One step and one day at a time

Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado. We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri. We don't have any children other than our cockatiels that we call our feathered puppies. :-))

My husband and I make video games for a living from our home. We work well together and love that we get along so ...
Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado. We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri. We don't have any children other than our cockatiels that we call our feathered puppies. :-))

My husband and I make video games for a living from our home. We work well together and love that we get along so well that we can stand to be with each other 24/7. lol

Life has dealt me plenty of punches starting with my first surgery at the age of 5. At 9 I had a brain tumor removed that damaged my right optic nerve and destroyed my pituitary gland. As a result I'm legally blind in my right eye and have to take medicines for the rest of my life to make my body function normally. I've had multiple surgeries and broken bones over the years since then but I will not let anything stop me from becoming a better me physically and mentally.

I'm eating according the Fast Metabolism Diet. It's been a life saver for me. I finally found an eating plan that is helping me to shed unwanted pounds of fat from my body. Thanks to my virtual Spark Mom, FLORIDASUN, for blogging about how much success she had eating according to the Fast Metabolism Diet! If she had never blogged about her success I would have never tried it.

If you're helping someone and expecting something in return, you're doing business not kindness.
~~~Jonathan Kitavi~~~
NOT everyone will appreciate what you do for them...YOU have to figure out who's worth your kindness AND who's just taking advantage....
~~~Unknown
Always be sure to show compassion and kindness to strangers..for you never know when you may be in the company of an angel...angels don't always have wings.
~~~Nishan Panwar~~~
Being kind to someone, only to look kind to others, defeats the purpose of being kind.

emoticon Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again
