Happiness is your Responsibility

You don’t want to be happy until you get the man of your dreams
You don’t want to be happy until he pops the question
You don’t want to be happy till the ring is on your finger
You don’t want to be happy until the baby comes
You don’t want to be happy until his Mother is dead
You don’t want to be happy until he can pay for vacation 4 times a year

You don’t want to be happy if he can’t afford a house in Lekki
You don’t want to be happy if he can’t afford a fancy school for Junior
You don’t want to be happy if he doesn’t do like Jones’

You don’t want to be happy, because you don’t want to be happy

After you get all the things you think will make you happy
You will find yourself
To be one of those clueless, brainless, empty people who are not happy!

Dig deep Girl, Happiness is inside of you
It may be that all your adult life you’ve felt that
Happiness comes from things
It doesn’t, Happiness comes from inside of you
True Happiness does!
You have so many reasons to be happy
So, start by getting up in the morning with a smile
Trick your brain
Dig inside
Think happy thoughts Count as many blessings as you can

Hold it!
I hear you, shitty marriage
Shitty job
Shitty day
Okay Vent, bitch and then resume being Happy!
Stay Happy!
It’s your job to be!

I envision Hilda’s Shoulder to be a relationship park-a place you go to learn, vent and share. I have another understanding of the word relationship -I don’t think it is for people dating only. A marriage is a relationship too, and one which needs great rela- tions in the SHIP called home!
Hilda’s Shoulder is a place where we virtually hold hands like - real friends should. If you want to come anonymously...we understand ..still come! Hilda’s shoulder is here for you!
