I hope you had a wonderful break Beloveds. Things do get better Beloveds, especially if we can find the little things in life that we are grateful for and use them to focus our love for everything that shows up in our lives. I came home, went straight to my room, sat on the edge of my bed, kicked off my shoes, unhooked my bra, and I had myself a good cry. I cried until my ears were hot.

What is the lesson in abuse, neglect, abandonment, rejection? What is the lesson when you lose someone you really love?
Just what are the lessons of life's hard times? Bestselling author Iyanla Vanzant has had an amazing and difficult life -- one of great challenges that unmasked her wonderful gifts and led to wisdom gained. In this simple book, she uses her own personal experiences to show how life's hardships can be re-languaged and revisioned to become lessons that teach us as we grow, heal, and learn to love.
The pain of the past does not have to be today's reality. Iyanla Vanzant is an example of how yesterday's tears become the seeds of today's hope, renewal, and strength.

I saw Iyanla speak at the Javits Center in It was truly a life changing experience, just incredible. I think I started this book the next day and adored it. Re-reading it now nine years later, I realize that Iyanla's lecture was amazing and I think the book, which is good but not amazing, got lumped into the whole experience for me.
This book taught me many things I needed to learn. The lessons are profound. But the book meanders and much of the writing is weak. The whole conceit of Iyanla taking a bath while remembering the parts of her past which require healing becomes very silly very quickly. My friend Mellie and I read the book together and had ongoing jokes about Iyanla's hours long bath which was followed by a shower, which was followed by another bath, etc.
Iyanla is a wise teacher and I'm interested in anything she has to say, anything she writes. I prefer her audiobooks to her written books. Her speaking voice, like her message, is very powerful. Jun 13, Camille rated it really liked it. I loved this story! I true tale of overcoming challenges and leaving your past behind.
Though it is categorized as a self help book I didn't take it that way. I see it more of a moving memoir and a personal step in Vanzant's growth. It took me a bit longer to read than normal because I really wanted to internalize everything taught in this book and try to find parallels to my own life There were quite a few!

And Iyanla Vanzant is like the mama every girl needs to tell her what to and what not to do, because she has been there! Yesterday I cried while reading Yesterday I Cried. If you've ever made mistakes in your life, add this to your reading list!
Mar 02, Author-suchalady Blackheart rated it it was amazing. I loved the original and learned alot from it she told some of my story in this book but she also gave me the courage to write my own story and live my on life and be myself. I pillared off the back of Iyanla Vanzant I will be re reading the orginal book when i get a hold of it.
Jun 08, Baratang rated it liked it. Only GOD could have made Rhonda survive her grandmother's brutality and cruelty. I read details of her abose with difficulty and when I finally learned how old she was when her skin was ripped off her back, I sobbed. Her step mother was wonderful and I couldn't help but wonder why men would abuse such good women, and why women gave into the emotional and sometimes physical abuse.
The characters may have been born and bred in the US, but Africa was still in them. As an African, grandma's religious practices reminded me of the African apostolic church, where Christianity and Africanism co-existed and formed a new religion. Iyanla's mentor for her calling also practiced things that are our daily bread here. It was shocking though, that at 17, Rhonda had already given birth to 4 children. Her choice of men also made me wonder if there was a deep psychological problem with her.
How she survived the beatings, I don't know. He letter to her son in jail was quite something. All in all, I believe that when someone hangs their linen so openly for the world to see, they are truly done with their old ways and will never look back again. View 2 comments. Shelves: I love Iyanla Vanzant, but I did not like this book. It is basically an autobiography, and Iyanla has a very depressing life.
Not only is it a depressing read, it is also boring. She is honest with her story, but she tells it in a clinical way. It is strange to read about some horrific events and feel no emotions from Iyanla.
If you don't already love her, I don't think you will enjoy this book. Nov 11, Shalonda Williams-McClendon rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anyone that needs to understand that life has a process. Shelves: inspirations. Reading this book was such a blessed experience. I find that sharing in the process of someones journey is something special indeed. I had moments of reflection.
I had moments of inspiration. I had moments of sadness. I had moments of enlightenment. I love this read and would encourage others to share in the experience of reading it. Feb 04, Lana rated it it was amazing. This is one of the most heart-felt, soul-cleansing, inspiring books I've ever read. I love anything Iyanla writes, but this book is so honest and vulnerable that there aren't enough words to describe the emotions it brought out in me.
