How to use "Seldom" in context?

Lately I've been noticing a phrase a lot: "seldom." Whenever I hear someone say this, it immediately makes me think of the song "Stairway to Heaven," because the lyrics go, " seldom do we see the things that we're looking for." And that's definitely true, especially when it comes to finding happiness.

Being seldom means that we might not see good things happening all that often, but when they do, they're really something.
