86/100: Be Ecstatic

86/100 || Meet the Be Mobile – aka Beatrice! This is what I have been hard at work planning behind the Instagram scenes, and I was finally able to pick her up on day 86 of The 100 Day Project! In two weeks, I will be taking Chapter Be on the road to interview people across America for “The Being of a Nation.” Chapter Be aims to switch the question from “What do you … CONTINUE READING

84/100: Be Your Own Teacher

84/100 || Yesterday was a hectic day with trying to get my contract job finished up and balancing it with deadlines for my upcoming Chapter Be project. I felt like I needed something to take my mind away from all of that, so decided that for my playful activity I would watch some YouTube tutorials on making origami. And – while it did take my mind away from my work, all it did was put … CONTINUE READING

83/100: Be Unique

83/100 || The Chapter Be production that I am working on now is a big one with lots of decisions to be made and pretty quickly! I am living into my 2017 BE Mantra of “Be Collaborative” and employing some others to help me in the process! I don’t do so well having to make decisions quickly – it is in direct opposition to my analysis paralysis condition! So, this challenge is good for me! … CONTINUE READING

82/100: Be Encouraged

82/100 || Saturday was a jammed back day, but my favorite part was getting to watch one of my friends be playful – in all her piano playing glory! The amazing Kathy Lee held a piano recital so all her friends could come and watch her perform a piece that she has been working on for 9.5 months!!! She took piano when she was younger, but decided to pick it back up again about a … CONTINUE READING

81/100: Be Motivated

81/100 || So this might be a little bit of a cheat, but watching the newly released “Glow” on Netflix was my play for Friday! I *might* have done some major binging after a bit of a stressful day, and it did the job of helping me retreat from the stress and be immersed into the world of 1980s women wrestlers. Now, I have never been a wrestling fan, but since this show was a … CONTINUE READING

80/100: Be Absurd

80/100 || Toes are naturally funny – amazing – but funny. Underappreciated some might say. When I was younger, and on a road trip with my family, my older sister decided it was high time that she named all of our toes based on what she thought they looked like to her. Mine were christened “men in business suits,” and it felt pretty spot on. I have endearingly called them that ever since. Thursday felt … CONTINUE READING

79/100: Be Cheeky

79/100 || Last night I finally had the chance to check out the new El Five, and besides the pretentiousness of getting upstairs to the restaurant, the food was yummy, the bartenders were wonderful and the views were spectacular. It was such a lovely warm night, and getting the chance to sit above the city with a friend and some rosé made it really feel like summer is officially here!

But…my playful act actually came … CONTINUE READING

78/100: Be a Storyteller

78/100 || I was gifted The Storymatic by my brother-in-love, Adam, and decided to have some storytelling fun with it on Tuesday. The premise is that you pull cards from the stack and create a story from it. I do so much writing, that I instead decided to draw out my story. I use the word “drawing” loosely as it is not something that I am entirely comfortable doing – but that is exactly why … CONTINUE READING

77/100: Be a Good Neighbor

77/100 || How well do you know your neighbors? Embarrassingly, I do not know mine very well. Enough to say hello, but if I am honest – I wish I knew them a little better. So, I decided that I would leave a little message for those who also walk the pathway that I walk almost every day. Just a small little something in the hopes that when one of my neighbors passes by, it … CONTINUE READING
