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.

Summer 5% Challenge Commitment
Exercise:

Six Terrific Truths about Time
First: Nobody can manage time. But you can manage those things that take up your time.

Second: Time is expensive. As a matter of fact, 80% of our day is spent on those things or those people that only bring us 2% of our results.

Third: Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.

Fourth: Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount of time..Pauper or King. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.

Fifth: Time is irreplaceable. We never make-up back time once it is gone.

Sixth: Time is a priority. You have enough time for anything in the world, so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.

Remember: Time is seconds; seconds are minutes; minutes are hours; hours are days; days are years and years are your lifetime!

When it rains....
look for rainbows...
When It's Dark...
look for stars...

A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking....
Because the bird's trust is not on the branch....
but on it's own wings...
Always believe in yourself...

It's better to look back on life and say...
"I can't believe I did that"...
than to look back and say....
"I wish I did that"...
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Before every workout...
is a point between your mind and an excuse...
Win it... And Gooo Goo Go... Go ... Go...

They say the people who exhibit the most kindness
have experienced a lot of pain.
The ones who act like they don't need love
are the ones who need it more.
The ones who take care of everyone else
need care the most.
And the people who smile
may be the ones who cry when nobody is around.

emoticon Hoping your Monday was a happy one. Today's quote for you by Confucius:

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.”

So, here's hoping you have a glorious week filled with rising above whatever challenges the week may bring you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
