“Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but looking out together in the same direction.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I love this quote for it’s unconventionality. It’s rebellious.
The words we often use to describe love are introverted ones. A classic example of this is the heart. The heart is a metaphor we use to imply emotion, intimacy, or desire. In the words above, love consists of “looking out”, not inward. The bond of love is expressed in a shared vision. This is an active love and purposeful love.
One thing you learn early on when running a small business is the importance of a business plan, or vision for where you are going. You need to have a finish line, target or map; otherwise, you are just left reacting to situations and this will inevitably lead to burnout and failure.
You have the passion, the know how, and the “heart,” but without a clearly defined direction you are going to become lost, confused, and frustrated in your pursuit of fulfillment.
We believe in love that is built on a shared vision, and that is creative. Relationships of this kind are deliberate, and therefore much more agile and able to withstand the stormy seas that are sure to arise.
What is more intimate, desirable, and emotional than seeing a shared vision being brought to fruition? Perhaps only the birth of a child, and that is as apt a metaphor as any: the two become one.
Incidentally that is the title of a lovely little book by Bob Goff. We high recommend giving it a read. The books message is one of truth and inspiration. And it embodies this quote fully.
We hope you thoroughly enjoy this beautiful and elegant rural wedding at our favorite Prince Edward County Wedding Venue, Fields on West Lake.
Maureen and Chris certainly embody the sort of people who have a shared vision as well as shared heart. Congratulations on your marriage AND the new little addition that is on the way!
