While sitting at the beach today, I noticed that the sand appears to be a caramel color. It's a bit deceptive though because when I looked closely at the sand on my feet, I noticed that the sand is comprised of no less than five different shades.
I think we are a lot like the sand. From a distance we can have one appearance, but when we allow someone to get up close and really know us, they can see all the nuances of color that make us unique. The problem is sometimes we are uncomfortable with people seeing certain shades of our personality.
