Happy New Years!

So what does "resisting" happiness really mean?

January 1st and I'm snuggled up by the fireplace, cracking open Chapter 1 of Resisting Happiness.

"The alarm clock goes off. It's time to get out of bed. This is your first decision of the day. Will you get out of bed or hit the snooze button? You press the snooze button and roll over."

Author Matthew Kelly procedes to explain how this is the first example of resistance in a person's typical day.

"What is resistance? It's that sluggish feeling of not wanting to do something that you know is good for you, it's the inclinatoin to do something that you unabashedly know is not good for you, and it's everything in between. It's the desire and tendency to delay something you should be doing right now."

Resistance stands between you and happiness.

I hope you enjoy taking a few minutes each day to be inspired by Resisting Happiness.

Thanks so much to Mary, Mother of the Church for this Christmas gift. I have been really enjoying it, and have already had requests for more copies from friends and family. I look forward to the Lent small group studies on this book.

Thank you Marie for your feedback. I'm happy to hear others are interested in the book as well. Do pass along to others, or you can obtain an extra copy from the Church, while supplies last.
