By day I work with organizations to transform toxic workplaces into spaces of productivity and inclusion. But if I'm being honest, podcasting is my true love.

The Black Girl Burnout Podcast was born out of conversations with the black women I love and their struggles with burnout in all areas of their life (at home with family, in their career, against racism and sexism, unfulfilling friendships, and disappointing romantic partnerships). 

The podcast was created to provide a safe space to heal from burnout, to let go of historical and cultural myths that perpetuate struggle and instead opt-into our cultural legacy of joy, abundance and community.

Today’s episode is all about opting out of lies. Now, lies happen every day, all around us. And if we’re being honest, we’re probably have told a few. But, today we’re not going to focus on the lies that get told to us and the lies we may tell to others. That’s coming up in future podcasts. Today, I’m going to talk about the lies that we tell ourselves.

Opt-Out of Lies

Today I want to talk about how to opt-out of drama. Every time I think about drama, I think about Mary J. Blige’s song “No More Drama”. I picture Mary J. and I think about all that she has endured and overcome along her journey. So in this episode, we are going to talk about ways to make your life drama free.

Opt-Out of Drama

Do you struggle with forgiveness? I feel like that’s a loaded and complicated question. I think that a lot of people may say, No, I forgive everyone. However, when you then dig a little deeper underneath the surface, those feelings are often not sincere or true. If you struggle with being able to forgive, full-heartedly, this episode is for you.

Opt-Into Forgiveness

Today we are going to talk about opting out of hard work. Specifically, we are going to talk about what I mean when I say “hard work”. We are also going to cover why some types of hard work can be considered toxic. Our goal is to align with doing things that in a manner that flow and bring ease into your daily life.
