What matters? Many argue doing well in school, or progressing in your career is what matters. Some argue putting God first and always helping others is what matters. Others even argue being yourself and no one else is what matters. For Rocky Balboa, it was about if one could get up and keep going after one took the hit. For me, just having the strength to get out of bed is important. Simply living your everyday life is not easy. School, work, people, and etc can tear you apart. I believe it. I also believe when you are in this weak, dark moment, only you have the power to rise above. You can overcome any obstacle if you are truly willing to put in every effort. You have to do what you have never done to get what you never got. If it does not challenge you, it does not change you. Which is the most important? Ask yourself what matters. It is a magnifiicient question only you can answer for yourself.
