oh, i see.

So, this morning, like most mornings, I woke up way before my alarm went off and being the morning person that I am, I decided to start the day a few minutes early. But, before I could even get out of bed my head was inundated with thoughts of chocolate donuts. Yes, donuts. I've never wanted a chocolate donut as bad as I wanted one at 6:50 this a.m.

Being the lover-of-self that I am, I couldn't deny myself this treat, so I swung by the place so eloquently titled, "Donuts" by my house and got myself two tasty little treats. The whole way to work I was bothered by the fact that I was almost woken up by these intense thoughts about morning-time pastries.

I took to google to solve my woes and could only come up with the meaning of dreams about donuts. Close enough. "To see a doughnut in your dream, represents the Self. It suggests that you may be feeling lost and still trying to find yourself and your purpose in life. Alternatively, it refers to growth, development and nurturance. You are not completely whole." Umm...oh, I see that.

And what a story it's going to be. When I'm finally elected Senator or cure cancer or win the lottery or have a child and get a reality television show or simply, just discover my purpose in life I can attribute it to today, the day I stopped searching and found a chocolate donut.

My husband's alarm clock went off this morning just as I was about to join in with a bunch of old (as in, on canes and walkers kind of old) black gospel singers as they all busted out singing "ain't no mountain high enough" in my living room.

I love random dreams.
Oh and hi. This is my first visit to your blog. :)

I have never seen an explanation for dreaming about donuts, but I love it. Having written a book about donuts (I see you're a writer too) this speaks volumes to me! My book is called DONUT DAYS -- it's for a young adult audience, but I think the donut appeal is universal. Of course, that might just be me. Anyway, I just wanted to say I appreciated the donut psychology in your blog. Thanks for posting!

This seems like a wish-fulfillment dream if there ever was one. You want donuts; you dream about donuts.

However, the dream could also mean that you need to indulge yourself in a way that doesn't have to do with food.
