The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?
Meet Leslie – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Loyal.
What word did you choose and why?
This year I chose the word Loyal. I am a loyal person – my family and my friends can tell you that. I’m loyal to my job – my coworkers and supervisors can tell you that. I’m at a point in my life now where I want to be loyal to myself. You can’t pour from an empty cup, so I’ve started saying no and protecting my time, and really focusing on how I can make the most of the time that I have with the ones that I love. I plan to travel more, spend time with my family, and really work to not forget who I am outside of a wife and a mother again, because I’ve been down that road. I don’t have to ever be somebody’s anything except me. Through the changes I’m making in my life and with my work, I really feel like I’m focusing on what I need to now. I will continue to be loyal to myself.
