What is NWW?
No Whining Wednesdays is something coined by Iyanla Vanzant that I decided to adopt into this blog. It means that for the entire day today you CANNOT do the following:
Here are some definitions:
To Whine – give or make a long, high-pitched complaining cry or sound; to grumble, murmur or complain in a feeble way.
To Complain – express dissatisfaction or annoyance about a state of affairs or an event; state that one is suffering from; state of grievance.
To Criticize – indicate the faults of (someone or something) in a disapproving way; to condemn, attack, discourage.
Okay, now that we all know what whining, complaining, and criticizing is, there is only one rule: DON’T DO ANY OF THIS TODAY.
Wait! What if I start whining!?
- Practice Gratitude (Think about / Count your blessings)
- Read Scripture
- Listen to your favorite song
- Watch / Listen to an inspiring podcast
- Call a Friend
- Take yourself out
- Clean the house
- Anything productive
