You do have a lovely way with words.

Now let me give you a word of advice that I give to myself when feeling overwhelmed. The chances of you ever coming into existence in this incomprehensibly vast universe of time and space is so slim that the odds cannot possibly be calculate by the world’s most sophisticated computers.

Thus such a rarity of existence, though but of a blink of an eye, is far too precious not to be gloried in for all its worth.
