    I Am Gifted. I Am From a Gifted People (w/ Brittany Janay)

    I Am Gifted. I Am From a Gifted People (w/ Brittany Janay)

    Brittany Janay kicks of this week with a loving reminder that we are a gifted people. We have inherited gifts that our people and world need. She reads a passage from a book she has referenced throughout this season on "The Black Helping Tradition," and shares more on the work of Black scholars, ancestors Alexander Crummel & W.E.B. DuBois. In a world that often times pathologizes Blackness, we must be intentional about centering Black joy, Black strength, Black gifts. Our history and lineage is rich ... our liberation requires us to REMEMBER.

    I Embrace the Power in the Pause (w/ Brittany Janay)

    I Embrace the Power in the Pause (w/ Brittany Janay)

    Brittany Janay reminds us of the beauty and power that exists in "the pause." In a culture of white urgency, we often carry this burden and expectation to immediately respond, react, and DO...without attention to our bodies, our spirits, our minds. We don't always hold space to process, to work though, name and lean into tensions any more than we strive to "fix" or come to immediate resolve. We deserve better. Brittany Janay offers embracing the power of the pause a reclamation of our time, possibility for ease, and a resource each of us has access to.

    The System Will Not Have My Soul. I Will Not Lose My Soul (w/ Brittany Janay)

    The System Will Not Have My Soul. I Will Not Lose My Soul (w/ Brittany Janay)

    "We will not lose our souls." Brittany Janay offers a loving affirmation, a reminder that even as we exist in systems not created with us in mind, we have the choice (and responsibility) to stay true to our values and community. She shares her thoughts on the difference between assimilation & code-switching and healthy adaptation, calling attention to what it means to use our power and honor our own complexity in lieu of losing our souls. She uses a historical anecdote, referencing the experiences of slave preachers and conjurers, and offers it as possibility for us-- what it means to exist "IN" a system while still being "FOR" our people.

    Community is Necessary to My Ability to Thrive (w/ Brittany Janay)

    Community is Necessary to My Ability to Thrive (w/ Brittany Janay)

    Existing in a culture that is heavy on the "individual," heavy on the "bootstrap," heavy on "climbing the corporate ladder, and "dog eat dog," can have us forgetting what is true to us: COMMUNITY. In this week's episode, Brittany Janay encourages us to unlearn patterns of individualism and REMEMBER the significance of community to our Blackness. She shares a passage from a book, "Spirituality and the Black Helping Tradition" by Elmer P. Martin and Joanne M. Martin, that beautifully describes the ways spirituality and community have influenced how we've contributed to our collective advancement from one generation to the next. Brittany ends with a loving reminder and affirmation that community ain't new to us, it is true to us; and is necessary to our ability to thrive.

    I Am Worthy of Taking Up Space (w/ Brittany Janay)

    I Am Worthy of Taking Up Space (w/ Brittany Janay)

    Brittany Janay is back this week with a loving affirmation for those moments when we are questioning whether or not we "belong" in the room. Within the context of a system of domination influenced by white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, among others, it is a common experience to question our since of belonging and internalize the lie that is imposter syndrome. As she puts it, not only do we belong, we are worthy of taking up space. She also asks listeners for some input. Reach out via IG (link in the show notes) or email (me@BrittanyJanay.com) if you have any thoughts on how the Liberated Love Notes Podcast can continue to evolve to center your experiences and nourish you.

    I Strive to Be MY Best (w/ Brittany Janay)

    I Strive to Be MY Best (w/ Brittany Janay)

    "Interrupting white supremacy and toxic individualism be like..." Brittany Janay reflects on what it means to unlearn what can feel like this perpetual need to be validated through mainstream, oppressive norms--to be seen as the ONE, to be seen as better than, to be regarded as THE best. She asks us to consider, "What happens when our vision or goals for ourselves, our businesses, our leadership, our BEING are contingent on someone else being seen as lesser than?" Brittany shares her thoughts on the difference between striving to be YOUR best versus striving to be seen as THE BEST ... because the latter can come with its costs.

Honesty

Even if you can’t relate to all the topics, the experiences are real. It’s important that we all digest what people see going through to champion better represented leadership.
