Truth Jean Trebek Alison Martin

insidewink co-founders, Jean Trebek & Alison Martin, talk TRUTH…

 Hello friends,

As summer starts to wind down, we talk about truth.  Some very interesting things came up for us:

The Truth of The Matter is Truth Matters

As individuals, being truthful allows us to learn from our mistakes and thereby mature and evolve into a person that lives and acts in alignment with our own personal values. The truth sheds lights and opens a space for awareness.

If you’re pretending not to be yourself, your life will feel very conflicted and a sense of inner authority and true joy will be challenging to achieve. The act of telling the truth is liberating…speaking truth is the language of your soul, so never underestimate the power of being honest about yourself to yourself, and to others.

“Differing Truths”

Today we are faced with the oxymoron of what appears to be “differing truths”… how can that be? When the truth is – that the truth IS. We all hold dear some common truths and human goals. We all deserve and have the ability to share kindness, we have the right to happiness and liberty (thank you founding fathers)… the sticky part is HOW we get to these goals. THAT’S what differs, THAT’S the stressor.

If we boil down a question, a situation, a conflict, to the truth – to what we have in common – we can create a path to figure out how to best achieve the goal. There is a world where differing views and opinions can live side by side with the truth. A world where compromise is seen as strength, where seeing the best in others is the norm, where candor is also compassionate. 

Let’s stand up for the Truth. Let’s understand the difference between Truth and Opinion. Let’s be brave and rejoice in Sincerity.

Here’s what’s happening on insidewink…
