"Sometimes Peace Passes All Understanding"

There are days when The Daily Prism skips all about the internet, newspapers and magazines searching for the good that people perform--the kind of positive action that probably won't make the nightly news broadcasts.  

Millions of blogs are posted daily. Blogs with positive messages are a joy to find.  Our favorites are the positive blogs crafted by you and me and everyday Jane and Joe.  Those are the real voices of humanity. 

According to a Psychology Today post,  "Fear-provoking words—like poverty, illness, and death—also stimulate the brain in negative ways.  And even if these fearful thoughts are not real, other parts of your brain (like the thalamus and amygdala) react to negative fantasies as though they were actual threats occurring in the outside world."

But, the post continues, "Positive words and thoughts propel the motivational centers of the brain into action and they help us build resiliance when we are faced with life’s problems. According to Sonja Lyubomirsky, one of the world’s leading researchers on happiness, if you want to develop lifelong satisfaction, you should regularly engage in positive thinking about yourself, share your happiest events with others, and savor every positive experience in your life."

With that in mind, I found through other writers, an uplifting blog, The Essence of Family, and this inspiring post, Sometimes Peace Passes All Understanding.  Check it out.
