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 of 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….
