I'll have a recap later on in the week about the whole dress shopping experience for my bridesmaids (read: sister and future SIL) along with the glamorous pictures that are great for
Today though, I want to focus on the aspect of "true colors."
Now don't wince and automatically assume I'm bringing something negative to the table. True colors can be beautiful or ugly; pretty or dark; nice or mean. True colors can be the simple surprise of a good deed that somebody does for you, when you least expect it. True colors can be the hurtful words imposed on you and your beliefs, when you least expect it.
See the common theme there? When you least expect it?
I'm always so grateful when a person's true colors come out, whether they're good or bad. I love discovering somebody's ulterior motives because that always speaks volumes to me. Even if it's something that hurts me, in the end, I'll know what they were thinking. Or feeling. Or their ulterior motives.
My bit of advice for all you lovelies out there because I've had my fair share of true colors revealed to me throughout my life, especially in the last 2 years:
That was so hard for me to figure out at first. But as I began to realize, it's important for me to embrace their true colors because that's part of who they are. Whether I agree with it, is up to me. But I can embrace and be respectful of one's true colors.
So today, join me in being grateful for everybody's true colors. You may be amazed at what you'll discover!
