Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess, my name is Cathy.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. :-))

August 2017 - We moved back to Colorado!! So happy to be back in my home state and to be near family again.

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.

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.

    A person's most useful asset is not a head full of knowledge,
    but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen and a hand willing to help others.

    And no matter what separates your battles from hers, his battles from theirs, we're ALL human.
    Be kind to one another. ❣

    emoticon Leave Yourself Reminders emoticon

    Leave yourself little motivators around your home. Use sticky notes to write down your goals, whys, and rewards, and leave them strategically around your living space. Make sure to leave them in places where you will see them, and where they’ll be useful. For example, place one on the fridge, the cupboard and near your workout clothes, or workout mat. Leaving yourself these self-motivators will keep you moving toward your goals. Another way to leave yourself reminders is to set calendar reminders on your phone. Set reminders around meal and workout times to make sure that you eat healthily and finish your workout. Literal reminders are an excellent way to make sure you don’t end your journey early.
