Editors Monthly “Share”
insidewink co-founders, Jean Trebek & Alison Martin, sharing thoughts on the world around us and some questions you might ask to keep your integrity.
We begin our letter to you with a little trivia tidbit— the month of August (named after Augustus Ceasar) means “inspiring reverence or admiration.”
That’s perfect because our theme this month is integrity. Integrity has such a layered meaning—as it means something different to each one of us.
Here are some questions that came up for us when we started discussing integrity…
- Can you be honest with your feelings through these trying times?
- Can you allow others space to truly be themselves?
- Can you hold firm to your own convictions and ideals?
- Can you let go of how you think things should be?
- Can you embrace the present just as it is?
Our admiration goes out to those who are moving with integrity through these unprecedented times.
Looking ahead, here’s what’s coming up…
Our everyday hero came to us through an email from her sister… her name is Tricia Patterson and she is an unbelievable force for good!
You can write to us too! We love sharing stories of inspirational people. Learn more about getting in touch with us here.
We feature the wonderful photography of Carl Studna as our artist this month.
The Ir David Foundation is our charity this month and they committed to uncovering and sharing Jerusalem’s long and storied past. Be sure to look for the article to learn more about them in mid-August.
We’ll talk again soon!
