In 2011, a group of wonderfully authentic women was assembled for a series of evenings to be recognized as the “one little word club”. Each woman was to choose a word- a word to focus on, internalize, reflect upon and be accountable for as we all went about the daily lives we were uniquely drowning in. Whether it was our careers, marriages, children or the need to keep up with our social media image, we were all overwhelmed and in search of something to hold onto. For one woman, the word was “PAUSE.” It was that word that stood out to this tribe of brave women. We all need a moment of Pause when life starts to spin wildly out of control and so The Press Pause Project was born.
