You know the saying “the last straw that broke the back of the camel”? Doesn’t it make you super sad? Here’s my version of the idea. Let’s start focusing on all the positive things and good outcomes we can achieve. I chose passion butterflies to carry the healing camel because one needs devotion and a strong spirit (butterflies are symbols of the soul in many cultures) to learn self-love. The "needle in the haystack" metaphor intended to raise awareness of the hardships coming along the way towards growth and radical acceptance.
