Bull headed - me, never!

Last night I dreamt there were two bulls in my front yard who kept escaping through the fence and getting onto the road. So of course I had to look up all the meanings for dreaming about bulls. 

To see a bull in your dream symbolises stubbornness, strong will, strength, and power. The dream may be telling you that it is time to take a stand and be more assertive. Alternatively, the bull indicates a rich, prosperous, and abundant life. Consider also the metaphor, "being bull-headed". You need to learn to compromise in a situation. Or it could be a pun on something that is "bull", as in crap or worthless. 

I think I'll take the rich, prosperous and abundant life definition, although I was actually told the other day that I have an assertive personality by a high level manager for which everyone assured me that from him that was definitely a compliment, and then he assigned me a task that no-one else wanted to take on. Love that!

I'm stubborn and strong willed as well - I think that sometimes I could quite easily annoy myself if I had to work and / or live with me. So I guess all in all, the dream is quite prophetic for where my life is at the moment.

I'm four weeks out from a 16 day break from work, not that I'm counting down the days or anything. I'm looking forward to some relaxing days of sleeping in and reading and writing. The joys of now having teenage boys who understand the need for sleep-ins and 'me' time that young children don't.

As much as I miss the days of having toddlers and the lead up to Christmas I'm also relishing the freedom and quiet of now having self sufficient children. I just borrow my grandson when I need reminding of the simpler things in life. There's nothing quite like experiencing the joy and laughter in a child's eyes when everything delights them and enchants them.

I'm off to spend the afternoon writing, all of the household chores are done, hubby is going to work shortly and so the rest of the day is mine. It's a hard life I lead sometimes, but someone has to do it. Have a great week everyone.


  1. Being bull-headed can take you places in life. I've been accused of that a time or two myself. Enjoy your break when it gets here!

    1. I think bullheadedness is a good thing sometimes Karen, sometimes it gets me into trouble, but that just makes life interesting. You're right it can take you places as well

  2. so agree with you and I believe my family and co=workers would agree we are the same type of person. While my kids are all grown I do miss the days when we had little feet about and love it when I go see my little ones. Come over and visit us at

  3. Your title made me smile.

    I love how the dream "explainers" cover all their bases!


Everyone has something valuable to say and I would love for you to share your thoughts
