Scotland The Brave

Why we love it

We’re getting muckle Scotland vibes with this seal. A lion rampant, the St Andrew’s cross (and a padlock to indicate the shackling of the country to the UK perhaps?).

But it’s all arch with this one.

The arch denotes strength. An inverted catenary curve that redirects the vertical force of gravity.

Arches are used to represent victory. In mythology they’re seen as the gateway between time and space, through which we enter another world.

Symbolic of the expansiveness of the sky, arches are believed to elevate the mind, allowing our ideas to soar. Passing through an arch signifies an act of rebirth – a chance to leave behind the old and embrace the new.

Wear this as a talisman of renewal. A reminder to stay agile. Keep moving. To allow change to happen.

Be proactive. You’re unlikely to meet a new partner sitting on your sofa (unless you’re in the market for a window cleaner); your perfect job isn’t going to take out a want ad or come looking for you; that book won’t write itself (though give AI a little more time and it might).

Break free from those proverbial padlocks; all that negative self talk that tells you you’re not good enough, funny enough, intelligent enough.

You are enough. More than enough.

Slough off that dead skin, shake the dust from your feet, [insert any other appropriate idiom].

Live your life. On your terms. Stat.

Flown away home.
