Character in Chaos

If you seek inner peace, go the malls at the holidays or the World Cup final. Do not seek it in solitude. It’s easy to be peaceful in peaceful settings. Just as it’s easy to be in a good mood when things are going well. However, if you are able to be in control of your thoughts and emotions amid chaotic energy, and can do so regularly without giving in to the energy you’re surrounded by, you have achieved something special for yourself. Character is measured in how we handle chaos.
