Iyanla Vanzant is the founder and executive director of Inner Visions International and the Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development. She is the author of 13 titles—including five New York Times bestsellers—and the Inner Visions CD Series. Peace from Broken Pieces: How to Get Through What You’re Going Through has been published by SmileyBooks and available here. Iyanla is a Spiritual Technician. She is a Master Teacher. She is a woman of passion, clear vision and purpose, with a wicked sense of humor. Ordinary? Maybe. We think Dr. Maya Angelou's description is much more appropriate. Iyanla is, by many accounts, a Phenomenal Woman!
We don't know how to celebrate because
we don't know what to celebrate.
- Peter Brock
Guess what? We are having a party today in celebration of you. You are one of your favorite people in the world. You are what life is all about and you know it. So let's celebrate. Let your hair down! Kick off your shoes! Open the windows, the curtains and the blinds? Pump up the volume and let's do it for you! Let's celebrate your victories big and small. Let's celebrate the things you did that you thought you couldn't do, but you did them anyway -- and they worked. Let's celebrate because millions didn't make it and you're one of the one's who did. We're going to invite everyone in the world to celebrate in the being of you. We're going to have a low-down get-down in honor of you. This is what life is all about. Living, laughing and loving; not worrying, working and whining. So come on, get loose, get free, get up so we can get down in celebration of you -- let's boogie!
Today is my day to let the good times roll.
