imageGlitz and glam; the two go together. Hypnotically, your eyes follow the glitter. The sight is so captivating; it’s mesmerizing; it can take your breath away. Keep looking and you might find that what you are viewing is misleading. Everything that looks precious may not be. That conclusion extends to people, places, and things. Once you get to the core, and peel away the exterior, the real deal pops up. The “inside” is very telling! Similar to peeling back an onion, hopefully tears don’t fill your eyes when the reality of the view does not glisten. Perceptions versus reality may become a game changer. Life’s experiences will show you that all that glitters is not gold! Some find out the hard way. Nothing is worse than discovering what you thought you had was a façade. It is not your eyes playing tricks on you. It’s the truth raising its head. How shocking is the appearance when the glittery shine is gone. The dullness is not glaring; that’s for sure! Worse yet, the pot of glittery gold that you thought was yours belonged to someone else! What an empty and “broke” feeling!
