If you have lost your spending password that is not a big problem but a bit of an inconvenience to you. Your ADA is always safe because they are stored in the blockchain and as long as you have your wallet passphrase then you can access your ADA.
To reset your password, please make sure you have your wallet passphrase and then delete and restore your wallet (the restore may take an hour or two depending on your machine). When you restore you can choose a new spending password.
