I have been meaning to write about this topic since time immemorial. Because focusing on optimism is really challenging when you have “some negativity” surrounding you. So here goes.

I have learned a few years ago, actually in 2008, about the same time that I started this blog, that if I want to live a joyful and peaceful life, I must BE CONTENTED and BE APPRECIATIVE. Once I became aware of the sense of peace and contentment that came …
Just writing this quick post to express my extreme gratitude to Wayback Machine! I’ve shared last January that I had an issue …
It’s time to thank another friend for extending a helping hand on my wedding day. He’s the person behind my beautiful face (naks! ) on my special day. I am truly grateful to Mark a.k.a. Ma Ke of Colors and Strokes and Kasalan sa Pinas.
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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
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.
