At times, I feel very lost. Confused. Asking my self, what is the point of life? Will I always feel lost? Does true happiness really exist? True contentment?
Women are born with 1 million eggs, in a lifetime, they will release 300-400 eggs. In one male ejaculation, there are between 200-500 million sperm. In a month, for a young healthy female and male having unprotected sex, there is on average, only about 11% chance of getting pregnant without trying.
Maybe, the feeling of being lost, of having your back up against a wall…maybe it is actually a very natural feeling. Its how our journey began, from the day of conception, it has been a fight, an odds against you sort of thing. Some, obviously, face harder situations than others, but nonetheless, we all had to fight to get here, and have to fight stay here.
So, what am I trying to say…what is my conclusion…It was a fight to get here, so we should also realize we are so lucky to be here, even though it may not feel like it at times. It may feel like the odds are against us…but if you look at the math above, the odds have always been against us. Our conception, the egg and sperm you are made up of, coming together, that was pure luck. The right place at the right time.
I am lost, and I am lucky. We are all. We have to fight, but in being alive, we are lucky.
