In The Meantime: Finding Yourself and the Love You Want | [Iyanla Vanzant]

In The Meantime: Finding Yourself and the Love You Want

What is the meantime? According to author and inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant, being in the "meantime" means being in a state of limbo. Rather than wallow in confusion, Vanzant encourages you to use the meantime to prepare yourself for true love. The first order of business is to clean house. Room by room, Vanzant takes you through a metaphorical cleaning of the soul. This way, when love finally comes knocking on the front door, you'll have a clean house to welcome it into.

Publisher's Summary

What is the meantime? According to author and inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant, being in the "meantime" means being in a state of limbo. "When you are not happy where you are and you are not quite sure if you want to leave or how to leave, you are in the meantime," she explains. Rather than wallow in confusion, Vanzant encourages you to use the meantime as an opportunity to prepare yourself for true love. The first order of business is to clean house, starting with the basement, the place in the psyche where you store your most destructive thoughts. Room by room, Vanzant takes you through a metaphorical cleaning of the soul. This way, when your meantime days are over and love finally comes knocking on the front door, you'll have a clean house to welcome love into.

    Story
    "A whole new understanding of relationships"
    If you could sum up In The Meantime in three words, what would they be?

    Crucial relationship knowledge.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    I love Iyanla and I loved hearing her narrate her own book. She makes you feel like she's your best friend sitting beside you, holding your hand and loving you through your "stuff".


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That relationships need to be recognized for what they are and that there is nothing wrong with a "meantime" relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    This woman speaks directly to my heart and I am always enlightened and profoundly changed by her work.

    "Love Iyanla and her work. This book is a classic."

    I've always loved this book!

    Solid points on taking responsibility for our own lives.

    Brilliant stories to support Iyanla's wisdom.

    My only disappointment was that it wasn't longer. I feel like a lot of the content from the paper copy was missing.

    Story
    "Wow!"

    Iyanla guides you through her memories with such precision, you almost feel as if you are there. She is brutally honest about her own perception of herself. This honesty help me to be honest with myself also. Her voice is smooth when it needs to be and yet she is able to draw the real emotion out in the most important moments.

    "Life changing!!!"

    This book has been like my relationship Bible. Putting the principles into practice has transformed my life. Iyanla's honesty about her own meantime experiences helped remove my judgment of my own. I can truly say that I now come from a place of love. Thank you Iyanla!!!

    Story
    "Finally understood why I was so angry"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. It helps you understand why you feel in certain ways, and from there, how to move forward in you emotional healing process.


    What other book might you compare In The Meantime to and why?

    I do not have the experience to make a comparison.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The understanding, calm and soothing voice of the narrator makes you feel that part of comfort that is maybe impossible to put from yourself as if you're reading such a book it is because you do not feel well. Sometimes you need the calming voice of someone else.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me say "ahà" and "wow" a lot of times. :-) Very enlightening.


    Any additional comments?

    I would very appreciate if you make available the audiobook of "Forgiving everyone for everything" by Mrs. Vanzant.
