How would you want to live your next life? I think Woody Allen may have the answer.

In my next life I want to live backwards.
You start out dead and get that out of the way.

Then you wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day.

You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day.

You work for 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement.

You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school.

You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilties, you become a baby until you are born And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then ....

Voila - You finish off as an orgasm! I REST MY CASE

My Next Life - Woody Allen


Isn't it time we turned Maslow's hierarchy upside down?


Why wait until we have our food, shelter, social and esteem needs satisfied in that order before we go into self-actualisation?

Let's get 'dead' out of the way and wake up to feeling and leading better everyday. You never know, there might just be an orgasm at the end of it.

  1. I see the light hearted side, but I'm happy with my life this way round. My mistakes I can learn from and move on - imagine knowing that you are heading inexorably towards making one!

    Death will be that last thing that I experince in this life and I am content with that thought. When it comes I will try and enjoy the ride as I have tried to do with everything else that has come my way over the last 57 years.

    For now I have, I hope, still some time to experience more, help others and to keep on having fun through making things happen.

    Regards
