I use these words to describe my friend Alycia:
Why? Because she IS all these things. She’s a business woman and a public speaker. She’s a singer and a songwriter. She’s a mother, a wife, and a homeschooler. She’s someone I and a lot of other people look up to.
So, tell me, what kind of picture of Alycia do these words paint in your mind? What would you expect her to look like, to sound like, to act like?
Take a second to really think about this.
Now, think some more.
Here’s another word that some people use to describe her:
Why? Because Alycia has Bipolar Disorder.
Now, what does your mind’s eye see? What’s your picture of her?
If I saw your picture, would I use these words to describe it?...
What does it take for you to say “I know all there is to know about them.”? A word? A label? One non-typical encounter?
Be careful that you don’t paint someone’s portrait using just one of the colors on your pallet, especially if that color’s tainted.
