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

I chose the word Enough.

Why does the word enough resonate with you?

I chose the word enough because it is a concept I have always struggled with.  Never pretty enough, never a first choice, never successful enough, never… just enough.  Those are all thoughts that i have struggled with throughout life.  Some times it gets better and then some times it’s a little overwhelming.  It wasn’t until I was forced to stand up on my own and figure out how to make things work that I started realizing I was enough.  I was enough of each of those things and I was capable of being more.   Life circumstances cause you to have loud voices in your mind and some times they are louder than what you know in your heart.  Today, with the support and love of my wife, I believe a little stronger each day that I am enough.  I may always want more… but I think that is a trait that will push me to be more than enough as I continue to grow.

What do you hope your impact is on the world?

I truly hope that I am able to give people around me a sense of love and a friendship that changes them in some way.  I want to the world to be kinder and more beautiful… and sometimes that starts with how we see ourself.  I am a believer that I am who I am today in spite of my past, not because of it.  Bad things happen… those are the things that push me harder to be more.  Instead of wallowing in what has happened, I use it to drive a desire to rise above.  I hope that I am able to show others that they are capable of more than they believe.

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.

For more information on purchasing a necklace, please visit Woolard’s Custom Jewelers online store.

What is The BE Project?

Have you ever stopped to think about who or what you want to be?  Most often there is a word that drives you.  If you sit in the silence and really think about what type of person you want to be… there will be a word, sometimes more than one word, that will guide you along and push you to keep being a better version of yourself.  This photo project has become something that has touched my heart and hopefully those that have participated. I chose to shoot all of the images in black and white because I wanted the least amount of distractions.  Just the human and the word.   This project is the stories of some amazing people, their stories, and what these words mean to them.  Some have participated each of the 4 years we have done this, some are new each time.  It’s an amazing honor to follow along in their journey and document who they are becoming.
