This morning I want to celebrate the simple fact that I exist.
What are the odds of me existing here and now?
From the big to the most insignificant ones, how many events had to align throughout millions of years only for me to be here and now?
One Dr Ali Binazir crunched some numbers and calculated that the probability of me existing is 1 in 102,685,000. To be honest, I think that the odds are way smaller, but it doesn’t change much. That number already means basically zero!
Yet, I am here, now.
I exist, love, think, feel, write, play, taste and much more.
Isn’t that a miracle?
Often I give my existence and the existence of the people I love for granted. As if being alive here and now is a given.
But it’s not.
So, this morning I just want to celebrate life and remind myself to be grateful.

I’ll try to explain the infinite
How rare and beautiful it is to even exist”from Saturn by Sleeping At Last
