One of my goals this year is to read the list of books are in my possession.
Resisting Happiness by Matthew Kelly is next on the list.
Follow along as I include my thoughts about the exercises in this book. The chapters are short but provides a deep questioning of happiness.
Chapter one, when have I resisted happiness in the week?
Chapter 2, what is my score of happiness for the past 3 months? I would say it’s a 5.
And what are the three activities that increase my happiness? Those are art/stitching, being with my pets, walking/yoga.
To quote from the book, page 2, “make no mistake, resistance is your enemy. It will not quietly go away and leave you alone. You have to slay it like a dragon, and you have to slay it anew each day.”
Resisting Happiness is definitely something I will be more aware about. Never thought about how resistance is sabotaging my happiness.
