Not Lonely

Static in the centre

As the noise and the movement whirls around

And the gin swirls around in my glass and in my head

A strange sensation

No-one dependent

No-one to depend on

Truly independent

Surrounded by groups

And couples

And chatter

And busy-ness

But here, in the centre

Just me



But not lonely

Published by Finding Felicity

I am Felicity, a satisfaction expert, yoga teacher and reflexologist who is empowering disillusioned people to take ownership of their happiness, having learnt from my own experience of falling off the hedonic treadmill that happiness is far deeper than just pleasure. My personal journey of deconstructing and reconstructing my life through studies of neuroscience, psychology, philosophy and yoga, opened my eyes to the complexity of human emotions. Based in Lancashire and teaching online, I am passionate about passing that knowledge on to others who feel out of touch with themselves and are wondering, “is this it?” I'm obsessed with helping people to build and live a satisfied life we don’t need to escape from.
