Found Motivation In the Craziest Place!

Sunday, April 28, 2013


Yep, you read that correctly......

I follow a lot of the WWE super stars (I'm a huge John Cena fan as if you couldn't tell). Well, I started following Brodus Clay back around Wrestlemania time. He's been posting about 365 days to redemption because he didn't get to have his match at Wrestlemania.

He asked his fans on Friday to post about their goals either through pictures, videos, or just responding to his Tweet. So, I did just that. I wasn't expecting what I found a few hours later!!

He had done 3 things:

1. Followed me on Twitter emoticon
2. Retweeted my post

For those of you who don't know my husband and daughter passed away 5 years ago. Friday was what would of been my husband's 30 birthday. Its been a really rough week. By Brodus Clay doing what he did he literally turned my mood around 360 degrees. You couldn't wipe the smile off my face.

Oh, but it gets better......

Saturday, I tweeted him and told him what I was doing for my workout that day. He retweeted that

Then today WWE is coming back from a European tour and he posted that he was back in the USA. I responded to it and well, just read....

Needless to say I've found my second wind and I'm working out every day now. It may not seem like a big deal to some but to me its huge. I mean its one thing for me to tell my goals and such to my friends and family and they naturally support me. But to have one of my favourite wrestlers rooting for me? Its emoticon

For those of you who have no idea who Brodus Clay is check out his entrance for Monday Night Raw!

    No way!! That is AWESOME!!! Total motivation - right?!

On a side note - and I am sure I told you this before - but I am TOTALLY a wrestling fan...since I was a kid....and people always thought I was nuts...I am SO glad I found someone else (who is an adult! Ha ha!) who likes it as much (probably more!) than I do! :-)

    I shared the link to this blog on Twitter and "tagged" him in it. He retweeted it and posted the link to the blog on is Twitter. So, it actually shows up on his Twitter page twice.
