Easy does it! and Work hard but don’t make hard work of it, are two sayings to live by. Consider, has worry or being so tense a loud noise makes you jump ever improved or changed the outcome of any undertaking, let alone your serenity? Not in my experience. Worry is needless wear and tear on our mind and body, kind of like sitting in your car at a stop light, putting it in neutral and then pushing the accelerator to the floor. A whole lot of sound and fury and wasted energy with nothing much to show for it, except curious looks from those stopped next to you and maybe a large repair bill.
Our course then is simple, whatever we are about, take the next prudent step, the indicated action whatever that may be and when this is accomplished, stop. Nothing positive is ever had by continually rehashing something that is done. Worry and anxiety are simply forms of fear, and truly, what is there to be afraid of? Living on the Spiritual Basis we are in the world but not of it, today understanding we are all children of the Miraculous, loved beyond measure, eternal in every aspect that matters, this day just one day in our long schooling. So, we keep our head where our hands are, addressing the tasks in front of us to the best of our current ability, and when done we relax and take it easy, reminding ourselves that, though our true Self is eternal, we live one day at a time.

Silk sheets or city streets, Park Avenue or park bench, addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer of lives.
My name is Vincent Lee Jones and I have been in recovery since September 1985. My professional career began when I was nearly 20 years in recovery and was asked to work pro bono with at risk students at Huntington Beach High School. At the time I had developed a reputation within the at large recovery community as an effective communicator and was known to some of the faculty. After the death of two students from prescription drugs I was asked to start working with at risk students, which I did for nearly 5 years. Word of mouth lead to offers of compensated freelance Facilitator and Director positions with numerous local treatment facilities in the ensuing years.
As a retired Building Contractor/Designer, working in conjunction with a treatment facility, I created a construction program utilizing a workforce comprised almost exclusively of people new or returning to recovery, helping them to not only learn a trade and start making a living but since many of them had relapsed numerous times, to begin truly building a foundation with real aftercare to live free of active addiction. This program changed many lives.
In my 30+ years in recovery I have worked with thousands of individuals from all walks of life, teenagers to the retired, famous to infamous, prosperous to those living hand to mouth, adamant atheists to those embracing strong Religious beliefs; suffering from all manner of intoxicant and behavior-based addictions as well as those who love and care about them, both as a member in recovery Fellowships and as a treatment professional. I can be contacted at 714-366-1725.
I write and publish daily a recovery based nondenominational spiritually based blog at https://livinginspirit.blogspot.com with accompanying videos that can be found as well on YouTube and LinkedIn at Vincent Lee Jones.
