The Wise Women

The Wise Women

We are the wise women,
We know more than we think,
Perceive more than realise,
Are capable of more than we expect,

We are the wise women,
We can change the world
If we support each other,
Encourage each other,
Allow ourselves to be used as stepping stones,
Provide a foothold for other wise women
Or reach out a helping hand,

We are the wise women,
We set the world to rights,
No more content with just “pretty”,
No more content with comfortable,
No more comfortable with content,

We are the wise women
And we feel no need to trample,
To dumb down other women
Who are wise in their own way,
Or have the potential
To join us in our wisdom,

We are the wise women
And there is always room for more,
No-one needs replacing,
Join us on our platform,
The platform is broad and plentiful,
There’s always room for more,
More inspiration, more motivation, more ideas,
When we work together our platform grows
For more of the wise women to climb
And find their place alongside

We are the wise women,
Together we can work quietly,
Build, create, progress, sustain

We are the wise women,
We don’t need to shout and scream,
We don’t need to fight,
We don’t need to smash the glass ceiling,
We just need to turn the world upside down

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.
