SHARE YOUR BE STORY

  1. Click on the image above to download and print our BE sign template.
  2. Write a word or phrase on the line that expresses how you want to BE.
  3. Take your picture with your BE sign.
  4. Share your pic on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter along with the story of how you want to BE in this world, and tag it with #theBEstories.
How do we “be” in an increasingly busy world? Our society is so focused on producing and acquiring monetary success, that it can be easy to forget how to slow down and ensure you are living a life of your own making.

How do we change the ever-popular question of “What do you do?” to “How do you want to BE in this world?”

Chapter Be is exploring these questions through The Be Stories – a pilot project documenting people’s individual paths to being. I will be at various events and visiting organizations, where participants can sit with me for a five minute interview about whatever it is that they choose to write on the BE Board. These stories will be documented on this page and on social media via #theBEstories.

The more we share our BE intentions with others, the more likely we are to live them!
