To Be Loved
A refresher for my newer followers! On the twenty-fourth of every month, I will post an answer to: What does it mean to you to be loved? These answers will be coming from my friends, family and anyone else with an answer. I decided on the twenty-fourth because this number has significant meaning to me. January 24, 2014 is my anniversary with my boyfriend, Ryan, so I thought this day would be fitting. For me, the twenty-fourth symbolizes the love that we share and what it means for us individually and collectively to be loved. Therefore, I thought it could symbolize the day I talk about this topic!
From the answers I have collected thus far, I know they have the same foundation. To be loved is a universal emotion all people hope to feel, so my hope with sharing these conversations is to highlight that universality, one feeling we all share that binds us together in some way. My role as a wedding and event planner in To Be Loved Events is to be there for my clients, supporting them, recognizing them and their needs and wants, and being there for anything, before, on or after their event. My role is to love my clients, and in doing so, knowing what makes people feel loved is essential. Recognizing what it means to people to be loved, highlights the reasons for my business’s existence. Special events are times to recognize how much you are loved and celebrate life with those people who love you most. Recognizing what it means to be loved is key to understanding how my business will operate.
Today's quote: "To be loved means to be taken care of everyday, not only when you need it most. It means being someone’s priority and always getting what you need out of the relationship. It’s a level of trust in those around you to help when you know you can’t do something on your own. It’s a connection with someone that is indescribable sometimes."
These word are the epitome of my business's mission: to be there for my clients everyday, not only when they need me most, to be someone my clients can trust when they can't do it on their own, to have a genuine connection with my clients and to always give my clients what they need out of our relationship before, during, and after their events.
I hope you will enjoy reading about what it means to be loved from so many different people. My business thrives off of the emotions of people and what they believe to be loved means. Comment below! What does being loved mean to you?
