She gave me 'a look'. You know, one of *those* looks.
"It's quite hard, she's in the top set"
"Well, we've both had a look and have no idea, so..."
Puzzled, I left it there and went home.
I'm her fitness instructor. I go to work in trainers and trackies.
I know about step, I know about weights, I know about running.
Which means I don't know, or worse, I can't know about maths(*).
She only sees what I am now.
And I got to wondering if we all do this. We make assumptions. We see what's in front of us.
We need to go further than this. Much further.
We need to be open to the possibility that it wasn't always this way. That people have stories. And journeys. That they may be capable of things that you have no inkling of.
And here's the other thing...
Let's also think of what they might be capable of in the future. What they may become.
Let's stop making assumptions.
