Alicia thinks that the most basic level of being creative is making something out of nothing. Almost everyone has the capacity to do this as humans are a highly creative species.
A more advanced form of being creative, or what distinguishes creative talent, is the ability to transform something dull, or even normal, into something inspiring: discovering the potential and exposing the good. This is what Alicia strives for.
For example, Alicia had a side table next to her sofa. It was a regular brown, wooden table. It lacked intensity, emotion and charm; it was sad to look at.
So Alicia and I decided to transform it into a table that would inspire us and make us happy. Here is our before and after presentation:
Alicia thinks that the world would be a better place if people dedicated more time into making things pretty. Of course Alicia does not advocate ruthlessness and irresponsible behaviour when striving for beauty. If you can use a bit of recycled paper in order to produce something inspiring, it can boost the happiness quota of the world in more than one way.
Alicia says that to feel truly inspired is rare, but when it happens it can change your life forever. Alicia finds this to be a really exciting notion, as inspiration is the force behind change and ultimately progression.
