January 2023 Advisers Minute

“I have over and over again explained that the purpose of the Boy Scout and Girl Guide Movement is to build men and women as citizens endowed with the three H’s namely: Health, Happiness, and Helpfulness. The man or woman who succeeds in developing these three attributes has secured the main steps to success in this life.”

That was a speech made by Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of scouting. Although it’s a good speech, the only thing I would add is another H: Humor. It is very important for good mental health to have a good sense of humor. Accept things that go wrong as a learning Experience. Look back at your mistakes and find humor in them. Your misdoings are there to help guide you through the future. However, don’t let them bog you down. 

Yours In Service,
Mark Ashburn
Nguttitehen Lodge Adviser
