At work we’re in the middle of a huge softwareconversion. This project is allconsuming and mentally draining. Thereis so much prep work that needs to be done prior to the go-live date it’soverwhelming. So, needless to say I’mstressed out all the time. I try not tobring my anxiety home . . . at least not to take it out on my family. I hope I’m being successful.
But, my work follows me into my dreams. I’ve been dreaming about the project almostevery night . . . and it’s exhausting. I’mnot getting any real rest because that’s all I’m thinking about. To make matters worse, the other night I notonly dreamt about my regular job, I also somehow managed to work in mypart-time bartending job, as well. Aaargghh!
Last night I caught a break . . . I didn’t dream about workat all.
I dreamt I was riding a bicycle. It was too tall for me and my feet didn’ttouch the ground. I’m peddling along andI realize that the brakes on the bike don’t work. It doesn't seem to bother me and I keeppeddling along at a steady rate of speed. I’m approaching the top of along winding downhill stretch. Then a guy comes up along side of me and asks if he can get a lift. I tell him okay. But instead of hopping on the back of thebike . . . where he was going to sit, I don’t know . . . he starts runningalongside the bike and pushing it to make it go faster. I’m like, “Whoah buddy! I don’t have any brakes!.” Hechecks it out and discovered the brake cables are all loose.
That’s all I remember . . . what in the hell is thatsupposed to mean??
Interpretation of the dream from only dream dictionaries is as follows:
To dream that you are riding a bicycle means that you arefeeling confused and unsteady. Ridingit down hill, if the rider be a woman, calls for care regarding her good nameand health; misfortune hovers near.
To dream that your brakes failed suggests that your life isunorganized and you need to take more control of issues and situations.
You should achieve harmony between all aspects of your lifeif you want to reach your goals. If you have difficulties riding the bicycle,then it implies that you doubt your ability to achieve success withoutassistance.
Well, there it is. I can actually go along with that one!
