Whew.

I’ve definitely never been to Burning Man, nor am I determined to ever go (not completely ruling it out), but I really liked this Elephant Journal article 5 Ways to Maximize Personal Growth at Burning Man (or Anywhere) by Troy Dayton and Steve Bearman.   It has several gems but here are a few choice quotes,

“You did not used to be nearly as awesome you are now. Think back to a time before you had grown and developed into your current form. When you do this, we imagine you feel a good deal of relief.”

And my favorite

“Authenticity does not imply consistency, so go ahead and contradict yourself”

Somehow both of these words of wisdom bring me great relief. 🙂
