Sigh No More

Sign No More

I don’t think to understand – because of habit.

I react to my feelings – because of trained reaction.

So, when feeling good, or distracted from the pain, I can think so positively and I love being me.
And, when I’m feeling bad, I can think so negatively and hate being trapped in my mind, my shoes.

Regardless, letting my feelings take the reign of my thoughts without any organization or exploration into perspective and reason is an obsessive consequence with cyclical, never growing experiences and a childish, dependent mind.

Everyday, I need to practice thinking towards understanding no matter how I feel…for the purpose of wanting to love myself for how I act no matter how I feel…and for the greater purpose of (at every corner and moment of life) learning something deeper to refresh my mind and become loving and wise with the layers of information and insight I build from the journey.

That’s the life I want to live.
And the one I need to live if I want to relax my mind, satisfy all the potential I have as a human being, and live everyday towards death with peace of mind and open eyes.

And then, I will love.
Me.
You.
And life.
As they all are.
With a deep, calm breath.

Because “love it will not betray you, dismay, or enslave you…it will set you free…be more like the man you were made to be.”

About Kevin Carlstead

I graduated as a hospitality and psychology student at University of Denver. I spent most of my teenage and young adult years in the hospitality industry. I am still searching for what industry suits my personality and talents so that I can feel more meaning throughout my days. My current career pursuit has me enrolled in a graduate program to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I was born and raised in San Diego, CA. I love music with something to it. I love life with something to it. I have made it one of my purposes in this life to integrate both of these things that I love. This blog and my own songwriting has given me the platforms to do that very thing. Thank you for reading.
