Universe is small?

Last night i was outside of my apt,
and i was watching the up above to sky
and i thought,
how small our life is 
while i see some stars blinking that probably does not exists 
at this very moment 

Our Universe, 
Milky Way, 
Our galaxy,
everything is infinite.
Even how much do we even know about
the unobservable universe,
beyond the reach of the strongest telescope in the world.
beyond the reach of the inter-galactic spaceships we built,
or will be building.

Isn't it fascinating and equally ironic to know that the light from the smallest, most redshifted galaxies originated maybe roughly 13 billion years ago,
while we ponder upon the memories from last year!
Talk about mathematical comparison between the two, huh?
and when i look at the event horizon at night,
i feel so relaxed and calm
unlike i used to feel 
when i was child 
and i used to look at the stars
and wondering 
what and where the hell am i looking at?

And if you start considering Multi verse,
how many this piece of crap 
exists elsewhere?

P.S: Its kinda obvious how small our earth is, if you consider the enitre (observable + Unobservable) Universe, the position of our earth is like this :

Universe -> Observable universe -> Large-scale structures -> Virgo Supercluster -> Local Group -> Milky Way Galaxy -> Orion Arm of the Milky Way -> Gould Belt -> Local Bubble -> Local Interstellar Cloud -> Solar System
 -> Earth
