 Hi, my name is ellee ven, and I am a self proclaimed Groovalutionary. Today, we are going to rethink traditions. Have you ever been served by a hunky Argentinian in the cafe? I have. And it forced me to rethink the heat, if you know what I'm saying. I like my coffee, I like it hot. So when he brought that milk frothed and heated, I thought my life will never be the same. And so, the rethinking of all of my traditions began. I will tell you all about it when we get back here.

One of the things that we all have learned during COVID is that we really can't take things for granted. And it really had me thinking, rethinking all of my traditions. The traditions that we consider traditional, the holidays. Or the traditions that I bring into my life, the way I make my coffee, the way that I hang out with my dog, the way that I actually program music in my house in order to create an environment. Those are the kinds of traditions that I want to unlock today. Because life is pretty fantastic, and it's just a small switch of mindset to bring us to a spot where we can actually really enhance our lives hour to hour, minute by minute.

Some traditions are not meant to be changed like, do not put tofu in my turkey. Do not try to give me a full burger, just say that it's a veggie burger. I don't want something that's like a hamburger. I can enjoy a veggie burger and I can enjoy a hamburger. Okay. But don't tell me that the veggie burger tastes like the hamburger. No, these are traditions that are meant to be left untouched. On the other hand, there are so many ritual, small traditions in our lives that can actually make life so much happier. I think about how my dog is affected by new traditions. COVID, we've been real close. So I try to create different times, different experiences in my living space.

And so, that we have these bonding times, and then it becomes a time for me to journal. It becomes a time for me to hang outside and actually get to meditate. Also, sometimes day to day, when you have nothing to do all day long and you're home all day long, it's so easy to not consider those things tradition or to let them fall to the wayside. But those are the things that are the anchors. Those are the things that actually help us create the life that we really dream about. This vlog is just about rethinking your traditions. Traditions are more than just about Thanksgiving and not wearing white past September. There are other things to consider. How do you like your coffee? How do you want your day to go? Think about these things as special ways to enhance your life and to help spark a Groovalution in your life and in those around you. My name is ellee ven. I'm a self-proclaimed Groovalutionary. Let me know the things that you're doing to rethink your traditions.
