Popularity. Fame. Everybody wants it, maybe not everybody. What does it mean to be popular?

Well, you get a lot of attention. So much so that one day, you start noticing that everything you do has certain intentions that aren't for yourself. You start doing things for others, to impress others, to make yourself look good, and someday you're in so deep you can't withdraw yourself.

And why isn't it good? Well.. 'Cause you lose yourself. Yes, you may get all the attention you want, but to the extent of losing your own purpose of doing things, of obtaining happiness by losing a lot, of sacrificing so much.

Luke 9:25
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed?

Yeah that's it. Meaningful ain't it! Look at the world, there are people who are willing to do anything for fame. Maybe body? Selling your soul to the Devil? What's the point of getting all these materialized stuff, when you lose yourself, your being, your worth?

So guys, let's do ourselves a favour. Live life to the fullest, for God, for love, for ourselves, and the people worth living for.
