My Gal Friday - Tina from (Florida) Girl with a new life

    Happy Friday everyone!  Welcome to another edition of My Gal Friday!  Today's gal is Tina of (Florida) Girl with a new life.  Tina is a former party gal turned wife and writer.  Read on to learn more about this domestic diva!
    What do you think is your best feature and why?
    My eyes because they remind me of my mother.
    What do you think is your best (non physical) trait and why?
    My courage. It has taken me everywhere.
    What (non physical) traits do you admire in others? 
    Honesty and kindness are my two favorite qualities.
    What three words would you use to describe yourself? 
    Dreamer. Wife. Writer.
    Is there anything about yourself that at one time bothered you but now you love? 
    Growing up with a Caucasian Dad and an Asian Mom was difficult for me when I was young because no one group ever really identified with my looks. Now I love being different. Blending in is overrated.
    If you could give kids a piece of advice about having a positive self image, what would it be?
    Love yourself first and everyone else will follow.
    What do you wish you hadn't worried about when you were younger?  What would you tell yourself if you could go back? 
    I wish I had never worried about being pretty enough. These days I don't give the world permission to define my self worth. Only I can do that.
    What do you see when you look in the mirror?
    I see all of my dreams for my past, present and future.
    Anything else you would like to share about positive body image/inner beauty?
    A happy woman is a beautiful one.  
       Well said Tina!  Thank you so much for participating!

  8. WOW... you are amazing Tina. I think we are all amazing, wonderful and capable women... And you said it well... A happy woman is a beautiful woman... I can understand when you say blending in just so overrated. It is funny that when we are kids, we just want to be like everyone else and now, when we have grown up, being different is what we look for...
