I enjoyed reconnecting with the organization on a smaller scale like my childhood troop days. I learned and served per a leaders request. It was rewarding learning team building exercises, seeing young leaders grow and develop while remaining friends. I cherished the team leader approach to the troop and how each leader added their own leadership style to the overall experience. I feel they all supported one another and the Girl Scout Mission.
What I wish was different
I wish I had a child of my own to be a scout mother with. Arroyo Grande and SLO has long been a favorite area for myself. I wish I could have involved my younger sister and friends.
Stay true to who you are and reconnect as often as possible. Remember there are levels of friendship and periods where relationships suffer or regain their losses.
