In Recovery. Im a Fighter.
"inside every athlete is that one demon, hidden down in the back of your mind that screams at you not to finish the piece. it tells you you’re not good enough, this hurts, lets go home and watch more tv. in a crew it is easier to squash that demon, to beat it down and use those around you to push yourself further. whilst not easy to do having team mates makes fighting your demon manageable. It is the single sculler who has the real fight, or the athlete who has decided that the only way they will improve is by training themselves outside of the programme. those who train alone truly come to know their demons, “whos going to notice if you dont finish this piece”, “what difference is that extra stroke/rep/minute going to really make.” every stroke the demon screams at you and every stroke is a fight to push him further down. champions are those who learn to break their demons because come race day when that third 500 starts to scream and for everyone else the thoughts are getting louder and louder but a champion already knows how to beat that voice, they have spent their summers beating that little voice into submission in the back of their minds and when everyone else starts to hurt they are able to sit up tall and give that little bit extra. other rowers are easy to conquer, its our own heads we have to work at"(via pleasedontfeedthelightweights)

This is me, my name is Kelli and I’m 17-years-old, battling cancer for the third time. I have less than a year to live and the only thing I want to do more than anything before I die is meet Ellen. She’s my sunshine. She’s the reason I wake up everyday and I watch her show every morning. She just radiates so much joy and happiness and she gives me hope. It’s really my dream to be able to meet her. Unfortunately, due to a long waiting list, the Wish Foundation told me I probably wouldn’t be able to meet her within my short timeline. But I see miracles happen all the time.. therefore I won’t give up on my dream. I thought that maybe if this gets enough attention, someone from the Ellen Show would come across it, or maybe even Ellen herself will know of me and my wish to meet her. Please, help me make my wish come true.
