What made you?

I visited a friend’s folks today and his mom was talking about this detective show for a bit. Honestly I was unclear of the tie-in at first and then she said the detective stunned the killer by asking “what made you?”

I always leave my convos here with some unplanned wisdom and this one really came from the blue. It’s essentially the concept of you weren’t born a [fill in the blank] so you’re not stuck.

In my work and life this concept keeps coming up in terms of addiction and trauma. But in the same way we can probably look at it as another method of realizing what brought you from blank slate to the dope things you’re up to now.

A good time to remember mentors and influences you love, and zoom out from the drudges a bit to smile at the path.
