Iyanla Vanzant, spiritual life coach and host of OWN’s “Iyanla: Fix My Life”, has landed on the cover of Essence‘s February 2013 issue in a burgundy lip and bold jewelry. The issue hits stands next week, and Iyanla explains why it’s important for women to be honest and share all of themselves with their partners.
“Be willing to share all of who you are. So many of us want a partner, but we’re not willing to show all of us. That’s why we have a weave, we’re wearing Spanx and everything is ‘fine.’ If you’re not willing to let your partner see your cellulite or know your biggest fears, then you aren’t really ready to share yourself…”
Iyanla is also the founder of Inner Visions Institute and best selling author of several books. In a recent twitter post, she states: “When we are align our minds and hearts to the flow of life, love and Divine Mind, we are rewarded with the truth of our being.”
Sounds like Iyanla’s life doesn’t need any fixing!
