Letting Go of “What Was” to Welcome What’s Now and What’s Next
We live in a world where so much has changed. Lamenting over how things used to be prevents us from seeing all the new gifts unfolding today. Some of us may be able to embrace change more easily than others, but to some degree, we are all comparing life today with how it was in the past. And unfortunately, it’s likely that we are remembering what was good about yesterday, compared to what is challenging about today. Our ability to go with the flow, personally and professional, affects our work and the impact we have on our relationships (co-workers, family, friends, etcetera).
In this session, participants will:
- Learn to quickly recognize and confront discouraging thoughts.
- Identify a more helpful way to view change personally and professionally.
- Discover how to use mindfulness to become an ambassador of gratitude
Ideal audience: corporate wellness, entrepreneurs, education, recovery/disability, women’s events, life transition (job loss, divorce, grief)
Finding the Gift: Ordinary Life, Extraordinary Perspective™
Be encouraged and inspired as Angela shares with refreshing authenticity about the life lessons that put her on the path of personal healing and growth. Feel renewed as your eyes are opened to discovering what is already wonderful inside us and around us. Angela’s journey resulted in Finding the Gift: Daily Meditations for Mindfulness, her handbook for life. Using metaphors from the most unlikely places, Angela will challenge your group to transition from merely surviving, to thriving.
Finding the Gift: Unwrapping Real Beauty
Delivered with humor and vulnerability, Angela uses stories from her past as a model and eating disorder survivor to reveal the secrets of true beauty—within ourselves and our ability to appreciate beauty in others. Audiences will learn how to nurture their own inner beauty, while balancing societal pressures to focus more on the external wrappings rather than the gift itself. Using an on-stage wardrobe change, Angela demonstrates our innate tendency to size other women up by their external appearance and implores us to stop being our own worst enemies.
*This keynote can stand alone or is paired perfectly with a day or night of indulgent pampering such as makeup and hair stations, photo shoots, ten-minute massages, guided meditations, mindfulness techniques, and more!

Even before her injury, she felt trapped in her career but afraid to do anything about it. Learn how to rise above societal norms and the pesky mental chatter that persuades you to stay in your predictable comfy box. What? Don’t know what your dreams even are? Not to worry, they may be buried, but you will learn how to excavate them. You can re-create your life too. It’s never too late to explore new ways to be fulfilled and to find the courage to birth new dreams!
