I’ve been watching the Netflix show Cheer.
It’s occasionally cringeworthy (college students and cheer drama) but overall entertaining. I’ve definitely gained appreciation for the level of effort needed to pull off a three-minute routine.
These kids are strong, not just in their ability to do the stunts, but also in the way they support each other and in their determined approach to delivering a perfect performance. They’re human, which means they’re flawed. But they try anyway, and they keep trying. They push themselves and each other in pursuit of their passion.
Today’s cuppa is a nod to the fact that I originally tuned in for the backflips, but I’ve stayed tuned in for the message.
