Winning and Whining

63. Winning and Whining Quote

One of my top ten quotes is this one: The difference between a “winner” and a “whiner” is the sound of the “I.” That is an A.A. axiom from the book The Spirituality of Imperfection—Storytelling and the Search for Meaning by Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham.

It reminds me of my July 20 post about sniveling and Eeyore. They’re all in the same kind of box, which I do my best to stay out of. But in that moment where I find myself whining, I think of this quote, and pull myself together (sort of).
