In a World Where You Can BE Anything… What will you choose?

Coralee chooses Resilient

Why does the word Resilient resonate with you?

“My word chose me. Resilient is my word for this season.  The last couple of years, I had to be resilient…actually, i’ve always had to be resilient.  Sometimes life gives you yucky stuff that causes you to be resilient through it all. All the words speak to me but for now, this is the word that carries me through the day to day good and bad.  This year I plan on working better at taking better care of me and healing.”

If you could give your kids one piece of advice that they carry with them throughout life… what would that be?

“For my daughter, I would tell her she needs to know she’s beautiful inside and out.. and own it. Don’t second guess what you can do.  Just because you have a crazy idea doesn’t mean it is stupid, I might just be brilliant.  Stay true to who you are.  Never give up on who you are for someone else.

For my son, I would tell him to keep being kind.  Don’t get distracted by “stuff”.  Celebrate Tuesday.  Make pie.  Buy flowers on Tuesday and not just Valentine’s Day.”

If you could go back and tell 15 year old you anything… what would you say to her?

“A boy doesn’t define you.  Don’t make choices that you may regret later. Don’t ever worry about being the only girl in the room.”

The BE Necklace Line – created by Woolard’s Custom Jewelers

In 2016, I partnered with a good friend of mine and Woolard’s Custom Jewelers in Burleson, TX  to create a necklace line.  The idea and intent behind these necklaces was to be a gentle reminder of you we are striving to be, day in and day out.  We often forget that beyond all of that, all of the day to day responsibilities and challenges… we are strong, beautiful, inspiring and so many other things.  We are greater than what we feel every day. To remember that you are capable of great things. If you could BE anything… what would you BE?  The stories you are reading here on the blog are to celebrate women and learn more about why they have chosen the words that resonate with them.
