Keep calm and carry on

Have you seen this all over the blogoshphere? According to Wikipedia, it was a poster produced by the British government in 1939 at the beginning of WWII, designed to raise public morale in the event of invasion. Apparently it was unknown and little used. It was rediscovered in 2000, and has been “on fire” ever since.

I find its sentiment appealing and the instruction worthy but impossible to follow. My usual reaction is to have an emotionally-charged reaction, and to begin to fret and stew – kind of the direct opposite of keeping calm and carrying on. 

How about you? Are you able to “keep calm”? If so, how?!? And are you able to “carry on”? What are your secrets?

Or, do you just happen to like the poster? 🙂
