Clover – MY STORY
Love, Belief, Courage, Gratitude, Happiness
At the age of 26 my life was a mess and I didn’t know where to turn. I was alone, a single mother in London, I had no money and I couldn’t find work. I had no family around to support me and, as hard as I tried to get a job, the recession had hit hard and I had no qualifications. Everyday I would wake up and hope that I was in a dream, that it wasn’t true that I couldn’t pay my bills, that I would have to go without food today because it could make the weekly shop go further.
I didn’t want to get out of bed; I didn’t want to do anything.
But right when I was at my lowest ebb, it hit me – nobody was going to come and save me. I was going to have to save myself. I made the decision to take control and change my life.
That’s when The Words came to rescue me. I wrote words of empowerment and left them around the house to encourage myself. I wrote them on notepads, kept them in my purse, placed them on the mirror, or even wrote them on my hand. They were all positive reminders that I shouldn’t give up when things got tough. When I felt scared or sad they helped me to keep on fighting and remember that it was my conscious choice to change my life for the better.
I really believe that it was these words of empowerment gave me the ability and the strength to grow and achieve a great deal in my life.
So, with these words ringing through my head, I applied for a part time role at a small boutique on the local high street. I didn’t know much about retail back then, but my first day on the shop floor I found that I had a natural spark with customers. It turned out I was a great sales person! I worked hard and I got noticed and eventually became Area Manager of ten stores.
My life had taken a turn. Fast forward 8 years I am married to the love of my life and have a beautiful new baby daughter, a sister for my clever, handsome son. And so I wanted to pass the power of these words on to all the women, to the Sisters. I took up my pen and drew and sketched and refined, and created the Synergy Necklace of which I am so very proud.
Back in the stores my absolute favourite thing to sell was jewellery. I used to look into the jewellery cabinets and try to guess who all those pieces would eventually belong to. I loved thinking that every piece of jewellery already had an owner and was just waiting to be picked up.
I still believe this now. I am so excited to launch the Synergy Necklace. This beautiful piece of jewellery that someday will belong to someone special.. and maybe that person is YOU!
