Our Peek Inside… series takes a look inside people’s personal journals to celebrate their imaginations and inspire others.
This month we’re taking a look at Alaa Heikal’s friendship-inspired journals:
This is my very first journal which a really dear friend got me on my birthday. The thing that connects us is that both of us can see happiness in really simple things, so I decided to dedicate the journal to write happy things. These are things that happen everyday: observations, lyrics, moments, appreciation of people in my life and some motivational things I write to myself.
My goal from this journal is that it will be a place where I can go when I’m feeling down, like a happiness boost.
In the journal you’ll also find drawings which my best friends have done for me, things that always remind me of them.
My inspirations: my best friends, people who are really close to me and people exploding with positive energy. I’m also an amateur photographer and writer, and I love vintage everything!
As an intro to the journal I’ve written (translated from Arabic): “This journal has an overdose of happiness. If you are a negative person and you’re okay with that, then please leave it anywhere.”
