Starting Over

When I was the beach yesterday having a beautiful time, out of the blue a wave comes up and washes over everything we had setting on the sand, including my cell phone.

My phone is completely destroyed and I lost everything.
Every phone number, photo, everything I piece I had written on it.

No iCloud back up.

Nothing synced.

Everything in it is gone.

I saw it happen in slow motion and it has been replaying over and over in my mind ever since.

There were photos of my kids and I during my visits, friends that have come and gone, and times I want to remember.

Those photos are gone.

I definitely relied on my phone a lot.

I wish I could’ve acted quicker or done something different.

The fact is that I can’t go back and change what has happened no matter how much I would like to.

Like in all other life situations, I must push forward.

As I now work to rebuild my contact list and set up an entirely new phone, I can’t help but wonder what it is I can learn from this experience.

Everything is truly and always in perfect order.

What is the universe trying to tell me?
