Let me first put the disclaimer out there that I purchased this book when it first came out, but I was not in the right frame of mind to read it back then. Now, I think this book is heaven sent.
Kelly Cutrone is like a shot of hard liquor with no chaser. To some that might not be a compliment, but it the best compliment I can give her. “If You Have To Cry, Go Outside” was what I needed to get my mind on track and bring clarity to my life. The book is not a long read, or something that would take you days to get through–I read a chapter a day and took notes on key points she made in the book. What I learned from doing this was to follow the beat of your own drum, do what makes you happy, that normalcy is boring and to find my tribe.
All those things are very important no matter what walk of life you are in. Kelly is a very honest person, and I can see why she has all the success in her life. She was a kid from a small town who dreamt of moving to the big city, and she made her dreams come true. My favorite parts of the book are when she talks about her childhood when she planned elaborate events. Her talents emerged at a young age, but her parents pushed her another way. Thank God for the divine that put her on the right cosmic path. I start Normal Gets You, Nowhere on Sunday and I feel it will be a great book also.
If you need someone who is not going to sugar coat things or hold your hand like a baby, then this book is for you. It’s rare to find someone with complete honesty and truth inside them.
