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!

New View


It is because of you I had the opportunity to be broken open and made new!
~Kerri Elizabeth~


It is because of you
My cry reaches the sky
That my smile has different shapes and catches me by surprise
That I mourn at times to a depth thats secret inside
It is because of you

I see a view through a kaleidoscope that’s brand-new
It is because of you

Seeing is not limited to a visual cue
Feelings lead to breakthroughs
Experience simply informs us there’s more
It is because of you
I see the sky at such magnitude
And feel the grass blades kiss my toes
It is because of you

My heartbeats with respect to my souls truth
It is because of you
I feel the wind shift each hair on my face
It is because of you
I see fire in a candle with a reflection of truth
I smell every scent traveling through
It is because of you
The stars sing a constant melody I pursue
It is because of you
My pain is not only sadness but something I look forward to
Because of you I am new
Because of you the sunshines with rays filled with an essence I cling to

It is because of you
Beyond all clouds
I live with a deeper view
SUNSHINE




I have had to listen to the presence screaming to be heard inside of me.

Accepting the woman I am as a whole
meant I needed to embrace all of me right where I was standing and search the reflection of brokenness and shame and guilt not meant to weigh me down but an opportunity to be found.
My grief continues to give me a new view.
YES, I cry so hard I can’t breathe and THEN I let go!
So this is what is new!
Resistance is now a voice of surrender, let go to see the view, then decide if it’s a place to stand or move into.
It is waiting for you.
Our heart speaks first and your choice may hurt, but until a letting go happens your souls truth is captive.
Everything has a beginning and an end ,except GOD, so everything I do, I do, knowing GODS promise and view is to see me through.
I’m still here, aren’t you?
