International Toot Your Flute Day is an interesting holiday that is not about music at all. You may not have known about it until today, but October 4 is the perfect day for showing off and self-promotion. Its purpose is to tell people about achievements and successes and to drop the shyness and join in!
The origin of International Toot Your Flute Day is unknown, but its purpose is quite clear: people often do not give themselves enough attention for their successes and victories. On ordinary weekdays, we may tend to stay silent about our achievements, but on International Toot Your Flute Day we can tell the world just how good we are!
The Bible speaks of the importance of humility. The Lord shows favor to humble people, and in today’s world it can be difficult to remain humble. We can often see injustice when our efforts go unnoticed while others are noticed, but the Bible reminds us that God sees the efforts of everyone and cares.
Believe it or not, bragging can actually be good for mental health. In moderate amounts, it can help increase self-esteem and even act as a magic pill in times of crisis. While it may have been discouraged in childhood, if we completely abandon it, we lose out on its positive qualities. Even the most pessimistic of us can find the light when we talk about our merits!
