October 1 signifies that in Canada, winter is just around the corner and that snow will be here very soon. This year, the snow is already ski ready in the Lake Louise area.
Snow reminds us that this is a time of sleeping for most of Nature. It reminds us to finish clearing out the flower beds and the garden, and prepare for next spring. It is a time when many of us sign up for courses because we are also preparing ourselves for the next spring when we hope to undertake changes in our life style or in our careers.
October then, is about planning. It is not about making hard and fast rules. It is about thinking about the choices that you wish to make, and putting those choices in to action.
