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

Meet Coralee – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Adventurous

What word did you choose and why?


I chose the word Adventurous. I tend to stay in my routines. I do believe that consistency is good, but pushing past your comfort zone a bit can be really amazing too. I plan to travel more this year, and to create adventures right where I am. I want to lean into the spontaneous.

I can be spontaneous, but I tend to get really set in my routines. I feel good in a routine, and I do believe that consistency is a good thing, but I want to try more things that make me uncomfortable. I plan to travel more this year, and push my limits a bit by trying new things like white water rafting, zip lining, and even just going on more hikes. I’ll travel to Italy and Canada this year, and am looking for more things to add to my adventure list. It feels good to push past your boundaries just a bit, and do things that make you uncomfortable.




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?
