2/20/12 – Flip a Coin


“When found with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you, but because in that brief moment when the coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you are hoping for.” – Unknown

It’s funny to read this quote because it’s such an easy way to trick ourselves to think it doesn’t matter if it’s head or tails, that either option is fine, and we just need someone to pick it for us. (Someone being a coin.) We trick ourselves because, like this quote says, deep down inside we know which side of the coin we want it to land on, we actually DO know what we are hoping for and the coin’s answer is unimportant in the end. You just feel it! Try it, flip a coin over a big decision you can’t seem to make. The subconscious mind will amaze you with the power it has.

We already know what we are hoping for, sometimes we are just too scared to make a choice and we doubt that gut feeling. But this quote reminds us to go with our gut, that feeling you sometimes ignore, look past the fear and go with that split second feeling you get with the answer while the decision is in the air. Don’t even look down at the coin once it lands, it’s just metal. And if you want to wait til’ the coin drops, go for it. Because, I can almost bet that if it lands on one end, you’ll feel a little disappointment inside and, if it lands on the other, you will feel some internal relief.
