Scout Master Minute by Mr. Brown

“New Year – New You”

Scouts, as you know, it is cliché to be thinking about a “new start” at this time of year. Why do we do it ? It is because human beings need such opportunities to start over. Why is that? Because we err; we make mistakes; we make poor choices. Yes, some things we can’t undo and we have to live with the consequences. But because we are human, we can LEARN: we don’t have to keep making those same mistakes and poor choices! Perhaps even more importantly, we all need hope that however badly we have messed up in the yesterday or last year, tomorrow can be different! That new tomorrow, that new you (and me!) is birthed through the decisions we make today.

Happy New Year Scouts!
