I searched for you and me

She dared herself to live with courage and found courage in living!
~Kerri-Elizabeth~

I searched for you and me

I looked high and low, in front and behind every tree

I glanced off the cliffs below

I searched long and hard, did you know

In the clouds and in the lakes

I searched rivers and mountains with no breaks

I called for you and no one replied

I cried for you inside

I drove miles and miles looking for a glimpse to pull aside

I longed for you and knew you longed for me

To find you was beyond my reach

I was looking for you 

Missing every queue

I looked for the depth of what I should be

Who someone else wanted to see

I lost sight of my own dreams

I thought I was lost where I once was found

Then one day courage stood its ground

Vulnerability spoke with a fierce sound

Wherever you go, there you will be

I’m you and me

~Kerri Elizabeth

When we experience life, life is also experiencing us, I believe. When we go farther and faster and search for ourselves instead of the experiences that creates our selves ,we miss the queues that it is ourselves we are escaping.

When we run from ourselves, we run from our faith, our beliefs, our dreams and our core foundation. When we deny our own existence is not enough because of someone else’s opinion or judgement, then we deny our ability to grow, to serve, to lead, to inspire, to be driven, to reach, to grasp courage with all your might and LIVE beyond limitations set by ourselves or others.

We become stuck within another or others lives and deny our own growth waiting for another growth. The best gift you can give yourself and another is the freedom to be loved at the exact place you are so they have room to move forward. This is courageous!

LIVE WITH COURAGE!

Inquire Within

Trust is developed from how you inquire from within!

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

Dare to live with a curious inquiring from within
Believe in something you’ve never known
Trust in your heart with out questioning the mind
How many petals do you need to land on “love me” to believe it
Renew your spirit and polish your curves
Surround yourself in natures lights
And rest into the darkness of the glowing night

SUNSHINE

Trust is not broken from another action, unless we define it that way.  Once someone wrongs us, we stay within that action and own it and live it, losing trust and limiting our love for life and our ability to connect with others.

If we hold that wrong, we then continue to give power to the wrong and the person we feel that did it. In the process of healing I found there also has to be a letting go of distrust and caution to a point you are limiting your own life.

Live with freedom and send back any bad energy to the person dealing it. The minute you decide to give yourself permission to interact within a negative space you take that energy on as your own.

Sender wins and the loss of trust is now building from within.

If it’s being delivered negatively it’s not yours, breathe and physically move your arms in a way that you can mentally, emotionally and physically remove and send it back to sender.

DONE, move out of their energy space, build trust within yourself, this is where defense is dropped. When we respond in defense we have already lost, defense is guilt, a place within we lost trust.

Believe in something you never have……..an example might be believing that 10 deep breathes before you respond will save you a rollercoaster of reactions.

TRUST ME!

LOVE SHOWS

In our most authentic place is where we trust enough to fall and rise!

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

Happiness shines like the sun

Joyous is in the grass that tickles your toes

Courageous rides on the fluffiness of a cloud

Fearing not the unknown

Grace will slide down rainbows and sing out loud

Tears will create lakes where mermaids are found

Stars shake sprinkles in the sky

Falling in love with the Most High

Rock me and sing lullabies

I will trust in you, there are no goodbyes

Reflection, show me my image from God’s eyes

Let beauty build forth from the inside

I pray puppies chase my giggles and sleep by me at night

Leaping into wiggles as if in full flight

Laughter ruffle feathers on a porcupine

No feathers on a porcupine, you say

Ridiculous play

Must a porcupine say, I have no feathers today

In its actions you’ll know

If a feather falls upon you just so

Sunshine

It is in my daily life I see the masks we all wear to try to find where we belong. We laugh at jokes we don’t understand, we go to jobs that build anothers dream. We get stuck in a place our worth is defined by another.

ANYTHING less than our authentic selves serves no one other than our scars.

Courage is when we trust ourselves to trust GOD to break us free from the wonder if the person beside us has feathers or quills that will bind us.

Warrior wounds tell our story, the quills will fly no matter how fast or how high you dive. You will struggle and you will get hurt, if you didn’t you would never know the difference between a porcupine and a bird or a puppy and a wrong turn.

Thats why Christ died, so you had a chance to rise when you fall!
