Gratitude and Appreciation from Tim and Jane

Hello everyone! MJ is back – but with a different last name! Since July 4th I’ve been legally known as Mary Jane Cabrera-Nombre. How’s that sound?! Tim and I finally got married last July 4th and I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for coming to our wedding. Our wedding wouldn’t have been complete without the support and love of our family and friends. And words cannot express the joy that we feel remembering that all the important people in our lives shared the beginning of our new life together.

Independence Day!

I received a lot of blessings today! So to celebrate I tweaked a website that’s close to my heart these days. So also I just want to share with you all the wedding website I created for our wedding. Its not finished yet but I’m working on it. I have a blog there too so you might want to check it out.

On Breathing and Visualization

Wow! I can’t believe so many things has happened since my last blog post! Some of them are: I am now a proud college graduate(!), I have travelled to a number of new places like Punta Bulata in Negros Occidental and some out of the way places in Capiz, met lots of new friends, experienced huge career growth, made major decisions in my love life(I’m engaged!), and a lot more!

Truth is, I still have a lot of blog backlogs. But like I said, I will be tackling them all slowly but surely.

For My Workaholic Friends: Leave Your Job at Work

Take control of your life and your time. Your time should not be ruled by the large corporations that you work for. You should have the basic right to live your own lives, on your own time! Create your own inner law – and then follow it.

The Virtues of Assertiveness and Tact

The two virtues of assertiveness and tact complement one another and, when practiced, can make your personal life much easier. Assertiveness means saying what you think and how you feel, and tact means saying these things in a gentle, nonoffensive way. People usually get into more trouble in relationships by not being direct or by being tactless and hurting other people’s feelings.

Wisdom Quotes from Movies

Happy Monday everyone! Let’s start this week right! I found this video, shared by a Facebook friend who is also an optimist like me. This is a compilation of great wisdom lessons from various movies. I’d like to share it with everyone so I’m not just posting the video; I also transcribed it for you all. Enjoy and be enlightened! And let’s make it an awesome life!

Happy Birthday MJ!

Today is my birthday. Yey! Another year added to my joyful, meaningful life! Thank you all for the birthday wishes. It really means a lot to me. So like everyone else on our “special days”, I am getting a lot of love on Facebook: not only from family members, relatives, old friends, new friends, professional contacts but also from other random friends. LOL! So I won’t deny it, it’s actually quite touching, and I totally appreciate it!

Developing the Habit of Being Quiet

Noise. I just don’t like noise. Quiet – this is why I am always thankful that I work at home. Actually it’s one of the major reasons why I love working at home. I calm myself by simply being quiet. Being quiet can be difficult in our stimulation-filled world. Just think of all the noise that surrounds many of us every moment. I used to wake up every work day to the noise of an alarm clock. This was when I worked at that call center.

Live on Less

Yesterday when I got home from my trip to Antique I did a routine check of my site stats, and I was pleasantly surprised on the amount of views gained by my previous blog post: “Track Your Spending.” So I would like to continue sharing the lessons I learned about managing my finances. My fixation for today is how I am learning how to live on less.

Track Your Spending

This is something that I have been doing since last year (2011) and I can say that it has helped me a lot in terms of saving up and knowing where my hard-earned money goes. The first time I began to track my spending it showed me what I thought was important. And it was such a huge eye-opener.
