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.
