Iyanla Vanzant talks about his decision to end the series and reflects on past guests, including the "genius" DMX
Fans of Iyanla: Fix My Life may be disappointed that the series is drawing to a close, but the star of the series thinks it's time to say goodbye. “I was motivated to make this decision spiritually. It's time to move on. I said, “Okay,” says Iyanla Vanzant.
“I think I felt mentally and emotionally tired,” she adds. “I don’t want to do this anymore. I really didn't have a reason per se. I just don't want to do this anymore."
Yyanli's spiritual message she received was clear: "You are complete." Unsurprisingly, an inspiring speaker believes that when people don't listen to their gut, they force things after their life cycle has come to an end.
“Forcing yourself to stay in something after you're done with it is exhausting,” says the 67-year-old New York Times bestselling author. “We do it in marriage, at work, in different situations. And so I was exhausted, because my goal was achieved, and it took a lot of effort for me to stay."
Iyanlah's partnership with OWN (also known as the Oprah Winfrey Network) has been fruitful. Since its online premiere in 2012, the series has evolved into more than just a must-watch TV. It has become part of the culture, the phrase, the culmination where people jokingly want a New Yorker to fix their lives.
