Iyanla believes she had to write Peace from Broken Pieces to get her started on the next leg of the journey. "People are suffering all over the world and in our country and like me, I think many of us have to learn that it's not about things and it's not about money. It's not about your doingness," Iyanla says. "It's about your beingness."
How she found peace
Now, Iyanla is ready to start living the rest of her life and would like to help families dealing with problems that get passed down from generation to generation. "What God has for me, it is for me. As it unfolds, I'll accept it," she says. "That's what it's about for me. I now know how to receive."
