A Glass Half Full

Glass half full

“Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If someone puts you down or criticises you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.”

Leah LaBelle

We’ve all been asked the question: when a glass is filled halfway with water, is it half full, or half empty? What people forget to mention, is how to make the glass seem half full all the time, even when we’re feeling painfully pessimistic.

There are times when life decides to throw problems in our faces, and it can be almost impossible to try and see the light at the end of the tunnel. Whether you’re having a bad day, bad week, bad month, or even a bad year, it’s important to learn how to train your mind to focus on the positives. Despite how dire a situation may seem, it’s inevitable that there is always something good nearby.

You never know when an opportunity may present itself, or when something amazing is lurking round the corner; that’s what you need to keep in mind when times are hard. After all, bigger and better things are born from the remnants of our troubles.

Here at Synergy Jewellery, this couldn’t be closer to the truth. Our founder, Clover Norton, was inspired to set up her own business after going through a tough time. Whilst it would’ve been easy to bask in self-pity and sit around waiting for things to get better, she turned misfortune into a message.

In order to keep that glass half full, Clover knew she had to make a change. So, she posted special words around her house, little words with wonderful meanings, so that whenever she passed them, she could stop to read them and remember the beautiful things that life has to offer. By doing this, she kept her spirits high and word by word, began to train herself into always seeing the bright side of a situation.

Of course, Clover knew she needed to help others through their own struggles. But how? With a knack for business and experience in the fashion industry, there was only one real option: Jewellery. This was when the words and meanings plastered around her house came into mind and she spotted an opportunity. She knew that by designing jewellery with special words engraved on them, she could one by one empower and inspire women across the country.

Synergy Jewellery offers a range of necklaces, bracelets and rings with individual meanings behind each piece. By wearing a piece of our jewellery, you carry around a word that you can look at throughout the day, whenever you need a boost of positivity or a new perspective. So no matter what life throws at you, your glass will always be half full.

Let’s Celebrate Words this Christmas

Our ability to communicate with words, set us apart from all other life forms on Earth. Isn’t that a beautiful thing?

Words can be the beginning of something and they can be the end of something. Words can mark a place in time and provoke feelings that can be etched in our memories forever.

Words form a large part of every event in our lives: With words, we love, we lust and we laugh. With words we teach others and pass down our wisdom. With words we show our anger, resolve conflict and clarify confusion.

Words in essence, may only be a sequence of letters, but they can be a powerful reminder of what is important to us. By saying or writing them down they can help us visualize and focus on that thought, object or emotion. Remember to use your words discerningly and think before you act. What you say can become part of your being and trigger the way you feel.

The words inscribed on your Synergy Jewellery have been carefully chosen and are a reminder of the qualities that help us stay content, peaceful and happy. Your Synergy Necklace can help you stay focused on being a more positive, loving and happy person, you will be rewarded. Every gesture of kindness radiates light, fights darkness and brings goodness into our lives.

Why these words

I would place these five words throughout five different points of my home and by the time I was ready to leave the house, I would feel better.

Love by my bedside table to remind me of the Love I already had, my son.

Belief on the bathroom mirror, Belief in a better future.

Courage on the fridge – be brave, come on you can do this!

Gratitude in the living room – at least I have a roof over my head and shoes on my feet

and

Happiness, on the inside of the front door – smile big, fake it until you make it – as I walked out of the door…!

Visualising these five words helped me take little steps to grow in confidence and get stronger every day.

I hope that by designing this necklace and sharing this story I can help other women. Everyone can use these tools.

These five humble words are engraved for you in sterling silver. Wear them on your Synergy Necklace and may they be a visual reminder to help you feel good and positive, every day.

Below is a poem I wrote during this time.

Cross Roads

In the beginning, what could I see?
I saw the light, drift away with might.
Was that the feeling of inner peace?
First given to us, but seems to cease.

If I was to look into myself and see
The sweet tunes of my melody
I’d look for answers of my soul
To understand my flight for whole

The arrows are pointing to a place of light
To fulfill my emptiness of what’s right
This pain is an illusion, but felt so deep
Where is the remedy of being able to sleep?

I’m tired of trying, but haven’t tried enough
Who holds the key to building me up!
The key is hidden deep down inside
If I reach to find it, I’ll be on my ride
A ride to freedom, to the unknown
I stand up, and I’m ready to Go!
