i'm always amazed by people that stay calm and level-headed no matter the situation. i am not one of those people! But i love how Helen Keller says "it is possible to create light and sound and order within us" no matter what is going on around us. Instead of "reacting" to situations and being acted upon, i'd love to be the sort of person that stays in control of my emotions. I think a lot of it has to do with putting our trust, hope and faith in God.
