We are all born with a genetic endowment, the biochemical blueprints of our DNA, that dictates who we are. However, this is not the end of the conversation of who we are meant to be.
Rather, our environments constantly impact gene expression, meaning that factors like nutrition, societal patterns and lifestyle alter how our basic blueprints are translated into personality and behavior. This phenomena, known in biology as “epigenetics”, means that we are all products of our environments.
It may seem silly to be thankful for a biological phenomenon, but I am so thankful for epigenetics...
