When we lose focus in a world ravaged by crisis, poverty, greed, cruelty, death, hunger, starvation, anxiety, discrimination, etc., and a cellphone is all that we lose; we have a lot to Celebrate.

Spiritual Tree Weekly Prompt ‘Celebration.

I have been having some personal problems lately that had been affecting my creativity. When I have a problem, my God is the first one I reach out to. I pray, read my bible, then wait for his guidance and instructions.

My country is under curfew and a lockdown because of the crisis our world is experiencing. I walk as often as I can because it is therapeutic. This morning, I grabbed my Samsung Galaxy S9, put it in my bag, and walked to get a few stuff at the market. My last buy was a green plantain to make almond porridge. As I stopped and picked up the plantain, the lady said to me, “your stuff is falling out of your bag.”

I quickly looked down and saw a large slit at the side of my bag close to the bottom. In the crowd, someone used a razor to cut the side of my bag and stole my phone. That phone is my second brain; it holds all of my business and financial transactions. My banking information will be compromised. It is also my camera.

I am a deep thinker, and I often think with my heart. God gave me the wisdom to make the right decisions, so I always have a solution for all of my problems. I will sometimes allow my heart to get into the middle of what is right. Then I paid a hefty price for it. God gave me a solution to the problems I have been having lately, and I again allow my heart to make the decision. I lost my focus on the important things in life.

When we lose focus in a world ravaged by crisis, poverty, greed, cruelty, death, hunger, starvation, anxiety, discrimination, etc., and a cellphone is all that we lose; we have a lot to Celebrate.

My phone is important to me. It can be replaced. Some of the essential things in life are irreplaceable. I think God is telling me is that without focus, I will lose more, and some of what I stand to lose will be gone forever.

I am a fast learner, and my mistakes are never repeated, and if I attempted to repeat any acts of stupidity, pain is my reminder. It is also my guide.

So today, I am Celebrating focus.
