Living Is So Beard Challenge

Living Is So Big April_A writes "

Maybe you’ve heard the story of Jesus Agudo and his son, Christopher. Christopher came to a point in his life where he had become very depressed, and decided to call it quits as he actually attempted to end his very life. Just 17 at the time, the first attempt to end his life failed, as he states, because the knot of his self-made noose unraveled, but yet he still planned on a second attempt. When that day came on April 10, 2010 that Jesus the father and his wife, Iliana received the text saying that their son was going to end it all, it broke Jesus as a father. “I never felt so much pain in my life,” Jesus recalls.

Four days later, a doctor pointed her index finger at Jesus and stated, “You need to surround your son with reasons to live for.” That's all that he heard from her at that moment, Jesus said. “‘Living Is So Big' was born right there and then in my mind.” It was an epiphany inspired by love and desperation to help his son. Jesus registered and then created a living is so big website ( asking family, friends and strangers to post their priceless reasons why they choose to live their life.

At that point in his life, the 4-word phrase (Living Is So Big) helped turned Chris' mindset around from a dark moment to a bright moment in his life. That led Jesus and Chris to embark on a father and son campaign to spread the power of life appreciation.

Now, at this point in their lives, Jesus and Chris continue to speak at high schools, universities and businesses across the United States.

What’s next? Jesus and Christopher have been challenged by John Armstrong to grow their beards to honor the bearded ones across the globe. John is the president of the organization called “Beard Team Kansas” of which has raised funds in the past for Living Is So Big, to have them reach the schools and speak to the kids around the nation. ...

LIVING IS SO BIG... Doors open and Close

Living Is So Big

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.

Back in April of 2010. By: Iliana Agudo

Living Is So Big

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.

LIVING IS SO BIG... because

Living Is So Big Anonymous writes "

We never really know what impact we have on the lives of others, especially with what we say and do or by not doing or saying anything. Sometimes being a good friend means listening without judgment. Other times it means speaking up when we notice something is not quite right. If we choose to treat others with kindness and compassion we will attract people who are also kind and compassionate. Most people just need to know that there is someone else who cares... about them. LISB!

I'm not a reflection... by Iliana Agudo

Living Is So Big

I'm not a reflection of my clothes, shoes, hair, makeup, weight... These things do not declare who I am. They do not determine who I am. I'm just occupying my body for the mean time while I'm here on earth. My soul is what truly counts! My essence of who I am. My creativity of my soul to express who I am. It's about looking beyond the physical body and going deep into the soul, heart. When I look into someone's eyes I look at their essence of who they are. Never judge anyone by their appearance they are much more then what the eye sees. ♥ ....

Are you at peace? ... By Iliana Agudo

Living Is So Big

Are you at peace? What I'm talking about is being at peace with ourselves. How do we get there? I picture it by getting to a place where I feel at one with myself.  When I'm feeling troubled and my mind doesn't shut down, I start to paint. Somehow, no matter how I'm feeling, if I pick up a paint brush it eases my mind. It makes me feel tranquil straight down to my soul. I also enjoy the sound of the water. We have a little water fountain in the house which at times, I will turn on to feel at peace. The sound of the water trickling, it puts me in a state of mind that just soothes my mind, body and soul.

I can picture myself walking on the sand in a beach, looking up at the sky and seeing the seagulls flying by. I can feel the warm sand between my toes, while feeling the sun grazing my cheek. Now I bet you think I must be at the beach in order to feel this way? No, not at all. We can just go to this place or any other that gives us peace of mind, body and spirit just by closing our eyes and letting our mind go to these places... Let your sensory take over. ...

Note: Love and blessings.

LIVING IS SO BIG... Healing Process

Living Is So Big meganlaughs writes "

On May 11, 2012, I climbed upon the stairs upstairs to his room to try to bring him down to come hang out with us. But he didn't want to go. I knew something was wrong, but he didn't want to talk about it. I said I would see him later. And off I went for the night with some friends to go to the canyon.

The next day on May 12, 2012 I received a call at 8 AM that morning and letting me know he committed suicide. My world was shattered and I didn't know how to put it back together. I broke down and cried. I let my roommate hold me in her arms as she tried to comfort in the unspeakable pain I was feeling. Tears ran down my face as I've never felt them before.

I was shocked, hurt, and mad. Most of all, I instantly missed him.

I never experienced someone close to me committing suicide - I didn't even know anyone who had suffered with such depression before. Or maybe I never realized the reality of it. I didn't know how to deal with the pain I was feeling. I didn't know how to express myself. I started to separate myself from some of my friends and I cried a lot. It hurt so much to cry - I literally felt pain in my body as I cried...

LIVING IS SO BIG... The Side No one Knows

Living Is So Big Anonymous writes "

Well....I just want to start this story by introducing myself.

My name is Liann and I am 15. I had a hard life. I was taken from my mom at 3 years old, and lived with my grandmother. My dad was out of the picture. When i was 6, I was taken from my gramma, because i was being abused both physically and sexually. They placed me in a foster family, and they adopted me 3 years later. I loved them and trusted them, which at that point in my life, was really hard to do.

Over the years, my adopted family got abusive. I was taken from there when i was 14 years old. Now at this point, I didn't trust anyone, and my behavior was awful. I used to cut myself...and it would help. Then, as things went downhill...i would hold knives up to my heart, and think constantly about killing myself. I would cry a lot when no one was looking, and I tried to get close to God, but it seemed like nothing worked....

LIVING IS SO BIG... Awakened By Iliana Agudo

Living Is So Big

As I've become more awakened I've noticed things in a whole new light.  It's as if I'm looking at life through a new set of eyes.  It's amazing how life has a new meaning to me.  My compassion has risen to new heights,  as if I can feel what others are feeling.

I know that we are connected more then ever.  In order for humanity to survive this stage of awareness this has to be born in all of us.  I'm amazed how intricate we are in so many levels.  We are so powerful that just to think of everything we are capable of doing just boggles my mind.
