Turning up to the two magpies bakery was a shock this morning at 8:52am and it was a huge queue, seats are sat on while gobbling the latest beautifully baked food, knocking back the coffee for the infuse of caffeine.
For most people, they would walk out, skip the queue, go elsewhere and complain about the lack of space, whatever is the latest rolling excuses from the impatient people.
Yet, this was a rare occurrence today because people were happy to wait because they were aware of the shop staff taking their time to serve, placing orders for bread and cakes to be baked.
These people get it. They understand. They are prepare to wait.
This is the phenomenon call slowing down.
It is something we all need to do in today's world. The world rushes everywhere, the need of information immediatley, people are caught up in the petty world of social networks, tensions and stress rising... Argh, we can't have that.
Why should you slow down? Watch how the bakers make the bread, watch the art of slowing down where they cook the bacons and eggs for your morning food. Watch how the coffee are made, you don't see a rush here. It is all done in a good amount of time. This post was written in a slow manner to allow my thoughts and passions to ebb away.
Embrace this idea as much as you can and teach it to everyone you know. Suddenly, time seems non existent and the world opens up for you.
