2:00am Wednesday, I FOOLISHLY decided to download the macOS Sierra software (what was I thinking...believing the bouncing app telling me to upgrade!) and it decided to take my MacBook Pro hostage. My entire Wednesday was spent on the phone with Apple techs in different time zones as they instructed me to do any and everything and still nada... I finally was led to the Apple Store where they also tried to do any and everything until the only resolution for my nearly six year old laptop was to wipe it clean. Oh, and of course I have never backed it up...EVER (why would I? it's a Mac!!!). Thankfully, much of what I do is shared via the cloud but all my audio files for voiceover on GarageBand - gone!
I believe everything happens for a reason and of course, while sitting at the Genius Bar tired and spent, I had to wonder..."Ok GOD, just what are you up to? What point are you trying to make?" But watching my computer be wiped clean didn't upset me, instead I thought about the process of renewal and how all the things filling up space on my hard drive would be gone. Either I stress out over the loss or see the opportunity to start anew. All day I prayed that my computer would be saved but now I'm glad The Almighty didn't answer my prayer.
