RE: I didn't think I had habits until I really thought about it
I used to be a coffee girl.
Well, I guess I still am but my morning beverage of choice now is tea.
I don't make it at home now because I think I would have bad associations with it considering my current circumstances. Once I am divorced and in my own space, the tea will flow all day long.
Here's my habit:
I go to my studio in the village, walk through it turning on the lights and being thankful for this refuge I have made for myself.
I then make a cup of tea in a favorite mug that a friend made for me and let it steep.
I don't think I really start breathing for the day until I have that cup of tea in front of me.
I bring the cup to my nose and breathe it in deeply.
The first sip is heavenly.
Then my day begins.
