Pivotal In-site 365+ celebrated 2 years in service on October 29, 2022. To be completely honest, it’s been a whirlwind of a first two years. I’m full of gratification and gratitude.
Pivotal In-site 365+ has since served several new industries with effective marketing in the form of authentic, memorable messaging for product, service and event promotion. We’ve also been thrilled to produce more captivating, in-the-moment coverage in direct partnership with Digital Suplex Studios for sublime, cinematic multimedia services.
From working with the Founder of the International Human Trafficking & Social Justice Institute to promote the 19th annual, global conference -
All-in-all, the majority of this second year of Pivotal In-site 365+ was spent signed off and out of all scroll-based social media platform accounts. A significant challenge for anyone, it has been especially so, as much of my work previously resulted from social media marketing, which had grown to be a specialty to a fault that made it feel necessary to take 2022 off social media.
The truth is when it comes to work-life balance, I simply never had it (until now). My work ethic and drive were always soaring so sky-high that I gave my all to everything I did work-wise so much that I was essentially working all the time. Happily, too! I love doing what I do.
When it finally came time to turn work “off” if only for personal bare minimum care or dare I say freedom to play, I didn’t know I could do it. It had been so long since I separated work from life that work was how I lived because work was how to survive and also, I thought, how to thrive.
Last year, I knew I needed to change the nonstop work-life imbalance. I was feeling suddenly and completely burnt to a crisp as a direct result of this “all work-no play” trap of a mentality. And we all know how that turns out - we’ve all seen The Shining. Have you seen the new Doctor Sleep yet? We just recently watched it - highly recommend! Pretty extraordinary film.
Speaking of movies, it had been a while since I felt capable of giving attention to a film. I’d just fall asleep a few minutes in, like it was a hypnotic lullaby - immediate narcolepsy. This year that changed entirely. I can watch movies! And I follow the story, beginning to end. It's so nice to be able to share that I can actually watch movies again - with my full, undivided attention.
When a movie just doesn't capture my attention, instead of falling asleep, I float off into my mind and daydream up a story all my own like I used to when I was young, wild, free and full of dreams larger than life. This, too, seems to be in a magical state of resurrection within since signing out of all social media accounts for 2022. My prismatic imagination is back in action!
Along with it, I can newly, fully pay attention to the pulse of this present moment. I am always here now, wherever I am. Prior to taking 2022 off social media, I was always scrolling away, too distracted to touch this moment. To taste it. Sit with it. Smile as I breathe it in. Laugh as I let go. Listen to the howling swirl of the wind blowing more leaves free to flip and twirl off and away from the one and only tree they ever call home before letting go once and for all. Full circle.
This is when I realized taking 2022 offline - social media wise - made a pivotal change for Pivotal In-site in the way that it has reignited all of my previously sad and saturated, sleepy senses due to sensory overload from endlessly scrolling social media. Thus I am so honored to introduce the grand start to this third chapter of another fresh 365+ days ahead with yours truly sharing PIVOTAL IN-SITE ‘N SENSE.
Two years down with plenty more in store. Plus a major move just ahead! We are relocating again very soon! Juicy details to come.
Thank you, always, for being here with me! It means the absolute world - truly.
Cosmic Latte Cheers,
Miny Calapa (XO.Britt!)
