FRIENDS………………………………………………………..

theutopiauniverse

When we think of friends what is the first thing that come’s into your mind ? Is it the person that you have known all your life,the person you met a few years ago,but has a special bond, the person that understands you better than anyone else or maybe the person who is always there for you no matter what…..

Friendship is something that is found between two people, it is not always something that has to be worked at, it is a magical thing that bond’s those people together, no matter what, through single days,between marriage,break ups,children, death’s and births, up and down everyday problems and at times some pretty serious obstacles that life just love’s popping in there. This could be an illness,financial disaster a total of the rails experience, and if that special person your friend is still there through all of what it may be, you…

Remember in September Post #29 – God Saves From Suicide

My Loud Whispers of Hope

How God Saves From Suicide

God saved my life. God saves and heals.

I am living proof of that. ~Susan Walz

Please don’t give up. Suicidal thoughts can end. There is hope. Recovery is possible and it happens. I am living proof of that.

The next video is another beautiful testimony about how God saves people’s lives. The christian rapper/hip hop artist, Sevin, is another example of that.

On the following video Sevin says:

I always had suicidal thoughts as a kid… I fell into an abyss and started self medicating. Anything to numb myself.

I walked into my room and put my gun to my head. In the moment I had the gun to my head, the holy spirit fell on me. I felt an overwhelming peace and acceptance. It literally went through my body and it changed me.

God came off the pages and jumped into my real life…

A Big Announcement Coming In 2018

DreamBig 2018

I have something I will be talking about in 2018 that is incredibly personal; probably more personal than any topic I’ve ever discussed on my page.  It relates to something that has revealed itself in my therapy and I’m not even sure how I’m going to tackle it.  I know it is a big deal for me based solely on the fact that I have found myself reluctant to even discuss it at all and, based on the fact that I talk more openly on Dream Big than anywhere else in my life,  I have major reservations.

I have cried more this past week than I have over any one thing.  It has rocked me to my core and has created a lot of uncertainty in my spirit and mind; honestly I feel myself going into a bit of depression.  The only reason I don’t start writing about it now is I don’t think I am through the “processing” aspect of the realization.  In time I’ll begin writing about it and I can see Dream Big taking a slight turn in focus for quite some time.

For now I’m going to leave it alone, I simply wanted to let everyone know what is going on and what is in store for the future.  I hope all of you have a great New Year and a productive beginning to 2018!!

Your friend,

Danny

For a while now, I’ve been partners with Danny.

Like a lot of you, I follow his blog for a daily dose of inspiration and thought provoking interaction. No wonder why he came to my mind, when I spotted this mug while waiting to pay at Winners.

And like Danny, it was the unique one! 🙂

2 Year Blogiversary-THANK YOU!!

dream-big2

I have been so preoccupied with Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Christmas season here in the Ray household that I completely forgot today is Dream Big’s 2-year blogiversary!  It seems like only yesterday I was introducing myself to the WordPress world and beginning this journey.  I want to say ‘Thank you’ to all of you who read, critique, LIKE and follow my page; without you our community would not be what it is.

I have some new graphics coming soon along with some new weekly post ideas to refresh the page so be sure to BOLO.

With that said, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Spend some time with your loved ones and/or friends and be safe.

From my heart,

Danny
