Day 275: Why Wait

When you can jump right in and do it and complete it yourself. Often times we find ourselves waiting for others to help us do things and/or waiting for others to do their part of a mutual project that may or may not have a deadline connected to it, but mostly a lot of projects... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 274; Right and Wrong

Why is it that when we know what’s right, we still choose to do wrong? In whose eyes have we given the decision to make but our own? We put stipulations on everything from religion to friendship and on love in light of everything that we deal with. We put ourselves through t... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 273: Routes

In the city, you have streets, ally’s, highways, byways, river, streams, as route that leads to someplace or another and oddly enough, all of these routes in some way or another also leads to the same place, for example, here in California, everything leads to the ocean, at so... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 272: What Makes You, You

Is it the clothes you wear, that makes you you? Is it the car you drive, that makes you you? Is it the job you have, that makes you you? Do the type of job you have, makes you you? How about the title you give yourself, is that really you? Are you really the name you nick your... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 271: STOP, You’re Not There, You’re HERE

Is a phrase I often use throughout my day when I find myself time traveling in my mind, now with this type of time travelling, it cost you nothing monetarily, you don’t need to reserve a ticket or even plan a trip, I mean if you did, then you probably wouldn’t be in your mind ... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 270: The Man in the Mirror

In 1988 Michael Jackson released a song called Man in the Mirror which was written by Glen Ballard and Siedah Garrett.

Day 269: Material Possessions

Before I started my process, I had an extensive recording studio, where during that period of time, I would go shopping almost every week to get the newest piece of equipment, outboard gear, compressor, software etc. I mean if you were to walk into my studio when the lights we... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 268: A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste (REALLY)

If a mind is a terrible thing to waste, then why do we deal with it, in rape, murder and war, we rob and steal with it, then turn around and blame somebody else that did it, instead of taking responsibility for it, we live with it, as if all of a sudden the mind will clean up ... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 267: Stop Expecting To Get Your Way

This day and age, being nice doesn’t get you anywhere, but that doesn’t mean that you need to be mean and that‘ll get you some place, nope it doesn’t work that way. I mean if you look at it, nine (9) times out of ten (10), ask yourself what’s your starting point for being nice... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 266: Enjoyment

What does it take for you to enjoy yourself, when you are out with friends and/or family? What does it take for you to open up and express yourself? What does it take for you to mingle with people you don’t know? What is it that we have created as the universal connector of al... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 265: Broken Promises (Time)

When you think you have time, but you don’t really have time and you assumed that time was on your side when you’ve made a promise to someone that, you’ll do and/or be somewhere at a certain time, why is it then, that time becomes the scapegoat, when in fact all the why’ll you... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 264: You’ve Got Passengers

Back in the late 70’s and then the 80’s there was this television show on TV called the Love Boat and during the show, they would show how the boat would pick up passengers and take them on a cruise to different places around the world and during the cruise/time out at sea, a ... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 263: Excommunicate a family Member

Growing up I’ve always heard about the rich kid that has been excommunicated from their family because of them not wanting to follow the family traditions or because they rebelled against their parents, turning out to be the black sheep of the family. Within this, the family c... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 262: The Mind Map

Do you really know where you are, where you’re going, where you come from and how you got to where you are, within your world and reality, in this Physical Existence?

Day 261: Are You Really Aware of What You Do

Are you really aware of what you do? Are you aware of the ant/cricket or bug that’s walking around your shoe? When you see it, does it startle you or do you mind them being next to you? When you’re sweeping your floor are you aware of where and what you are sweeping up? If you... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 260: In Between a Rock and a Hard place

In between a rock and a hard place is an island where you sit, wondering what should you do, if or if not you should say something and thinking about possible outcomes, one way or the others, if or if not you do say something, about the information you just came across from so... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 259: Ready Set Go

At the beginning of a long race (a marathon), we come out the blocks with hast and our idea is to get from point A to point B at a consistent and steady pace, in order to finish the race, but as we are running, we start to become a bit tired because of thinking how much furthe... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 258: Before You Go

I’m sure we all have experienced as a child our parents telling us, before you go outside and play you have to do this, that or the other and if you don’t finish this, this that or the other, you won’t be able to go outside and play, so what do we do; First off we momentarily ... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 257: What I Will or Will Not Accept and Allow

What I will accept and allow from myself is what’s best for all. What I will not accept and allow from myself is to continue to fall.

Day 255: Baby Shower

The game we play before the baby arrives is what I experienced, when recently I was invited by a family member to a coed baby shower.

Day 254: When Things Are Not Said

When things are not said, it leaves the mind to wonder, this is also where assumptions set in and miscommunication is the outcome. We use miscommunication as an excuse to try and calm the arising situation and/or to get over the point that wasn’t effectively communicated and n... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 253: YOU ARE WORTH A MINT

One thing I found in my investigations into churches and religions, (being that that’s how I was raised) is that, we somehow believe that the church cares about us and is looking out for our best interest, when in fact that’s not exactly the true of the matter. We put all our ... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 252: “Please don’t let them talk to me”.

Day 251: Stereotyping

What have we in this world come to, where the color of our skin, race, creed, gender is what we have classified as being different toward each other, with different unique qualities, labels, ways in which one group define the other by type, under the per-conceived notion that ... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 250: My Relationship with Breath

Yes we breathe, but at times do not realize our breath, meaning we consume ourselves with any and everything outside of ourselves and forget that we are breathing. This then causes Shortness of Breath, Hyperventilation, Dizziness, Fainting Spells, Forgetfulness, Dozing off and... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 249: Pastime

How do you spend your pastime? Have you taken into account how your life is spent? Most of us are only certain about two (2) things, that is death and taxes, everything else (we think) is wrapped around survival. Or is it? Let’s have a look; As of 2014 the life expectancy in A... —carltontedford.wordpress.com

Day 248: Clique

Cliques are; groups within group that are for the group as a whole, but associate with certain members more than anyone else within the group, because of similar self-interest.

Imagine for a moment, where would you be, and what would you have done up until this point in your life without Self-Forgiveness. I have and it’s not pretty picture.

Day 246: Think Twice Before You . . .

As if the first time wasn’t enough. Have you ever heard this saying; “Think twice before you” and so on and so forth?
