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

Meet Michelle – This woman has one of the kindest spirits I’ve ever seen.  She’s a hustler, she works hard for her dreams and she is now doing the work to ensure that her body serves her well.

What word did you choose and why?


I hit my biggest weight ever towards the end of 2021 and i decided i wanted to do something different with my life.  I wanted to become healthy spiritually, in my body and in my business.  Healthy is the word to motivate me this year.  Taking it slow and making the right choices along the way. I never felt like i could just be myself.  It took a lot of courage to hit that wall and see that I am worthy.  It took finding like minded people and the path to become a better person and a healthy person.  I want to be able to walk into a store and buy anything and not feel restricted.  I want to feel comfortable with my body.

What do you want to accomplish this year?

To hit my target size.  As long as i stay on track, it is completely attainable. 



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?
