Positive thoughts and practices are the
weights that keep us sharp and toned.
Today was a DAY. I contemplated whether or not to write this post because I like to keep what I put on my platforms positive and inspiring. However, I realized that it may be even more inspiring to show strength in my vulnerability (took me a long time to say that) and show people that every day isn’t photo shoots and smiles.
Back story: The day before yesterday, I got a new phone at an AH--MAZING price. There was a great deal going on, and I partook in it. At the end of that night, I was in bed, following my nightly routine which is putting things in my notes that need to be done for tomorrow. I do that so my mind can rest and I won’t try to remember everything that needs to be done in my sleep. I sleep much better.
Well, as I pull up my notes in my phone, nothing is there...NOTHING. I have a specific “To-Do” note category and I saw nothing. When getting a new phone, everything is supposed to be transferred from the old to the new. Welp, that wasn’t the case.
Let me put things into perspective for you so you can understand how TRAGIC this was/is for me.
Within my notes contained many blog post ideas, notes for my future book, poems that randomly pop in my head and so much soooo more. All my notes from 2018 were gone.
G O N E.
To answer the question that you might be asking yourself, yes, of course I write things down. I sometimes consider myself an analog girl living in a digital world. However, these notes were accumulated from times that I’m out and about with no notebook, so I resort to technology and jot down my thoughts. Thoughts that are now gone (A thug tear just rolled down my face).
But wait, there’s more. Driving is therapeutic to me, especially when I’m traveling. So I use my voice recorder to record my ideas. Amazingggg ideas that are now…guess what…GONE.
Fury doesn’t even explain the amount of frustration and whirlwind of emotions that I felt. I could barely sleep. Before I went to bed, I set my alarm clock to call the store as soon as they opened to get assistance in resolving this issue. I ended up going to the store and after over an hour of being in there (I had a great person helping me), there wasn’t a solution. My phones content wasn’t properly transferred and I lost a lot.
Needless to say, I it wasn’t a happy day, but in the midst of my sulk, I asked God to please restore it all. All of the ideas that He placed in my mind and heart. Yes, losing it all was discouraging, but after praying, peace entered my body and although I don’t know the “how,” I know that He has my back and has it all under control. I then put positive energy and thoughts out knowing that it would all find its way back to me.
I said all this to show an example of how it’s okay and real that every day isn’t all chipper and joy. The things we endure in life aren’t always easy, but when you have a Father who’s in control of it all, that weight somehow gets lifted off of your shoulder and He handles it from there. It’s the best life.
I’m not sure what you have to endure or experience, but know that you’re not alone. Keep positive energy in and around you, and if you haven’t already, give God a try. He’s my bestie and I’m willing to share Him.
