The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?

Meet Sara – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Balance

What word did you choose and why?


I chose the word Balance. I’ve lived in black or white for a long time, but now I need more of the gray zone. I’ve begun setting boundaries with my time. I’ve started to say “no.” I’m not willing to sacrifice my family time, and will continue to set boundaries to find that balance that I need.

This year my word is balance. Simply put, I need to find balance in my life, especially when it comes to work. For a long time, I’ve lived in either black or white, but never the gray zone. Now I feel like I need that gray zone. I recently got married, and became a stepmom to the coolest and most loving seven-year-old, and that is a part of my life I’m not willing to give an inch on. I’ve started setting boundaries with my time and even saying no, which was not an easy step mentally for me to take, but I did it. Sometimes when you’ve worked at the disposal of others for so long, they can find it difficult to accept your new boundaries, but luckily my clients have been really understanding and encouraging as I make these changes.

If you could go back and talk to a younger version of yourself, what would you say?

            If I could go back and talk to a younger version of myself, I’d tell her to jump in and go for it. Just do it and don’t be afraid. It will all work out and you’ll be better off for it.




The BE Project with Beautiful Evolutions Photography

The BE Project was created in 2016.  Two crazy girls had an idea and it came to life on a napkin at lunch one day. They partnered with a local jeweler, Woolards Custom Jewelry and a beautiful necklace was created.  What began as a marketing campaign turned in to an annual photo project that has allowed people to share a word that is important to them and why that word guides them.  Each year, in January, the project opens back up for registrations.  One week is dedicated to photographing the incredible people that want to join us.  All images are black and white to keep from any distractions.  Just the human and their word.

Head over to THE BE Project page read some of the incredible stories that have been shared with us.
