A Peacock-a-mamie Story!

 

 

 

There was once a crow who did not like his pitch-black feathers. At a young age, he became entranced by the vibrant, multi-colored peacocks who lived in the next village. Other crows told him, "You are beautiful as you are." He thought they were dull and let them know.

 

 

 

 

He preferred spending time watching the peacocks strut and shimmy, displaying their utter brilliance. As some of their feathers fell to the ground, he would collect them. When he had enough feathers, he stuck them in his tail feathers plus on top of his head.

 

 

 

 

 Thinking, "Now I am as beautiful as a peacock." Later, he joined all the peacocks by putting on a show meant to impress, instead, they poked fun, outing him. They were insulted he would mock them that way. Utterly deflated, he left for home to live among the crows.

 

 

 

 

Upon returning home, no one wanted to be in his company after all the insults the crow hurled at them time and again, so he sat alone. The other crows said, "It's foolish to try and be what you're not. Learn to love the feathers you've got!" A tough lesson on being content with oneself.

 

 

 

The greatest gift given is practicing unconditional self acceptance and tapping into that uniqueness. This is a case where imitation was not the sincerest form of flattery. True happiness is not found through the approval of others but through one's own inner discovery.

 

 

Trying to be someone else is pure cockamamie! Or in this case, Peacock-a-mamie!

Good point. Self acceptance is so important and yet not practiced enough.

What a delightful lesson. I think it's time for you to write a charming little book filled with all of these little lessons in life. I'd buy it for my grands.
