When you're eating a doughnut in a dream, it can mean that you have recently earned money from doing something fun rather than your usual source of income. Perhaps there is scope to do this on a more regular basis.
Another thought process is that doughnuts are a sign of feeling comfortable and secure- in your job, at home with your partner or simply with yourself.
Doughnuts can be synonymous with idleness so it’s possible you feel you are wasting your time on something that won’t benefit you in the long term.
One interpretation is greed or gluttony- in a literal or metaphorical sense. Have you been acquiring or eating more than you need to lately? Or indulging in other things that bring you momentary pleasure in your waking hours?
Alternatively, have you been fulfilling your needs of late? It could be an indication that you are putting yourself first and engaging in some well-needed self-care and time off at last. Or maybe you have just given yourself a little treat because you thought you deserved it.
Perhaps you don't feel whole and as a result you're see yourself as lost and believe that you're still trying to discover who you are, what your purpose is and what you want in life.
More positively, it could be that there is plenty of room for growth and development in your waking hours and many opportunities to make the most of.
If you were enjoying eating a doughnut, it could symbolic of the happiness and joy you're feeling your waking life right now. Be mindful however, that it might not be forever- cherish the good things as they happen and never take them for granted.
Doughnuts are also a sign of missing the point of something- a situation or an action and you don’t see the purpose of it or understand it fully.
