Be Humble Day
Be Humble Day is observed next on Thursday, February 22nd, 2024 (85 days from today).
Be Humble Day is celebrated on February 22 every year. Humility is a way of showing humility and feeling less proud of yourself. From an early age, those around me taught and emphasized the importance of practicing and applying humility in life. True humility is not about thinking less about yourself, but about how you feel less about yourself. Humble people are those who don't ask too much of themselves and will eventually succeed. Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.
History of Be Humble Day
Humility may be the hardest of all the virtues to actually achieve. There seems to be a paradox in that claiming to be modest can be an act of pride. Some people may be proud of their modest or something like that. Either way, Be Humble Day is focused on condescending.
No bragging is allowed on Be Humble Day. Choosing not to brag about your successes and abilities can be much more difficult than one might predict, as the culture around us is so often centered on ourselves and the successes that an individual might have achieved.
Throughout the ages, philosophers as well as ordinary Joe have pondered humility and what it means to be truly humble. That's a difficult question to answer, and the final answer may never come out in full. But perhaps finding humility is more important than gaining it.
The exact origin and founder of Be Humble Day are unknown at this time. But it's an inspiring day to take humility seriously and practice it for a lifetime. Humble people do not brag, when they become famous, their actions and background will speak for themselves. It's a day to live a simple life, away from labels, pretentious people and unusual experiences.
