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

Meet Stacey – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Let Go

What word did you choose and why?

Let Go

This year, I chose Let Go. I want peace. I want to let go of some control and let go of things that don’t make me happy. I want to start letting go.

 This year I am focusing on the words Let Go. I want peace. I want to be happy and let go of things that just don’t bring me joy anymore. I want to let go of some control, which can feel really hard at times. I am working to create a better work/life balance. I want to let go of the stress I feel when that balance is off, and to just be fully present with my family when we have the chance to be together.

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 younger Stacey, I’d tell her to stop worrying about what others think of you. It doesn’t matter. I’ve learned that I like my friend circle small because I have such incredible connections with them, so I’d probably tell myself to just work on cultivating those relationships that matter. 

            If my daughter were to carry one piece of advice through life’s challenges, I’d tell her to do what’s best for her. It’s okay to put yourself first and to not spend your time trying to please others. I’m hoping that by focusing on letting go, and setting some new boundaries in place this year I can be an example of that for her. My goal at the end of this year is to scale back. I want to take on less and do it better. 




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.
