No matter your shape or size, be it petite, tall, curvy, thin, large or anything in between, you are beautiful!
If you’re finding it hard to believe me, think about this:
The odds of your parent’s meeting and feeling attracted to each other or even falling in love is 1 in 40,000,000 and the chance that they created you is 1 in 400,000,000,000,000,000 (1 in 400 quadrillion). You can roughly compare this very long number to the volume of the Atlantic Ocean (in cubic meters).
But wait, it doesn’t stop there; I’ve only just started.
You represent 4 billion years of life. The odds of a lineage remaining unbroken (living to reproduction age and adding to the “family tree”) since the beginning of human existence is 1 in 1045,000. Even if I wanted to, I couldn’t write that as a whole number. So instead, you’ll just have to imagine the 10, followed by 45,000 zeroes. It’s bigger than the universe. In fact, even if there were a universe in all the particles of the universe, it still wouldn’t be as big as that number. Let that sink in for a minute.
I’m still not done.
The odds of receiving the right combination of DNA from your parents and everything developing correctly to make the you that you are is 1 in 102,640,000. I’m not even going to try and give an example for that one.
When you add everything up, it comes to 1 in 102,685,000. So basically, the odds that you exist is zero (actually a number very, very close to zero) which means you are a miracle!
So even if you don’t believe you’re beautiful (even though you are!), the sheer fact that you exist is a beauty that simply cannot, and should not, be ignored!
