Thor's hammer

The most impactful scene for me from Avengers Endgame was when Captain America wielded up Thor's hammer.

The history behind Thor's hammer (for those of you that don't know) is that it can only be picked up by someone who is worthy of it.

I had always admired Captain America for his moral standing, his ability to always make the right choice no matter how hard it is and his bubbling optimism. His superpowers may be measly compared to the likes of Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and most other Avengers, but he still managed to shine through because of his mental attributes.

And those attributes were the reason he was deemed worthy of Thor's hammer.

Ever since I watched that scene, Thor's hammer has taken on a metaphorical meaning for me. Whenever I look at it, I'm reminded that I ought to act according to my principles and to aim for attaining the level of mental attributes like Captain America. I'm reminded that I ought to behave in a way that is worthy of Thor's hammer.

Sometimes, doing the right thing is the hardest thing to do. And that's the reason I like superheroes, and Captain America in particular.

Having such simple reminders make it easier to make the right choices. My north star is to be worthy of Thor's hammer.
