I have been on a bit of a downward cycle in my attitude about Scouts for probably over a year now and it hasn't improved (as it always has in the past).
I haven't missed Cub Scouts during the holiday breaks and haven't thought "Great, it's Monday. Let's get me to Cubs" when we have been due to start again, even after the extended Summer break.
Cub Scouts has become little more than what I do on a Monday evening.
After much soul searching, I decided over the Christmas break that the time has come for me to jump and see where I land as my heart isn't in it now.
I will miss the camaraderie and good nature of some of the leaders who I have worked with for about 24 years, but that is about all, and I will keep in touch with them.
This decision has been a long time coming, but I think the time is right for me to go, before the great memories of the good times we have had are tainted by bitterness and resentment because I am just going through the motions for the next meeting / term / year or whatever.
My appointment as Cub Scout Sectioon Assistant will officially end on 28 February 2017.
