The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?
Meet Traci – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Resilient
What word did you choose and why?
My mother died in 2019, I’ve been clean since 1996. When she passed, I found that I was removing myself from people without knowing I was doing it. Resilient means to go thru something traumatic or devastating and to be able to pull myself back into the light.
I finally became ok with who I am and not worrying about everyone else. It feels so good. Everyone always said, “one day you just won’t worry about what others think” and I feel like I’m finally there. I just want to live life and be happy.
If you could go back and talk to a younger version of yourself, what would you tell her?
Wear the swimsuit, eat the cake. Stay away from him, them, that… Be ok in your own skin.
