“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
Here is an overview of our project on Living A Larger Life. This post provides links to pertinent aspects of this project for those of you who are interested in exploring it.
If you are curious about what inspired me to do this particular project, you can read this post. If you are curious about the results that we experienced, you can read our feedback and various thoughts at Wrapping Things Up. If you'd like to give it a try, a good place to start is with the Four Questions.
This project also spawned a mini-project, The Hero's Journey, and you can find those links and wrap-up on this post: Project Overview - Hero's Journey.
If you like the idea of living your life as if it was an epic fantasy movie, and want to see how it might work for you, you can start on Day One - If your life was an epic fantasy movie and then continue on through reading and working with each post in order. Or, you can explore the individual posts at random. How you work the project is up to you. There is a complete listing of the day by day links at the bottom of this post.
This is an active blog, and if you post, we will notice and reply.. and give you the benefit of our own experience and our support if it seems pertinent or appropriate. Feel free to post your thoughts, ideas, results, joys and disappointments as you go. Even though we love you, comment spam is deleted when discovered, and we've had so much of it lately that I enabled comment verification. Anonymous posting is discouraged, however, if you have problems with the comment box, feel free to use that option.
We do have a recommended reading list if you are interested in expanding your understanding. I don't know how up to date it is, but there are a lot of really good books listed. Feel free to add titles and authors that you would recommend. We do have quite a collection of quotes, and if you want to, you can visit Way Cool Quotes and find a bunch more.
