The Next Life?

First of all, I'm not keen on coming back. Let's get that out of the way right now. Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely happy with my life and wouldn't change a thing - but really, forever?  I've been working late,  have a pain in my elbow, need a dental check up....well yuck.   So if reincarnation means more decades of work and going through high school one more time with those ugly gym suits, count me out. And as for coming back as a bug or something, that doesn't thrill me either.

Seems 'past lives' are as popular as 'next lives'. If I was here before, I doubt if I was anyone famous. How creepy would it be to find out you were an axe murderer (assuming you aren't one now)?   And if we can't remember anything, what's the point?  I mean, if we have to start from scratch every life,  and keep learning the same stuff over and over, it seems like an  eternal waste of time.  But that's just me.

According to the Internet, based on my date of birth and a false name, I'll come back as a donkey, or on second try, a lama. Great.  Not even a cat or dog. No little boots for me in the rain. (Check it out - Oracle - maybe we'll all be lamas or donkeys).

If I do come back as a lama, I hope it's a city one!

So I guess my title here is misleading. My next life, if I have any say in the matter, won't happen. Unless, of course, there's a change in policy and I can remember the good stuff, find my family, cash in my own insurance money, and live happily ever after.....until the next life. I'm exhausted.

    Susan, I like your blog and loved it on

  2. I am pretty sure I don't want to know who I might of been in a past life. I carry enough angst about the mistakes I have made in this life. As for future lifes....I don't want to come back as a bug or a rodent as I would be creeped out by myself. In fact, I can't think of an animal that I would want to be. With my luck I would end up with a bad owner. Of course it I was a llama, I could spit in their face.

  3. Spitting would be great! You always think of the best things!
