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

Leah chose Resilient

Why does this word resonate with you?

“Life is always complicated.  No matter your age, or where you are in your life, I think resilience is a skillset that we need to have to just get through things.  There will always be something that will try to prevent your journey and change its course.  If you can be resilient and bounce back you can know that your past doesn’t determine future. I think you learn it more as you get older.  But it’s important to know that whatever happens is not forever.”


What advice would you give your boys as they continue to evolve in life?

“I want them to be confident in who they are.  Everyone’s journey is going to be different.  Not everything is a highlight reel.  Know that most people that are successful, aren’t successful on the first try. Failure is a part of life.  It is what helps you grow and move forward.  Being confident enough in who you are to fail and still keep pushing forward.  Be respectful.  You just never know what is happening in someone’s world and you have to give them grace and be respectful.”

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.

Want to read more stories from others in our community and their BE words?  Head over to the BE Project Page and read the stories of the amazing humans that have participated. 

I challenge you to find a word that resonates with you.  Who do you want to strive to be?  What word leads you day to day?  Join us in our project – what word will describe who you want to BE?
