Welcome to the Official Julie Silver Website
Hi everybody and thanks for stopping by.
Last summer I pulled a fortune out of a fortune cookie that read “Write it on your heart that it’s the best day of your life”.Â Last night, I dreamed about that sentence.Â How do we make these days the best days of our lives without ignoring the pain and suffering we and those around us endure every single day?Â Not sure I have an answer to this question, but it might be that being present in every moment, even the most difficult ones, can in some way be rewarding.Â Doesn’t it feel good to help others? To visit the sick? To bring a plate of cookies to a neighbor? To make sure the homeless in your community know that you care? To collect clothing for a shelter?Â To bring healing by your actions as opposed to sitting in non-action, complaining that the world is going down the drain?
Do one thing today that makes you feel good and make sure it’s for another person–and make sure you let your kids know you did it. Bring a granola bar or two with you on your travels every day, and offer it to someone who needs it more than you. After all, if you’re sitting upright, reading this at a computer, you have more than most. Maybe giving a few things away might make this very day the best day of your life.
