My blog is called Typewriter Girl.
When I was little, I had a typewriter and, having an active imagination, I would type stories of adventures and escape. I must have typed hundreds of stories. Many years later, and being older, I had a desire to capture what was happening in my life instead of just collecting photos in my mobile phone gallery, never to be looked at again. And so, I returned to typing, this time on a laptop, to start my personal blog.
My blog is about sharing little snippets of my life and about the things I love and which inspire me. From places I visit, to my beloved dog Boris, to the beauty in nature I see around me, I share my thoughts and photographs on my blog and hope that in some small way they might inspire others too.

Well, essentially I wanted my blog to represent a number of things:
1.Be a conduit for debates on contemporary issues.
2.A means of connecting with fellow creatives
3.A library of all my shorts stories, film reviews and think pieces etc.
4.Finally, and most importantly, a form of self-expression. My mind is constantly overflowing with thoughts and ideas, and I felt that creating a blog was the best way of getting them all out before I exploded.
A Journey in My World Blog
My blog is about how to begin a journey of self-discovery.
First of all, let me to introduce myself. I’m Dina Al-Mahdy; a freelance English editor, translator and writer at numerous publishing houses and online journals. I started writing and reading at a very young age, which helped me muse at the world through a lens steeped in mindfulness, adventure and tenderness. My greatest loves are art, books, literature, nature, writing, photography, translation, traveling and music. I’ve always been in a serious relationship with words, and have had a deep yearning to discover many of the answers that seem to have been hidden or forgotten in today’s world.
Being a member the International Positive Psychology Association, I’ve come to know the power of words. Words are important. They can lift us up or break us down, and they can touch our hearts. Our lives are made up of words, and when those words aren’t spoken, they leave a terrible emptiness in their wake. Words are powerful. When we withhold them, we’re denying their power and disempowering those we leave in the wreckage of those unspoken words. Simply put, we free ourselves and each other when we find the courage to speak our truth and honor our own feelings. That’s exactly why I started blogging!
In January 2018, I started my blog A Journey in My World, where I share my thoughts and hope to inspire as many people as possible through them. A Journey in My World is brimming with articles, poems and short stories in both English and Arabic, along with my photography, all of which are about energy healing, relationships, well-being, meditation, mindfulness and peacefulness, and how to bring their great benefits to our everyday life.
So I welcome everyone to have a wonderful reading and to enjoy the soulful photography, writing and music….
