Do you have any regrets
I try to live life with out to many regrets, they can tend to weigh you down if you collect them. We all do have regret, sometimes it is little one like maybe not going out with that friend then seeing they has the best night ever, or sometimes there are larger like not taking the time to really get to know a grandparent before they passed away.
Back in October of 2010 I wrote about my scouting regrets so I am going to share those with you again for this Challenge post.
I have been involved with scouting now since the age of 8 so 26 years and I have two. One of which I have been able to in part correct and the other will always be there.
My first regret is that I never attended a world scout Jamboree as a Participant, this is the one I have managed to impart correct as I have attended as and adult. when I was a Scout the group I was involved was a great group but very insular, they did not really mix in District and County type events. There was only really two we got involved in, the Raft Race and the Canoe Camp, now don’t get me wrong we have a very active scouting programme and an annual week-long camp etc. however we never got to hear about the other opportunities in scouting such as Jamborees and the such like
The Second and my biggest scouting regret is I never had the opportunity to complete my Explorer Belt.
I am not really sure why this happened, probably something to do with not quite fitting in with my venture unit, getting a job, going to university etc. There is no complaints or finger-pointing it is down to choices I made at the time and as such I missed out on completing this prestigious award.
I guess as an adult I could support or organise an explorer belt expedition, but I will never hold the award myself.
They are mine, what are your regrets? do you hold on to them? to you find a way to either fully or in part correct/remove those regrets? – let me know
The next Challenge will cover the topic of movies – see you soon
