Scout Law - Cheerful

Scout Law - Cheerful

A Scout is Cheerful. A Scout looks for the bright side of life. He cheerfully does tasks that come his way. He tries to make others happy. Some people grumble when they are doing homework or losing a game. They might become upset if the weather turns bad on a Scout hike or if the trail is long and dusty. Others are cheerful. They jump at opportunities, and their sense of joy makes everything easier for them and those around them. You know that you cannot always have your way. Now and then you must do things that you don't like very much. A cheerful attitude can make the time go by more quickly, and can even turn a task you dislike into a lot of fun. You have the choice of whether or not to enjoy the experiences and challenges of life. You can complain if you want to and be grumpy all the time, but it is easier and much more enjoyable to decide from the start to be cheerful whenever you can. Cheerfulness is infections - the smile on your face can lift the spirits of those around you.
