You are Magnificent


YOU…this minute…reading these words…YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT.

ME? You might ask.


How do *I* know that *YOU* are magnificent?

You are magnificent…simply because you exist.

Imagine….all of the things that had to occur in order for you to be here, this very moment….all of the things in the history of the world that led up to right now…you, just where you are…reading these words.

Forgetting the things that had to occur this day….or even in your lifetime that led up to this moment…..

There were only two people in the history of mankind that could have come together to create you….and those two human beings had to somehow FIND one another….and then engage in sexual activity at PRECISELY the right point in time for that PARTICULAR sperm to join with that PARTICULAR egg …in order to bring you about….


Each of those two human beings….had the exact same odds…of never being born.

And so on, and so on, and so on. All of the events…the ‘coincidences’…as well as the hereditary combinations that had to occur…through generations and generations of human beings….

Until….the likelihood that any given person would ever come into so small…so very very unlikely, that it is no small miracle that any of us are here.

But here you are.

You exist.

And THAT is absolutely magnificent.

Soooooo….you have been born…and there is no other person, ever, in the history of the planet, not one single person who has ever been born that is just like you.

You are unique.

You are special.

If you aren’t already convinced of that fact (many of us are not), I am sorry.

I am sorry that you have spent one day alive not knowing that you are special…that you are magnificent.

You are.

If you were born and abandoned in the woods and no other human being even knows that you exist (unlikely that you would be reading this..but…) you are STILL….magnificent.

You are magnificent…because you exist.
