Some family traditions can stem back generations. The traditions are greatly revered and held up each year. However, sometimes you might feel that the need to freshen up some of your traditions to get them off of “auto-pilot”.
1. Does your family have sayings or traditions that go back a generation or two (or even more)? Share one. Has your family ever altered the tradition to ‘freshen’ it up?
2. What do you do in your daily life that you feel is on auto-pilot?
3. How hard would it be for you to stop observing one of your family traditions or take a different route to work, drink your morning cup of coffee from a different cup or serve dinner at a different time of day (or fill in your own auto-pilot activity)? Why?
