This Girl Can

This Girl Can

For all who said no,
You can’t, won’t, don’t,
It’s not possible,
You never will,
It’s in your head,
You’re not capable,
It’s just a whim,
You’ll give up, give out, give in.

For all those who stopped me before I started,
For those who stopped me dreaming,
Who made me content with just OK,
Who made comfortable too comfortable.

I’m saying yes,
I’m hearing yes
And I am trying,
I’ll fall, I’ll fail
And I’ll try again,
I’m ready to dream again
And make those dreams come true,
Or at least I’ll say yes
And try

And to those of you who said I can’t
Be assured
This girl can

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.
