Against all odds

Against all odds, you won the life lottery and got to be born, as opposed to others who didn't. Now that you're here, try to do your best, even though you will make mistakes. Lots of them. So will other people. When you screw up, realize it's a teaching moment and learn from it.
 
Keep in mind that, except for those who beat the odds, in 100 years there will be all new people. This info usually puts things into better perspective.
 
Remember, nobody gave you an instruction book before you came into this existence. Nobody is perfect, not even you. But that's how you learn and grow, right?
 
You might be a jerk on some days and a near-saint on others; however, if you can get out of this life with more days as a better person than not, it's commendable. Don't give up, don't give in.
 
Now, go out there and kick some arse!
