Pause. is a collection of self-reflections that I gathered from friends and family, written in the form of a letter to themselves. My intention in creating this book is to encourage people to develop a habit of self-reflection, whether it’s reflecting on what you value, your strengths and weaknesses, your truths, or the good and bad. Cultivating introspection takes time and practice, but doing so can lead you closer to a better you.

There are two ways of reading this book:

  1. Reading the letters chronologically, which is the most literal way.
  2. Reading sequentially through the cut-outs, which culminates in my very own letter to myself.

I hope that sharing these personal accounts, along with lifting text from my friends and family to create my own self-reflection, will inspire readers to pause and give thought to their own self-journey.
