Help Me Be…

Posted on: March 8th, 2013 by Christine

Help Me Be…


Strong enough to be vulnerable.

 Wise enough to realize how little I know.

 Loving enough to embrace my “enemy.”

 Tender enough to be powerful.

 Smart enough to realize I can’t do it alone.

 Brilliant enough to shine the light of others.

 Doubtful enough to know the power of faith.

 Courageous enough to share my truth.

 ~Christine Kloser

    Beautiful! Thank-you. Those times group connection are beyond words! I especially loved your words – “They were lead by ME… and I was lead by THEM.”
    I have experienced this and I agree with you – this is the core. Much Love and Gratitude to you Christine.

      Thank you Desiree. There is so much power in being a “leader” and allowing your own clients to lead you, too. This is what makes the magic possible… what keeps us all eye-to-eye and heart-to-heart in our interactions with one another. A true blessing.

    Your poem spoke to me today. I am usually the strong one and lead others, however I’ve been sick lately. Therefore, I have been blessed with this opportunity to allow others to support me and care for me. Not easy for me, but it is so wonderful to be reminded that my world doesn’t fall apart when I’m vulnerable. Actually many aspects of your poem reflect what I’m going through now. Thank you for sharing.

      Thank you for your comment Jeanette. I’m glad to hear the poem hit home for you with what you’re going through and am sending you prayers for a speedy recovery. In the meantime, may you receive ALL of the love coming your way now. FYI… I just had a friend ask for help after her surgery later this week and my heart is FULL knowing I’ll be bringing her a meal this weekend. It’s your receiving that allows others to give of themselves.

  3. Nice Christine, Beautiful
    One thought, you say Brilliant enough to shine the light of others.
    Does the phrase “Brilliant enough to reflect the light of others” (instead of shine) resonate even better for you?

    • Christine says:

      Thank you David. I’ll see how “reflect” sits. At first “hit” it still feels like shine is the right words for me… I’ll keep you posted.

    It’s beautiful Christine – thank you so much for sharing your poem. For me, the Vulnerable part struck a chord – a beautiful chord, though!! With love, Joy

    Dear Christine,
    I was very moved by this beautiful poem — to tears actually. AND by your loving description of your weekend with the women in your ‘soul family’ — loved the “re-uniting with those we had never met before.” Really beautiful.
    Thank you so much.
    As I go off to teach my writing class today, I shall think of this poem and what you said about the group you were with, and will open my heart even more to my group of women (whom I do love), and share more of myself. Thank you.
    I think you are doing very good work in our world.

      Thank you so much Melba. I’m glad to hear that even though I felt the words didn’t do my experience with my “soul family” justice that you really got what I wanted to communicate.

    Lovely! Very bueatiful! Thanks so much for sharing!


  7. Christine,

    You constantly amaze me with your wisdom, faith and beauty. You are truly a great addition to my life, and I’ll be forever grateful for getting to know you. Even though I wasn’t at the retreat, I truly felt the full spirit and caring coming from the group on the Skype call. Your authenticity is lovely and you manage to transmit that to others.
