I came upon
my name in a somewhat interesting, yet ironic way. A couple of
my friends took it upon themselves to decide that I was a bit
stuck up and overly concerned about my looks. As a joke, they
came up with the name "Strutting Peacock."
didn't mind the joke, as I'm a fun loving person myself. I thought
it was neat and actually pretty interesting. Then,when I started
digging for information on peacocks, I found much more than I
could have bargained for. (for more information, look at the link
"symbology" to the left)
Breeze, decided to gift me with the name Strutting Peacock (for
real, this time) as it is a good name. The name is actually an
honorable one, and I am very flattered and honored to be named
for such a magnificent animal.
I decided to use the name as a reminder to myself to be humble,
but Breeze reminded me that I -am- a proud person. I'm proud of
who I am, what I am, and how I carry myself in my daily life.
That is not a disgrace, nor is it bragging to be proud of yourself
if it is done in an humble way.
I thank those
who took part in creating my name (though it was in jest) and
moreso, I thank the Creator for all my friends and family . .
. my brothers and sisters of the four-legged, winged, swimming
and crawling all included.
