POV (I think that’s what the young ones use on Instagram… actually hold on let me check…)
Yep, I got it right:
point of view
POV stands for point of view. On TikTok, POV is often used in videos or as a hashtag to indicate that the video is meant to be watched as if the viewer were present or the viewer is in a specific situation.
OK so my current POV
Standing at my desk writing my sister share with “Do you Believe in Life after Love?” by Cher vibrating out of my boom box.
Having a little boogie and feeling good. Play the track - Feel Good Up Beat Mix on Spotify
Thoughts – “Geez Michelle you are so resilient I really love you. You seriously inspire me”
10 minutes ago POV
Having a “cacao break” (aka about to burst into tears after our team meeting and need to distract myself). Lying on my mat in front of my computer crying. Playing spiritual music and calling on the universe to support me in this tough time.
Thoughts “I need to teach businesswomen this shit. Everyone needs to do this in the middle of the work day – I feel like I am on a roller coaster today. Why am I crying so much today? Is it hormones or am I just having a bad day?”
20 minutes ago POV
Sitting at my desk, getting teary feeling very sorry for myself, and playing the victim.
Thoughts “Nothing is working, nobody loves me – I’m going to be by myself for the rest of my life”
2 hours ago POV
Feeling accomplished knowing that I got up at 4.30 (without an alarm) and did my complete morning routine (get kids organised, 20 minutes of Tony Robbins priming, 45-minute weights and cardio workout, 35-minute feminine movement class, walk the dog, drop the kids to school and deal with the insurance assessor after my kitchen recently flooded).
Thoughts “Go me I am smashing this shizzy outta the park. Mumma of the year. Yep rocking it even after a bad start”
5.5 hours ago POV
Finished my KunYin class (feminine movement). Cried through most of it but felt strong, powerful, and lighter. Released heaps of pent-up emotion from my body and realised I had lots of anger and resentment in there today.
Thoughts – “Not sure if I am happy or sad. Can’t quite work it out but I feel better”
7 hours ago my POV
Woke up feeling flat and teary.
Thoughts “Geez I look old today. I haven’t exercised for 3 days – think I’m losing my fitness. What is today going to bring me?”
OK this is just the summary…There was waaaaay more!!!!
Fellow soul sisters? Who resonates with this type of day? Give me a hell yeh!!
This is just ONE morning – imagine what the ups and downs would be in a week? My goodness
Have you ever stopped to think how many emotions you feel in a day?
Businesswomen you get a double whammy – Running a business is a TOUGH gig some days. The highs are freaking so good and well worth it but the lows can be full on. Mix this in with being a woman and I hope you have strapped yourself in!!
But how do we get through this roller coaster of emotions? Surely we don’t just have to shut our eyes and ride them whilst screaming shhhhiiiiitttt?
Well, you will be happy to know there is something we can do. It’s not going to get you off the roller coaster but it will minimise the effect the motion will have on you. We have some hands-on techniques that will move you through the roller coaster.
As you can see from my day, I have actually used some of these tools and it’s lunchtime and I am feeling so much better.
Have a listen to our recent (hilarious and informative) podcast where my sister and I discuss the tips for riding the roller coaster of emotions. A little hint – they all start with “SH” which is quite relevant. I love screaming that word out when barrelling down a roller coaster.
