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

Meet Tanya – sometimes even with the brightest smiles – we still struggle to quiet the voices in our minds.  However, I hope that when she comes back to me in a year – she sees her value stronger than she does today.

What word did you choose and why?

Enough

I never think I am enough.  This year i decided that i want to change my mindset.  I’m pretty, skinny, smart, funny enough. This is the start of my transition into thinking better things.  I want to set a good example for my 24 year old daughter.

Why focus on this now?

I decided this was the year because i am not in a good place – something has to change.  Perhaps if start thinking positively i will change my mindset.  I want my health to get better without up and down dieting.  I want to change me to help her focus on the positive.

Meet Tamara – Yall this little firecracker is so much fun!

What word did you choose and why?

Fearless

I am tired of being fearful of success. Sometimes you get scared of success and you back off a little bit. Of course we are fearful of what others think and don’t want to hear someone tell you no. I just need to get out there and do it.

I had an epiphany on a zoom call. Just get over it and do it. I went and grabbed my bible and looked up fear in the back. Psalms 23:4 is the scripture that I first came to. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

My goal this year is to push past fear and become the powerful woman I know that I am.

Meet Bud.  This fella – after sitting and talking with him – I quickly realized that I could have spent all day talking to him.  He is one of those people that you just want to learn more about and share life with.

What word did you choose and why?

Forgiveness

It kinda came out of nowhere.  This entire year has been about getting back to me.  I needed to quit holding on to stuff.  Forgiveness needed to be about forgiving myself of who i used to be. Part of forgiving myself, was seeing some changes in my father.  

How did you decide that Forgiveness was where your focus needed to be?

Getting back into church.Being a part of the church and the family that it is, has made a huge difference.  I love the old me, because he’s not afraid of anything – but i hate the way it makes me feel.  I had to take control of myself. My body. My health.  To take care of the others in my life, i needed to get myself to a healthy point.

Meet Madison  This kind hearted girl is going to make such a difference.  It has been an absolute honor to get to know her over the last couple of years.  She is soft spoken but a heart that is loudly fierce.  She embodies the word love and it’s so incredible to watch her grow into the woman she will be.

What word did you choose and why?

Love

We have enough hate in the world and we have enough people that don’t love each other.  I feel like everyone should love everyone and there is no flaw that someone has that should you make you feel as though you can’t love them.

What is something you want to accomplish this year?

I would love to start drivers ed.  I want to start my first job.  I want to keep up my straight A streak.

When i get out of school – i really want to pursue the culinary path.  Outside of my career – I want to continue to work with little kids of my church.

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

Meet Cadence – this beautiful girl stole my heart.  When I first sit down with someone, my goal is to always get to know them.  Yes, it’s a quick visit – but my hope is that they will share a little piece of their heart with me. Cadence was very honest and shared the following with me. “I have a medical condition, narcolepsy w/ catalepsy.  Any emotions trigger an episode.  I’ve learned how to stop feeling emotions.”

What word did you choose and why?

Feel

As I have gotten older, and with medication, it has gotten better.  I want to see if I can let down some walls to start feeling emotions again.  I want to have a relationship.  I want to experience life.  I don’t have a LOT of friendships because I keep distant from others.  I don’t want to tell people that I have this condition because I don’t want to be seen as someone with a disability.

Thoughts from her Step – Mom, Amanda

Amanda (her step mom) chose a word for her.  A word that she wants Cadence to embrace. Grace.  “I want the biblical definition of Grace for her- to be covered by Gods love.  I want her to have grace for other people so she can build stronger relationships with others. I want her to experience life and all that it holds for her.”
