As boring as biology class was at school, the idea of genetics are actually quite interesting. When you think about it, your body’s traits are a mixture of your mom and dad, as well as a tiny bit of your grandparents.
While we’re not exactly clones of our parents, it’s nice to see them in ourselves when we look in the mirror and in photos.
Whether you have your dad’s nose or your mom’s chin, you’ve got to admit, sharing something like that with your parents is quite special.
Our genetic differences from other people are also something to be admired. While others may think the difference between themselves and ‘other people’ as something to be worried about, it’s actually not that bad. No one is ‘normal’ and each other’s differences should be celebrated!
Genetic hand-me-downs come in all shapes and sizes.
For example, the ‘Dimples of Venus’ are a unique genetic trait. These dimples are created by a short ligament stretching between the posterior superior iliac spine and the skin. Trust me, it’s not as complicated as it sounds.
