed as I do.

Lots of love, Clarabelle

Thank You

Thank you
Today, I just want to say thank you……here’s a little poem for you.  Love Clarabelle

Thank You

Thank you, for being here,
all of the time.

Thank you, for your words,
they’re simply divine.

Thank you, for giving me,
strength from within.

Thank you, for “keep going”,
when fears creep in.

Thank you, for the lessons,
I don’t always get it right.

Thank you, for your warmth,
when I can’t sleep at night.

Thank you, two words,
especially for you.

Thank you, you’re everything,
to me and that’s true.

I Am Grateful

It’s All About Gratitude

It's All About Gratitude

There are many things that have helped me to stay grounded, mindful in the moment and to feel truly blessed for what I already have in my life.  Yes, I want to achieve my dreams and become a very successful Singer-Songwriter but it’s so important to enjoy the NOW as much as I can.  I want to enjoy and embrace each baby step of the way.

My Grateful Heart

One thing that has really helped me on this journey is my grateful heart.  Everyday I practice the art of being grateful for everything I already have in my life and even if I’m having a tough day, thinking about what I am grateful for, instantly uplifts my mood.

Rhonda Byrne

My attitude of gratitude really became more intense after reading the book, “The Magic” by Rhonda Byrne, Rhonda is also the Author of the famous books “The Secret”, “The Power” and “Hero”, which I have also read. The book, “The Magic”, I feel came at the right time in my life and it inspired me so much that I decided I wanted to write my own book about Gratitude and its positive benefits.

The Science Behind Gratitude

So for 4 months I studied and researched further into it….I looked into, “The Science Behind Gratitude” and what other credible successful Professionals and famous individuals were saying about it, such as Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Brene Brown, Deepak Chopra, Dr Robert Emmons, Jack Canfield….. and the list goes on – I share some of what they say in my eBook.

My Dream Journey

Gratitude ebook

I truly believe that being grateful everyday has catapulted me even further on my dream journey of Singing-Songwriting, I just know this.  I feel this dream of mine evolved from starting this blog in April 2012 and it is the visitors and followers of this blog that I am so grateful for, over 23,000 hits and counting!!.  You have inspired me to “keep going” so I only felt it was fitting and right do dedicate my Gratitude eBook to you, so I did, thank you.  🙂

How Do I Practice Gratitude?

Gratitude ebook exercises

This is a question that hopefully I answer for you within the eBook.  There is a full section (photo above) on this with a number of practical gratitude exercises for you to do.  It really is important you do them though because it’s like creating a new habit and embedding a new behaviour and positive way of thinking into your heart, mind and soul.  Once that spiritual connection of a grateful heart is made, just you see the good things that come into your life….and they will!!

Where Can I Get  Your eBook?

The eBook is available from Amazon Kindle (Kindle format) and Gumroad (pdf format) and costs less than a cup of coffee from Starbucks and less than a Happy Meal from MacDonalds and believe me this eBook will make you much happier…..and for the long term!!  Click on the appropriate link below to find out more about, It’s All About Gratitude eBook and to instantly download :

AMAZON KINDLE, It’s All About Gratitude

GUMROAD (pdf format) It’s All About Gratitude

I wrote this eBook with a grateful heart for your grateful heart, in the hope that it will help you on your own journey towards your dreams.  Thank you for being here, love to you, Clarabelle.

All About Gratitude

Today’s poem is all about gratitude – one of my top values is being grateful in life.  I hope you like this one and thank you for being here.  Love Clarabelle

I Am Grateful

I am grateful for my health,
and the happiness I see.
Grateful for the sun,
shining down on me.

Grateful for the rainbow,

with colours so bright.
Grateful for the youthfulness,
making me feel light.

I am grateful for,

just everything,
I am grateful for,
the joy it does bring.

For once I forgot,

to thank all that I own.
I was never gratefully mindful,
when I was alone.

But something happened,

to me on my path.
Something so serious,
but now I do laugh.

Because life is what you make it,

see it shine.
Let it dance in your soul,
and you’ll feel better than fine.

Have a grateful heart,

and happy spirit too.
Because an attitude of gratitude,
will always shine through.

Count Your Blessings

“Gratitude neutralises negative emotions” (Sonja Lyubomirsky) 

I am doing a lot of research for my new “It’s All About Gratitude”  eBook on the scientific studies of the relationship between gratitude and happiness and I am wonderfully amazed by the findings.  Below is a Greater Good Science Centre, www.greatergoodscience.org YouTube video of Sonja Lyubomirsky, Professor of Psychology, University of California, Riverside, in which she talks about one of those gratitude studies, “Count Your Blessings” – I am sure you will find it very interesting indeed.

My own preference is most definitely carrying out the practice of daily gratitude because I know this 100% works for me but everyone is different and as the study explains maybe doing this once a week is enough and will have a greater impact for you.

May today be a “Count Your Blessings” day today for you and may it bring you a deeper sense of happiness and contentment into your life.  Love Clarabelle.

 

November’s Question of the Month

True Beauty

At the beginning of every month I pose a question for you to reflect upon and answer for yourself, I also provide you with my own answer to that question.

This month’s question links to the contents of my new eBook, “It’s All About Gratitude”, coming soon!!  The answers that are posted in the comments section of this blog post will contribute to a section within the eBook and I will also link this blog post to it.  It means that if you do choose to comment, which I would really really love, then your comments will be linked and can be accessed by the readers of the eBook and hopefully they will also visit your own blog, I will certainly encourage them to do that.

So this month’s question relates to “Gratitude“, I bet you guessed that one already!!  🙂

Question:

What does the feeling of “Gratitude” feel like to you, i.e. how does “Gratitude” make you feel?

My Answer:

When I am truly grateful for anything I have in life, it makes me feel so wonderful, I feel happy inside, I feel inspired, I feel motivated, I feel energised, I feel at one with myself, I feel I want to help other people, I feel of real value, I feel in harmony and in balance.

Feeling grateful is such a beautiful feeling for me and sometimes words cannot nearly describe what it really feels like.  Feeling grateful makes me feel like I am meant to be here, it connects me to my purpose in life and makes me want to take inspired action.

Gratitude makes my heart smile inside and it touches my soul……it’s a bit like feeling the feelings of love, true love.  When I am grateful I feel connected to a higher purpose, I feel good, I feel loved, I feel so thankful for being alive, right now, in this very moment.

When I feel grateful I want to sing, I want to dance and I want to share my happy feelings with others.

I practice daily gratitude and this is why, because it makes me feel so so so so good.  

I would really really love to know what it feels like for you?

It’s All About Gratitude

About 6 weeks ago I shared on this blog that I was creating an eBook on gratitude, the eBook is entitled, “It’s All About Gratitude”.  I have been working on its content over the last couple of months and I hope to have the eBook published very soon.

In the meantime, I thought I would create a Youtube video which shares a little bit about the eBook and some original quotes from it.  Everything on this Youtube video has been created by me i.e. the photography is all my own, the background music has been created and played by me, the  original quotes are all my own and I created the video too.  I am the first to admit it is not a perfect production but at least it is a start 🙂

I hope you like it and I plan on getting the eBook published very soon, you’ve heard it here first!!

 

This Moment

green river

Give thanks to this moment right now because having gratitude is such a beautiful thing. Have faith in the mystery of the unknown, believe with all your heart that what you truly desire it making its way to you right now.

“People who can sincerely be thankful for things which they own in imagination have real faith.  They will get rich;  they will cause the creation of whatever they want.”  Wallace Wattles (1860-1911)

Vision Wall by Clarabelle

About 18 months ago I shared on here a post regarding a Vision Wall I created, this was strongly based on my belief, faith and imagination of what I wanted to create in my life.  I am delighted to share with you, that most of this has come true for me and I look forward to sharing that with you in a future blog post.  You can also check out the process that I went through on the VISION WALL page of this website.

Thank you for reading this post, lots of love, Clarabelle

Watch this short Youtube video, it touched my heart because I know the power gratitude has and this experiment reveals that and little bit more.  Maybe it will inspire you to “Make the Call”  when you answer the question:  

“What person has made the biggest impact on your life?”

What will make today a great day for you?

I came across this video on Youtube this evening and I really loved it, I thought it was too beautiful not to share it with you.

Give gratitude to the gift of life today, open your heart and let the blessings of gratefulness flow through you.  Lots of love, Clarabelle

What are you grateful for today?

Balloch, Scotland
Balloch, Scotland, 23 August 2013

When you are feeling the power of gratitude from within you are putting good energy into your body and also sending out good vibes into the Universe. Please take a moment to answer this question:

What are you truly grateful for today?

I am grateful for living in Scotland, I love the beautiful landscape, the “4 seasons in one day” Scottish weather 🙂 and the Scottish people.  I love living in Scotland, I really do and the more spiritually aware I am becoming, the more I really appreciate its beauty.

This doesn’t mean I want to live here forever, I do actually believe I will move out of Scotland in the near future, but it just means I am really grateful for Scotland in the “here and now”.

Thank you Bonny Scotland, you truly are very Bonny indeed.

May you bask in the beauty of gratitude today, wherever you are in the world.

Lots of love to you, Clarabelle

Over the years, I get asked a lot of the time to create bespoke poems for colleagues, friends and family and I am now offering this up as a service to others who wish to benefit from it.  I have been working on my own flyer design and I thought I would share it with you today.

I believe that poetry touches the heart in a much more deeper and fulfilling way than a bunch of flowers or box of chocolates could, it is that special gift that lives in the heart of the receiver forever.

I have a simple vision, I want everyone to have a poem, verse or song from Clarabelle because I know it will always come straight from the heart to reach and connect with other hearts.  Much love to you today, as always Clarabelle.

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,

The Magical Power of Thank You

Gratitude has such a magical power, it is more powerful than you could ever imagine, it has the power to change you from within and in doing so change the environment around you. Feel very blessed for everything you have in your life right now, deliberately be grateful for it all, you will then know what I am talking about because you too will be holding the magic in your heart.

I am forever grateful to you for reading these posts and joining me on the path of gratitude.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Lots of love Clarabelle 🙂

The Path of Gratitude

path

Gratitude

I have a lot of gratitude bursting inside of me right now, I know it was always there but I didn’t always show it.  I know I am walking the path of gratitude, I am growing and becoming a better person every day but I want to continue to develop all of this in a natural and very genuine way, it must not be forced.

What a Feeling

Yesterday, I was with a client and he shared with me a “Mood Lift Chart”.….WOW, I just loved this.  The chart scale goes from a score of minus 9 which represents a depressed mood to plus 9 which represents gratitude.  When I looked at this chart I instantly smiled because I knew at that moment in time I was in a grateful mood, the top of the chart – what a feeling!!

I was filled with gratitude most of the day yesterday, I reached out to people I know, because I wanted to thank them for being in my life right now.  I just know that those simple words of “thank you” meant so much to me and the person receiving them.

A simple thank you goes a long long way, who do you want to thank today for being in your life right now?  Go on, reach out to them, say those beautiful words with meaning and purpose and you will be camping at the top of the “Mood Lift Chart”.

Thank you, thank you, thank YOU for reading this blog post, thank you, thank you, thank you for your support, encouragement and comments.  Thank YOU.

Lots of love to you to today, Clarabelle

Gratitude Prayer

When my heart is touched with the gift of giving, I feel so abundantly grateful inside.  Today my heart melts with happiness when a follower of this blog sent me such a beautiful message that has inspired the following gratitude prayer.

The gift of gratitude is so empowering and spreads the most loving energy out to the universe.

I thank you all for being here and more.  May your day be filled with loving thoughts of gratitude and abundance.  Much love and gratitude to you, Clarabelle.

Thank you for the abundance of love that surrounds me.

Thank you for the beautiful people I share my life with;

And thank you for the knowing that you are always there for me.

As I take each step on my journey of life;

I am grateful for all that I am and all that I am becoming.

May each breath of life that I take;

Fill me with true love, light and happiness.

Amen

Beauty is All Around

I am receiving such beautiful comments from followers of this blog and these wonderful sentiments of support are really touching my heart.  I want to thank everyone for their heartfelt comments, I am so grateful for them.  This next poem is all about that.  Have a beautifully inspired day, love Clarabelle.

Beauty is all around

Beauty is all Around

Touching words, moving hearts,

Lost in the moment, in all of its parts.

Feelings are special, unique and true,

Gratitude means everything, and I believe in you.

Love is on the horizon, its energy attracts me,

Beauty is all around, as far as the eyes can see.

Be Grateful for Life

Poem, Be Grateful For Life

If you want to uplift your mood instantly, just think about all the things in life that you are grateful for, it will certainly put a smile on your face.  That is what this poem is all about, I wrote it to express my gratitude in the present moment and boost my spirits – I felt great after it. What are you grateful for?

Be Grateful for Life

 Create ‘flow’ in your life, let worries melt away

Yesterday has gone but the learning can stay

Tomorrow is not here, live for today

Enjoy each precious moment, in every way

Be grateful for life, the moon and the sun

Be grateful for your family and everyone

Smile at your neighbours and the stranger on the street

For your smile is contagious, to all that you meet

Happy is the heart, that glows from within

Embrace life and love and forever you’ll win
