A Scout looks for the bright side of life. He cheerfully does tasks that come his way. He tries to make others happy.
Or as the CS Leader Book says -
Cub Scout Leader Book (2010), p. 16
Having a positive attitude means being cheerful and setting our minds to look for and find the best in all situations.
Be positive in your thoughts and words. Be cheerful. Look for the bright side of all situations.
Keep a good sense of humor.
Think good thoughts.
Believe in yourself.
Trust your friends, family, and teammates.

DEN MEETING TOPICS
When a Den Meeting occurs depends on when you start your year and how often you meet. A Den that starts in August will be doing meetings 1 & 2 then, and 3& 4 in September. A den that meets three times a month will do 1, 2, and 3 in September. The pace is up to you!!
