Flip a Coin

I had this dream yesterday... It was kinda jumbled and weird as dreams tend to be (mine are, at least), but there is one part that keeps replaying in my head. It was rather insightful, as dreams tend to be (especially mine, *wink*).  In the dream, Hubs and I stopped at a random bar and grille. Halfway through the meal he stands up and calls the attention of the servers, bar tenders and the few patrons sitting nearby. Then he starts talking all this inspirational stuff (sorry, Hun, I can’t remember the specifics, but the group seemed to like it). At the end he tosses a quarter to me and announces that I, too, have a quick sound bite for them.

Here’s what it was:

I flipped the coin into the air and told the bartender to guess “heads or tails”. I go on to explain that there was a fifty-fifty chance that he was right. That part was out of my control – left up to God/the Universe/What-have-you. Still, I was in charge of throwing the coin in the first place. So it’s like this: we have our part to play and so does the Cosmos. The point is to know your role and give it your best shot, but just as importantly, don’t confuse what you’re supposed to do and what is up to God.

Of course, it was just a dream, so ya know…  *smirk* 


  1. Some of my best ideas have come from dreams. Remembering that you can only control so much sounds like a good idea.

  2. My dreams can be pretty inspiring, too ;)
    I've heard many successful authors credit their dreams as well.
    (Supposedly that's how the Twilight series got started...)
    Thnx for your input!
