No Whining Wednesday

The No Whining Wednesday Badge

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:

– Whine
– Complain
– Criticize

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.
