this book was given to me by a very special and dear person to me...and May God Bless her heart... the reason i opened my eyes was becuase this book..opened my eyes...in love...

This is a book that brings you into such an awareness of how you might have been feeling, but were unable to name it. Being in the meantime, doesn't mean your doing it wrong. It just means you haven't come to terms with what it is that IS going to bring you happiness. Learning to love yourself has to come first, despite mistakes you've made. Accepting your mistakes and forgiving yourself is a start. Remaining "in the meantime" to me, means your accepting that maybe, you just aren't ready to move into another chapter of your life. For whatever reason? Identifying why and how you get there, and if you'll stay beyong a meantime experience, is truly what loving yourself is all about. The greatest romances of all time, haven't been built on one meeting. Sometimes you have to go back and it give it another try. Maybe that's what the meantime is about? Loving yourself, trusting in your decision making, and having faith in yourself - - is what it is all about?

Thank you Ms. Vanzant...for this all inspiring book of knowledge and wisdom.

I can't get enough of this book. I carry it with me wherever I go. Iyanla Vanzant has brought me closer to myself, God, and those I care about the most.

It was a very good book. It was deep, and dealt with a lot of issues which were close to home but, gave answers to.

Very inspirational, thought-provoking, entertaining and truthful. Definitely food for the mind!!!

This book gave me hope. Great advice throughout. Puts life in perspective.

I found this book helped me to start on the journey of finding myself, not being ashamed of where I had been. It has helped me on my journey of finding myself and drawing closer to God.
