So, when I'm not pestering you all about what I've worn, or bought, or gripes I have with the plus size market, I am a Brown Owl. As in, I lead a group (troop for my US readers) of Brownies aged 7-10.
I have been a part of this organisation for years (since the age of 5 -> 27) and can't imagine my life any differently.
And now, with my life taking interesting pathways (including this corner of cyber space), I am desperate to prove to these girls that it is stronger to work together, then against each other.
Today, we worked on skills like memory, and watching them working together - skills that one doesn't have, the other helping them with... and it made me wonder:
When do we as adults 'learn' the behaviour whereby we notice what is 'wrong' with the people around us, not what is right:
Those trousers are too tight - instead of that colour really suits her.
And seeing those girls working together, made me so proud.
Much love my lovelies,
