It's all how we look at things really. Take for example, the word colorful. It can be used in many different ways and for lots of different reasons. If someone told me that I was colorful, I might take it as a compliment or I might take it as an insult. It boils down to our personal views.
With that being said, let's have some fun with a word that can be personally attached to an opinion or a feeling about something or someone that you know in your heart. Along the same lines as colorful, let's try the word alluring. What in your life as been alluring? Was it something good or bad. Did that alluring thing bring you grief or happiness? Maybe it brought you excitement. Can one word really do all that? YES!!!!
Write one sentence (or more) and include the word alluring. Feel free to take artistic license and stretch the truth a bit if you want!
