Why Whiner’s Day?
Rev. Kevin Zaborney founded the day by watching many people who whine constantly about what they don’t have. He also created the National Hugging Day as everyone is just whining about their problems and fewer are those that give a hug and comfort you!
Whining is common in our day to day life. Our life is not perfect so there’s going to be whining until the end of the world. We whine or see others whining when certain things or situations are not enjoyable. Whining is as old as mankind itself. It can also be traced back to the exodus of Israelites from Egypt. Where they whined about food and water to God himself! Well God answers by sending Manna from the heavens and water from a rock but that seems to be a topic for another day.
Whining is not all bad. You are human and you need to let out the troubling matters. Everyone needs someone who can listen to how bad their day was or whose mistake it was. But too much whining is not healthy either. It could strain relationships with loved ones and at the workplace too. So this day gives you the liberty to whine about the task you need to complete, that book you need to finish, the health issues in the family, the limited finances, that dream job you missed, and much more.
After you are done whining today, it’s time to be thankful for all the blessings you have. The very reason you are alive is one of the best reasons to be thankful for. If you have a family that loves you, no matter what, you have the potential to achieve greater things! You have to be thankful again because not everyone sees a new day, many are battling for life and the pain of those who have lost their loved ones, people who struggle for one square meal, and many without good clothes and shelter.
So today whine all you want! Tomorrow pack all your winnings and focus on all the little and big blessings you have!
