Even the shy among us enjoy feeling appreciated - important - may even relish a mere 15 minutes of fame.
But, I wonder if we've confused that innate desire? "Being important" as opposed to "Doing important things".
Were you to be cast in a reality television show, you may feel important. If the show were to be successful, you may in fact "be" important.
And all without doing anything of real importance.
This short-term celebrity might satiate our innate desire of importance, but wrongly so.
Your desire for importance is a good thing. But the desire is meant to provoke us into becoming an agent of restoration. Not mere celebrity.
