Meant To Be Great
Sixx A.M. is a band formed by Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue (an 80's metal band). I'm not recommending these bands or their songs, but I need to share the lyrics to one in particular called 'Accidents Can Happen'. Nikki wrote this song after recovering from very long battle with his addiction to heroin, other drugs, and alcohol.
When I heard these lyrics, they really spoke to me. They're a great reminder for discouraging moments during my journey with weight loss and I wanted to share them with you!
"Accidents Can Happen"
Nikki Sixx - Sixx A.M.
Don't give up, it takes a while
I have seen this look before
And it's alright
You're not alone
If you don't love this anymore
I hear that you've slipped again
I'm here 'cause I know you'll need a friend
And you know that accidents can happen
And it's okay
We all fall off the wagon sometimes
It's not your whole life
It's only one day
You haven't thrown everything away
Take some time and learn to breathe
And remember what it means
To feel alive
And to believe
Something more than what you see
I know there's a price for this
But some things in life you must resist...
You really are meant to be great! Close your eyes and tell yourself until you believe it. Write it down, using your name... "____, you are meant to be great!" Post it at work and on your fridge. Make a reminder on your phone and set an alarm to go off three times a day (think of times you might need it most like first thing in the morning, mid-afternoon snooze time, and before dinner). Ask a friend to remind you. Ask ME to remind you. Read this post over and over again... whatever you need to do to remember that YOU ARE MEANT TO BE GREAT! And because you are meant to be great, you can do this. You will overcome. Believe it!
