“I think for you to be able to feel comfortable with yourself is when you’ve accepted yourself.”
Meet the Adelina behind "Adelina". Read on to get to know Adelina better and how she inspired one of our Eid Girl.
Hi. Can you share a little bit about yourself?
My name is Adelina Mahiyuddin. I’m 33-years-old. I’m single. I’m from Malaysia but I’ve been away for the last 10 years. Now that I’m back, I run a yoga studio called Hot Yo Studio. I like to workout, that’s why I started the business about 3 years ago. I’ve got two extremes when it comes to my favourite food. I do enjoy simple, clean food. I like Japanese cuisine and then I’ve got my occasional Mamak as well.
How would your best friend describe you in 3 words?
That I see the good things in life, I learn to enjoy life like a happy-go-lucky person and that I’m smiley :)
What does it mean to be comfortable in your own skin?
I think for you to be able to feel comfortable with yourself is when you’ve accepted yourself. You got to know yourself. Dig deep, find out what are your strengths and your flaws and make peace with them. Only then can you truly shine.
What makes you feel confident?
For me personally, I think I feel the most confident when I’m having fun. If it’s something that I enjoy doing, I know that I’m good at, I know what to expect then obviously that comes naturally and very easy for me, so it makes me feel confident.
What should a girl do to feel confident in her own skin?
I think knowing yourself on a deeper level helps. For example, if you know that you’re good at certain things then you can work on that to make it even better or work on your weaknesses or turn your weaknesses into your strengths somehow. But then for you to feel confident is for you to feel at ease with whatever you’re doing. Because I think that really shines and people can really feel your energy.
If you could share a message to all the everyday girls out there, what would it be?
My advice to all the everyday girls out there is to remember that you only get to live once so make it count. Live your dreams. Be adventures. Be daring. Don’t be afraid to be different and most importantly, be extraordinary.
I would also like to say that if you want to explore more about yourself, maybe take some time or a break for you to just sit down by yourself and reflect on who you are as a person, where you want to go, what you want to do. Maybe that will help your thoughts and your intention to shape the path of your life.
