Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle

The Weekly Photo Challenge brief for this week asked “This week, show us something that’s a HABIT. It could be your daily walk to the bus stop, or your daily paper lying on the doorstep. Maybe it’s the guy behind the counter at the deli you always visit for lunch, the stuffed bunny your child must have at bedtime, or the view from your desk as you sit down to blog.Capture a moment both constant and fleeting. We look forward to the glimpses into your everyday.Habit. The stuff of the everyday — places we go, things we do, people we see.”

Now something I do every week day is the school run, something I have been doing for just over eighteen years (scary number) over the still ongoing school life of my three children. But that doesn’t seem like a habit, more of a duty, a necessity.  So I had a little think about what do I do everyday without fail and that has to be indulging in my morning cuppa. I am not a morning person and I definitely function better after my first cup of tea, I am more human shall we say. Not a fancy cup of tea either, just a very traditional plain and simple brew with milk, no sugar, made uncouthly in the mug with a tea bag (not even in a teapot, so unrefined) seems a bit boring for a weekly photo challenge but a habits a habit. Sorry for this uninteresting set of photos this week, it’s hard to make a cup of tea look exciting!

HABIT is a routine of behaviour that is repeated regularly and tend to occur subconsciously.
