Sage Advice

Over the last couple of days I rewatched the entire first season of Ted Lasso. I think it's my 3rd or 4th time binging it. The quote above is from Episode 8. Sage, sage advice. 

So many times I have surprised people (usually military bosses but sometimes fellow room moms) who made a judgement without being curious enough to ask what I really thought, or how I could contribute to the challenge at hand. I've brought my son to a staff meeting with a general officer, and I've attended a room parent meeting in uniform, and got the same looks at both. I am not being judge-y about what people expected of me, heck I do it too, but I had to learn to love surprising people. The dart scene in Episode 8 - ha! - makes a good point about this.

I'll probably watch Ted Lasso another couple times while I wait for Season Two, which starts July 23rd. I CAN'T WAIT. Catch the trailer below...
