The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?
Meet Ashley – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Enough
What word did you choose and why?
I chose the word Enough. I am working to remember that I am enough. The love that is present and stable in my life reassures me that I am enough. Even in the hard moments, I am enough.
This year I am focusing on the word Enough. I am working to remember that I am enough, and that I’ve spent enough time around people and things who felt inauthentic. I find reassurance in the love that is not only present in my life, but also stable in my life. It’s okay to show your vulnerability and emotions to your kids, because they should know that those feelings can exist without causing you to doubt whether you are enough. Even in the hard moments, you are enough. Even in the hard moments, I am enough. I don’t want my daughter to grow up questioning whether or not she is enough. She is and will always be enough.
If you could go back and talk to a younger version of yourself, what would you say?
If I could talk to the younger version of me, I’d tell that Ashely to be more patient. You don’t always have to just jump, you can think about it some first and decide if it’s really going to serve you and your family.
