AUGGUST 8, 2023 | EPISODE 80

What if the key to personal growth is not to shy away from negative emotions but to embrace them? This intriguing idea is at the heart of our conversation with Angela, a self-proclaimed feeling advocate and author of the transformative book, “Traveling Light.” Angela shares her eye-opening journey of writing her book, where she discovered the profound influence of acknowledging and expressing gratitude for uncomfortable feelings. More than just a path to empathy, this fresh perspective challenges the norm of positive thinking and reveals how confronting our inner critics can lead to exciting breakthroughs.

Imagine a world where we don’t rely on past experiences to shape our perception. Angela urges us to remove our metaphorical glasses and see life from a fresh viewpoint. She shares her mantra “Be Freaking Awesome” and how it powered her advocacy for understanding our emotions. In the realm of the working world, Angela advocates for self-trust and emphasizes the necessity to validate our feelings. She explains how acceptance, rather than control, is instrumental in our growth and helps navigate through our personal forests of fear.

Angela also gives us a glimpse into her vibrant launch team and the upcoming events. She underscores how her book “Traveling Light” has paved the way for her own evolution, reinforcing the significance of acceptance in life’s journey.
