The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?
Meet Brittney – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Optimism
What word did you choose and why?
I chose the word Optimism. Life is going to have struggles, but you can choose how you view those struggles. We will always get through it. It will always get better. We will always move toward optimism.
This year I am focusing on the word Optimism. Everyone has struggles in their life, but ultimately you can choose the perspective through which you view those. I look at our record so far and we always get through it. Things always get better. So why not carry a little more optimism with me during that process? The smallest gesture can be the silver lining you hold on to, or it could be a huge milestone that you are so proud of. There is a light to be found in every situation. By consciously practicing gratitude, I’ve found that optimism seems a little bit easier to find.
If there is one piece of advice that I hope our kids hold on to, it’s that they will come across situations in this life that are challenging, and that they don’t quite feel equipped to handle – but they can. I want them to remember that they are really strong, and they just need to look at what they hold inside of them to remember that they are capable. By understanding who they are and knowing their strength, they can do anything.
