I am a very optimistic person, which explains why I am cheerful and full of energy. I always look at the brighter side of life. I like meeting new people who shares my zest for life. I am a very compassionate person, having worked with various non-profit organizations that uplift the plight of the less fortunate sector of our society. I can modestly say that I have been a change agent, who made a difference in the lives of people who needed social, physical, emotional guidance and assistance. I am an active member of a Filipino/American Association here in Jacksonville doing volunteer/civic work. I am also creative, enjoy varied activities such as DIY projects, arts and crafts, home improvements, gardening ( I have a green thumb, I love to grow vegetables, herbs, fruit trees, and ornamental indoor/outdoor plants.) I like to join courses, workshops, groups and activities that interest me which includes Photography, interior and fashion design, Gemology (gemstones and crystals), creative writing, and Traditional Medicine. I love to travel, exploring new places, visiting historic sites and museums, festivals, flea markets, weekend outings, road trips,camping, fishing, dining and enjoying good food (I'm a great cook!), sewing, watching movies at home, reading books/magazines. I live by the Golden Rule and believe in the Universal Law of Karma - anything that comes around, goes around, and that whatever you sow, you will reap. For me, age is just a number, as I continue to be active, engaging in activities related to my varied interest and personal growth. I believe that education facilitates learning which is a continuous process to acquire knowledge, skills, values, beliefs and habits. I lead a healthy lifestyle, never smoked or drink alcohol. I opt for fruit juices and a sip of red wine when dining out or in social gatherings.I occasionally attend parties to meet family and friends but also enjoy quiet time/nights at home. I stay in shape by doing regular exercise and eating a balance diet. I am multi-talented (love to sing, dance and play the piano) and have special skills and abilities. I also love the simple things in life.... looking at the rainbow after it rains, stargazing on a clear night, beautiful landscapes, flowers and butterflies....they are a thing of beauty and a joy forever, sitting under a tree near a pond, running streams, watching the sunrise/sunset and listening to music that sets the mood and soothes the heart. I am a good homemaker. I keep my home well organized, clean and sweet-smelling. I also enjoy long walks on the beach, in the woods or just around the neighborhood. I believe that in order to be happy in life you need something to do, someone to love and something to hope for. I also believe that if something is meant to be, it will happen through God's grace...in the right time, with the right person and for the best reason. I am both outgoing and reflective. I believe it is a good balance.I am down to earth, happy/cheerful everyday of my life, as I am at peace with myself and the world. I derive pleasure from putting a smile upon other people’s faces. I am very compassionate and this allows me to contribute in making the world a better place. I am confident and comfortable with myself, so I can give freely to others. I believe that you can’t give what you don’t have. I have a deep and strong faith in God and a solid set of values. I am family oriented, faithful, kind and caring, devoted, loyal, sincere,very affectionate and passionate in everything I do. I am open, direct and honest without being blunt or rude. I don’t hide what I think and feel. Faithfulness and honesty is a big factor for me.
