A Series of Journeys

The next blog posts Absorbed, Connecting, Presence, Warmth, Vulnerability, and The Journey will be a series of experiential insights about the voyage I am on…to be…here.

I have found that it is extremely difficult to uproot fear-based habits such as staying away from the present, trying to embody a stoic and stereotypical male, and forming disguises so no one can see who I am inside.

I have found that replacing these…to build the skills necessary to connect…with presence, warmth, and vulnerability…will be a series of journeys that may never have a destination…a close…an end. And, that is okay. As long as it is more…and more…than before.

I have drastically needed this open and loving space within myself. And, I have been missing out on so many beautiful connections with others for many, many years.

Chill Hop – Pause:

One of my favorite chill hop albums and each of my favorite songs from it will flow below each post this week. Enjoy 🙂

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.
