This is P.R. maven Kelly Cutrone’s second book. It’s called “Normal Gets You Nowhere”.
Kelly’s first book “If You Have To Cry Go Outside… and Other Things Your Mother Never Told You” was revolutionary for me. It was the most honest, straightforward and realistic collection of advice and lessons on the world I had ever read. She is a very wise woman who has literally had an amazing, tumultuous journey on this earth. I honestly think it should be mandatory for young woman to read her books and hear the things she has to say. She just discusses things that people don’t talk about or own up to.
Her second book did not disappoint and had even more insight into the world and the way people are programmed to react. It’s a call to arms to break out of normalcy and the silence you’re expected to participate in and to live your own life, on your terms. To seriously take a step back and look at why we do things the way we do them and to figure out what is actually important in life.
I started this book at a really important time for myself. I’ve lost my old outlook on life and being able to focus on what I thought was right. I used to always look on the bright side and battle the everyday troubles by fighting back with as much positivity as I could. I got really got at training my brain to reinterpret the things that happened to me and make the most out of my life. I need to get back to me. This year has been tough. Losing my support system with being away from my friends and family for so long, having been away for almost a full year now. I need to reprogram myself and start being me again. And this book is one of my first steps.
Thank you Kelly Cutrone. I needed a good kick in the ass and wake up call.
