It is interesting how when we don’t listen to that intuitive voice inside ourselves that it will find someone who we WILL listen to. Then we say, “oooOOOoooo…Why didn’t my gut tell me that before?” And the gut just shakes its head and rolls its eyes, saying, “I did…many times.”
I wrote you earlier on what I got from Iyanla’s radio show. This evening I watched her new show, Iyanla Vanzant: Fix My Life” on Oprah’s network. She was coaching Evelyn Lozada regarding her relationship with Chad, the Miami Dolphins player.
Quotes that struck me were:
Your intuition is your power as a woman.
I accepted and tolerated inappropriate behavior from a man.
You train people how to treat you.
Vote for you!
Revelations came up for me when she discussed how issues with Evelyn’s father were brought into the marriage. Tis very hard stuff.
I’m very grateful to Evelyn for opening up to Iyanla and doing the work in front of a vast audience. Her vulnerability in doing this took a lot of courage. Because of her strength, I was faced with some tough issues in my life and am finding the wherewithall to deal with them.
Thank you to both Iyanla and Evelyn for doing this amazing show. One thing I really like about Iyanla, albeit a tad intimidating, is that she doesn’t hold anything back. She just gives it to you straight. It’s hard to hear, but o so necessary and healing when it’s faced.
