Surprisingly finding things for the Personal Values section, especially the phase three section. However, it hit me that I am already doing something that relates to my personal values. This blog. I have been keeping this blog for a couple of years now and updating it with the important things I have been doing along my guiding journey.
This blog has been used for organising my notes for Look Wider, meaning that I can share with other people what I am doing for each octant and how I have found it. The blog has always helped me to find other guiding blogs and have helped me with finding and sharing ideas for activities and logging.
I have written on this blog talk of activities at Brownies, my personal thoughts relating to Girl Guiding topics, of the time I tried out as a Rainbow leader, of the camps and holidays, everything I have done as a ranger and my ALQ journey.
This blog is an opportunity to get my thoughts towards, share my excitement and in years to come look back and see where my journey have come from and how I got wherever I am.
One: Become an Organ Donor
Organ donation is something that has always been important to me. I want to be able to help people in anyway I can and if that can continue when I am no longer alive to witness then that’s even better. I was around 16 or 17 when I signed up, and since have had my donor card somewhere I can easily get to it,
Two: Sign a Petition
As an opinionated person, if an opportunity comes up to try and make a difference that is something I want to do. Over time I have signed a number of petitions, both in paper and online format. The most recent one I have signed was to try and get Tesco to stop selling eggs from caged hens. A link to the petition can be found here.
Three: Vote in an Election.
Since before I even turned 18, I believed it was important for everyone who has a vote to use it, no matter what their opinion is. 2010 was frustrating for me as I turned 18 a month after the general election. Since turning 18 though, I have always used my vote. Most recently it was for the council and police election. I will be voting again in a couple of weeks for the EU referendum.
