Pause Reflection on 2017

Pause the book debuted in 2017

Pause the book, and yours truly, has had one incredible year. In between prepping & launching Pause in April and winding down the year, I got married, moved in with my fiance/husband, and landed a new role at Google. I also wrote and was published in dozens of national and international journals and magazines and spoke at events where my message of Pause was heard and understood.

I am also aware of what lies ahead - whether it's continuing to spread the message of pause for people to be more self-aware to choose differently whether it's what you'll have for lunch, to take a risk that otherwise would have been avoided, or taking action in your community. I encourage you to pause too. Pausing to reflect what you want to keep doing, how you want to be, and what you want to start as an important ritual to begin every year. This year, I'll be off in a few weeks to India, where I'll be pausing for 3 weeks "off the grid" and getting married (again!) in Lucknow, India and enjoying a honeymoon pause. I'll be taking intentional time to reflect, and I hope you pause to do the same at this winter (or summer) solstice, and changing of the season as we begin a year anew.
