You are indeed special

I had an interesting thought the other day.   Of all the options for mates and all the tragic events  that were avoided in order for your parents to meet and give birth to you. 

What can the odds be that you are standing here today?

Consider even further back, both your mother and father's parents had to meet somehow and birth them at a specific time. Your Grandmothers and Grandfathers parents had to also be born specifically so they could meet and start their posterity.  

In fact it took two people to meet and have you.  Four people to meet to have them, then 8 then 16 then 32 then 64, you get the idea.  For me 7 generations ago would put my ancestors living around 1700 to 1800 A.D.   128 people in the seven generations past had to meet and give birth to my ancestors in a world of billions for me to be writing this today.  What about the year 1400 A.D. or even B.C.  It is really incredible to think that we are here breathing air. 

So if the odds of being born are so incredibly large it is safe to say that you are a really special human being.  You are truly a miracle born of this earth.  What does that mean?

I believe you were born in this time against very unlikely odds to be able to do fantastic things. 

Be creative with your life and your work. 

Squeeze every ounce of joy you can out of every day.  

Help another person with their struggles without worry of reciprocity. 

Start viewing your life as it is, a miracle, and start to do work that matters.  Don't spend your days wasting away completing the daily grinds or you evenings watching T.V. waiting for bedtime.  Cut out all the non-essential items. 

You have more important things to do. 

Find out what they are

Find your specific talents and magnify them.

I wanted to write a short article encouraging people to break out of any "funk" that they may be in and start making something of thier lives. 

I see so many people wasting away always playing the victim role.  It is time to regain control of your life and realize just how special you are.

So what are the odds of being born? for the sake of making sure the number crunchers out there are satisfied a quick search on google reveals that If you go back 10 generations (250 years) the chance of you being born at all is at most 1 divided by 6 x 10100 or 

1 in 60000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000000000000000000000.
In gambling, even a chance of 1 to 100 is not worth a gamble.
Are you ever lucky to be alive
