Supports Life Appreciation

 
Living Is So Big can visit your school

Living Is So Big empowers, encourages, and inspires everyone to more actively appreciate life and everything that surrounds it. We are making a difference in today's children, teens, adults, and elders by reminding everyone that "if you have a heartbeat you have a purpose". Information on the Road Trip.


State of Missouri funding approved. We are pleased to announce that our organization has been approved financially, by the Missouri Department of Mental Health, for funding that will cover 100% of the cost for us to visit between 2-4 Missouri schools and do a presentation on Life Appreciation. We have spent the last 4 years traveling to schools around the country, giving presentations on why living, and life is so important. We focus on all the positive reasons to live. We have literally hundreds of letters from high school students, telling us how much of a positive impact our presentation made in their life. Please take a moment to review our brochure, and contact us with an questions you may have. This is a completely funded opportunity for your school to receive such an inspirational message.

Since 2010, Jesus (father), Iliana (mother) and Christopher (son) have been touring the United States to reach kids and adults with the desire to effect a positive change in their lives. To date, we have traveled over 80,000 miles and have visited 70+ cities. We have gone to many Cities, High Schools and Universities spreading the message of Life Appreciation via the cause "Living Is So Big."

Today, we are asking for your help on this 2014
"Living Is So Big - mission for the kids."

The mission of Living is So Big (LISB):
We've been asked by many kids, parents and teachers to travel to their location to help with issues in their schools. As great as this is, we have not been able to accommodate due to lack of funds from some schools. The Agudo family has created a Gofundme campaign to help assist the less fortunate schools that need assistance in getting us there.

LIVING IS SO BIG... Doors open and Close

Living Is So Big Anonymous writes "

I have struggled big and small for the past year, I was released out of the military in 2011 and I thought all would be well returning to civillian life but not. I was faced with a bad economy and no good paying jobs. I thought for sure I was going to fail at life.

I was down and out working at cinnabon in the Asheville mall when a nice couple breathed life into me with just 4 words "LIVING IS SO BIG" who would have thought that these 4 little words would change the way I see my life forever.

The wristband is still on my wrist and it never comes off and when I feel depressed I just look down and read those 4 little words and it makes me smile and changes my view instantly.

LETTER... I am an Aunt

Letters for LISB

Dear Jesus and Christopher

Thank you for coming to our class. My favorite part was when I read one of the Eight Living Realization cards called "Family." For me, family is the most important thing in my life.

One thing you don't know is that I am an Aunt. At first I really didn't like having a nephew because I am a jelouse girl. I thought that they would pay more attention to him, but they really haven't. They do a bit, but also pay attention to the both of us. I learned alot and when I got home I realized I have a blessing that is my nephew. <3 ...

Common sense is like breathing. By: Chris Agudo

Chris Agudo

Common sense is like breathing. The more you do it, the easier it gets. After all, it is a natural state of being and is habit due to the necessity of your lungs. Common sense is breathing, so when you must come down to a final decision, utilize common sense, it is easy........just like breathing. To go against common sense is equivalent to holding your breath... No body wants to suffocate. Just breathe.

Back in April of 2010. By: Iliana Agudo

Iliana Agudo

Back in April of 2010 my life has changed 100%. At that moment I knew I had to find the courage and strength to go forward and I found it within me, it was lying dormant within me.

When life gives us trials and tribulations in our darkest moments in our lives that is the time when we must know that we are strong to pass all of it with flying stars. Giving ourselves the motivation to keep moving no matter haht. Like my son Chris always says... "What doesn't kill you will make you stronger" What wisom from such a beautiful soul. That's why Living Is So Big to me.

Can you hear it? By: Iliana Agudo

Iliana Agudo

Can you hear it? Can you feel it? Listen and Be Still, then you will hear and feel it. It's those moments in life when we must stop what we are doing and just BE. We will get messages.

No matter what, it's important to do what you love. Investing your time and energy into a passion, desire, talent always makes the heart sing.

Living Life's Dream

Jesus Agudo

The Formula for Life's Dream: (T+E)*PCX=LiDr

Time plus Energy multiplied by Passion, Commitment, Execution equals Life's Dream

Follow the calculation of the formula and you too can achieve Life's Dream. It all begins with time. No matter how busy you may seem, time is always present. Do not dare say that you have "no time!" Saying it allows you to not achieve the Life's Dream. Also, be aware of the energy you use and wisely apply it with that precious moment called time. Time and Energy will be the beginning of any start.

After we make the time and energy available, Passion is a must! We need to acknowledge what we desire, what we want to have. The problem with passion is that most do not recognize it or realize that it is right there on their mind. It's the many thoughts of desire, of achieving and wanting something simple or great. It's the one thought that can make Life's Dream into a reality. Yet, many will think of other thoughts to do instead and miss out. Yes, the clutter and distraction has victory and your Life's Dream has been defeated.

However, If you do not allow clutter and distraction to deter you from achieving Life's Dream, it simply means that you have taken the next step. The next step of the formula called "Commitment." You have decided that this passion must be done and that it is part of what you want to accomplish. Yes, I will do this! I want this! It sounds fantastic. Doesn't it? Yet, this combination alone will not allow you to achieve Life's Dream. The final element of the formula is the most crucial. This will define the moment of who you are and what you want to accomplish.

The final piece of the formula is the following through, the Execution! Most will never complete this part. So close, yet never completed. Is it due to laziness, clutter, distraction or just not knowing how to? Whatever reason you can come up with, it will not change the fact that you fell short. You must act on the rest of the formula! You are allocating the "Time and Energy," thought of what you want or desire, "Passion!" You have the "Commitment" of getting it done and that you will do this. Then lastly, you do follow through and "Execute" on this to achieve your "Life's Dream" formula. Congratulations!!!!

Now, you may have been wondering what in the world is Life's Dream formula. I see the formula and understand its calculations. But what is it exactly?

The end result of the “Life’s Dream” is an uplifting and satisfying moment of accomplishment. It varies from some small thought or a grand thought. No matter what the thought may be, you accomplished it!!! Maybe it's a goal or even becoming successful in business. From this moment on, start living life's Dream.

LETTER... My own father

Letters for LISB

Dear Iliana, Jesus & Christopher

First of all, I would like to thank you for giving up some of your time to come to our class to talk about "Living Is So Big." I was in the 10th period class, which was at the end of the of day. Let me say that your presentation was the BEST! Your story really inspired me to do better in life. It also inspired me to help out my friends who need help the most.

The wristband I received, I gave it away to my own Father. He kept talking about how my Grandmother is sick, how he is constantly in pain and he didn't feel like living anymore. ...

I gave him my wristband and then had a long emotional talk with him about life and your presentation. He told me that because of me and my wristband, that he has a reason to live.

LETTER... Story of the past

Letters for LISB

Dear LISB Family,

I'm a girl that had a story of the past that I never wanted anyone to know.  Back in elementary school I used to be a nervous, unpopular, ugly and insecure girl that didn't have many friends.  Then, I met the most popular girl in elementary school that considered her my sister.   For me it was big because she actually wanted to be my best friend.

Soon, I went to middle school where my whole attitude changed because of my other friend.   This friend introduced me to a gang and cut-parties.  I joined the gang in the 7th grade. Imagine, a 7th grader in a gang full of violence.  Later on I became my friend's enemy.  She felt bigger and cooler than me, so I started realizing that she was only treating me as her pet.

After that moment, I lost my unpopular mode to a cool gang leader for middle school.  She and I fought twice and because of her I also lost my innocent shyness.  I now became a girl going to cut-parties and doing bad in school.  Little by little I became a girl who did not accept attitude from any one and I demanded respect!

My mom no longer trusted me, my dad was solid to me, my brothers bothered me and I did not have many friends because of my life style.  Something CHANGED! ...

I thank you for coming to our school and giving us all of the positive affirmations. Thank you for the wristbands and gratitude rocks. Every time I'm passing through a bad time I'm going to look at my wristband and make the rest of the day good.

Yesterday, I was passing through a bad time because I wanted to go somewhere and couldn't. But, I still tried to have a good time. I would have NEVER tried to make it better if you guys never gave me the wristband. I thank you guys because you never gave up! I hope you keep going and never quit. ...

LETTER.. Changed my life around

Letters for LISB

Dear Jesus and Christopher

Thank you for coming to our class the other day. You guys have changed my life around. I used to be depressed, stressed and unhappy every day. Ever since you guys came, you have inspired me. Just because I thought of you guys, I saved two of my close friends from killing themselves. It hurt a lot when they told me they wanted to end their lives. But, I stopped them from doing that. I am so glad. I feel like a brave teen. Although, I did have thoughts of ending my life as well. I starved myself and stayed in my room lying down. My heart felt abandoned, I was confused. But, I didn't have the right to be sad because LIVING IS SO BIG! That's the first thing that popped up in my mind.

What I love about you guys is that you motivate people. ...

Dear Jesus and Christopher

Thank you for coming to our class. I learned to value life and to always look for positive things in life. One week ago, me and my girlfriend had a fight. She has been my best friend. I was mad and said bad things. She became sad due to the bad things we argued about. We argued because of what her friends said about me.

We both were best friends for five months and now that we argued and faught because of her friends, it made me sad. I felt depressed and didn't want to do anything. I just wanted to sleep and hear music.

Then you and your son came and showed me that life has many values. That I have other people that care about me and want me to be with them. ...
