“You are not your disorder or diagnosis.” These are powerful, healing words. Too many of people get labeled with a mental illness and feel like it defines them. But it doesn’t need to be that way. Look deeper within yourself and find the bouquet of beauty that is the real you.

This design reminds us to take time to think about what we truly are on the inside and not what others think they see on the outside.  Focus on your accomplishments and your strengths, then spread your wings and fly like the colorful butterfly in this design.

The inspiration for this design, by artist Jill Henrichsen, came from her desire to create a way to send the message about the importance of  loving ourselves from within.  Jill feels we are the only ones who can make ourselves bloom.
