ESSENCE Magazine is switching up their cover rotation with a new subject on the February 2012 issue: Iyanla Vanzant. The life coach graces the cover alongside the line: “10 Ways You Can Fix Your Life and Get To Happy.”
The former single mother of three on welfare has made an empire out of doling out no-nonsense wisdom and sharing her life experiences. She gives counsel to people struggling with infidelity, abuse, abandonment and more on her popular weekly series on the OWN network, “Iyanla: Fix My Life.”
In ESSENCE Magazine, she shares 10 steps to finding happiness, including advice on finding a partner:
“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.”
The February issue of ESSENCE hits stands on 1/11. What do you think of Iyanla’s ESSENCE cover, Clutchettes?
