The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?
Meet Leandra – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Determined
What word did you choose and why?
This year I chose the word Determined. I have a lot of goals this year, and I’m determined to work toward them. I am scheduling my time to accommodate that work. I’m determined to spend more time with my family, and to make my way home more often. I am determined to try new things. I’m determined to accomplish my goals.
I have so many goals that I want to accomplish this year, and I’m determined to stay focused and put in the work to accomplish those. I want to get back into running. I used to run and I loved it. I miss it and I’m willing to work for that consistency again. I’m determined to try new things, and forge relationships with new people. I’m also determined to spent more intentional time at home, with my family and with my mother, and am scheduling trips home every other month to accommodate that.
If you could go back and talk to a younger version of yourself, what would you say?
If I could go back and talk to my younger self, I think I’d just remind her that being kind is the best thing you can do for others. Even your siblings. You really just never know what someone is going through, and a little kindness and thoughtfulness can truly make such a difference.
