OCTOBER'S ARRIVAL

1 october 2018

October has arrived and with it the anticipation of cooler nights spent indoors snuggled under a warm blanket on the couch with a good book to read. However, the heat of summer lingers as the weather does not yet realise that the calendar has changed, advancing another month towards winter.

Autumn brings us closer towards the end of the year when we find ourselves seemingly more grateful than other months of the year. When we start seeing everything pumpkin. When orange and red dominate the shops we enter and the scent of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger overwhelm our olfactory senses.

As with spring, autumn can be a season for new beginnings. A time for reflection on ways to improve aspects of our lives which would bring us closer to that sense of fulfillment we desire. That contentment we strive to achieve. But in order for us to reach that destination, we need to embrace inevitable change and realise that things can never be the same tomorrow as they are today.
