Diamond dreamsLooks can be very deceiving.  We have all been taught not to judge a book by its cover but with some things, you go according to first impressions without looking deeper into it.  First impression are supposed to be the window on which you determine how you are going to approach someone or something but as we all know, that is just not the case.  Sometimes you have to take a step back and see things from a different perspective in order to get the TRUE feel of what is really going on.
