“This is an important lesson to remember when you're having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won't feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can't feel real joy unless you've felt heartache. You can't have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can't know what it's like to feel holy until you know what it's like to feel really fucking evil. And you can't be birthed again until you've died.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“This was when I learned that you have to give up your life as you know it to get a new one: that sometimes you need to let go of everything you're clinging to and start over, whether because you've outgrown it or because it's not working anymore, or because it was wrong for you in the first place.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“I advise you to stop sharing your dreams with people who try to hold you back, even if they're your parents. Because, if you're the kind of person who senses there's something out there for you beyond whatever it is you're expected to do - if you want to be EXTRA-ordinary- you will not get there by hanging around a bunch of people who tell you you're not extraordinary. Instead, you will probably
become as ordinary as they expect you to be.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“After all, you can't truly be happy if you've never known pain. You can't truly feel joy if you've never felt heartbreak. You can't know what it's like to be filled unless you've been empty.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“When you're following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you, even if they mostly slam at first.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“In breaking away from the familiar and the expected, you'll be forced and privileged to face greater challenges, learn harder lessons, and really get to know yourself.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“Things will change: you won't feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“When you leave home to follow your dreams, your road will probably be riddled with potholes, not always paved in happy Technicolor bricks. You'll probably be kicked to the ground 150 million times and told you're nuts by friends and strangers alike. As you progress you may feel lonely or terrified for your physical and emotional safety. You may overestimate your own capabilities or fail to live up to them, and you'll surely fall flat on your face once in a while.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“You find out who you are by figuring out who and what you're not”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“When you're the most happening person at the party, it's time to leave”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“I happen to believe the world will change only when we change ourselves. And that starts with finding ourselves: learning to quiet the clamor in our minds and the voices of everyone around us and move toward what feels right – toward the things we know, for reasons we can’t explain, that we’re mean to do, the things that makes us feel alive.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“B*tch: a reflection of people’s lack of creativity & inability to acknowledge & embrace a powerful woman; a woman who won’t comply.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“Dreams won't always take you on a straight path to destiny but they're usually related to what your soul wants for you. They'll force you to ask yourself the hard questions, they'll kick your ass and more importantly, they'll turn you on.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“If you aren’t hearing your inner voice, it could mean you’re overburdened or not stimulated enough, or that you’ve learned to shut it off because the people around you have refused to engage it. Perhaps you’ve had a hardening of the arteries around your soul. I believe the choices we make in our lives and the people and places surrounding us increase the volume of our inner voice, decrease it, or annihilate it entirely.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“If you cannot see yourself fairly or accurately represented in the community where you live... and nothing there makes you feel awake or alive, I suggest you start doing some research on some other communities”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“Take the years when you’re young – say, between the ages of fifteen and thirty-five, before you have a mortgage or kids or anything else that needs to be fed – and go balls out on intuition and follow your dreams. Dreams won’t always take you on a straight path to destiny, but they’re usually related to what your soul wants for you. They’ll force you to ask yourself the hard questions, they’ll kick your ass, and most importantly, they’ll turn you on.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“I believe all women know in their heart of hearts that they truly are divine and magical, even if they've temporarily forgotten.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“The only dream I ever had was the dream of New York itself, and for me, from the minute I touched down in this city, that was enough. It became the best teacher I ever had. If your mother is anything like mine, after all, there are a lot of important things she probably didn't teach you: how to use a vibrator; how to go to a loan shark and pull a loan at 17 percent that's due in thirty days; how to hire your first divorce attorney; what to look for in a doula (a birth coach) should you find yourself alone and pregnant. My mother never taught me how to date three people at the same time or how to interview a nanny or what to wear in an ashram in India or how to meditate. She also failed to mention crotchless underwear, how to make my first down payment on an apartment, the benefits of renting verses owning, and the difference between a slant-6 engine and a V-8 (in case I wanted to get a muscle car), not to mention how to employ a team of people to help me with my life, from trainers to hair colorists to nutritionists to shrinks. (Luckily, New York became one of many other moms I am to have in my lifetime.) So many mothers say they want their daughters to be independent, but what they really hope is that they'll find a well-compensated banker or lawyer and settle down between the ages of twenty-five and twenty-eight in Greenwich, Darien, or That Town, USA, to raise babies, do the grocery shopping, and work out in relative comfort for the rest of their lives. I know this because I employ their daughters. They raise us to think they want us to have careers, and they send us to college, but even they don't really believe women can be autonomous and take care of themselves.”

“But while my inner voice was clearly telling me I was at my core an entrepreneur, it's inconvenient to decide at twenty-three that you can't really work for other people.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“If you don't have a well-thought out dream, you can start by figuring out where you want to go. If you cannot see yourself fairly or accurately represented in the community you live (from restaurants to department stores to clothing choices to conversations at the dinner table) and nothing there makes you feel awake or alive, I suggest you start doing some research on some other communities.”

“In today's disposable culture, we throw away people like we do razors, always assuming there's someone better out there to hang out with, or to work for- people who will never embarrass us, let us down or offend us.”
Kelly Cutrone, Normal Gets You Nowhere
“Sometimes, if not most of the time, you find out who you are by figuring out who and what you are not.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“Stop sharing your dreams with people who try to hold you back, even if they're your parents.”

“Your dreams are ballbusters; they're not the yellow brick road.”

“Dreams won't always take you on a straight path to destiny, but they're usually related to what your soul wants for you.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“We're constantly getting these messages to mind our own business and look the other way if we want to be well liked, to not tell the truth or speak our mind or say anything too intense. Well, I'm telling you here that this approach not only makes you party to other people's crimes against themselves but is a prescription for mediocrity and delusion”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“The planet is here for our delight, but it is also here for us to change, to make it the best it can be. It's not just about sleeping and fucking and getting the right dress. Let's HOPE not.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“That was when I first observed a phenomenon I now call the "New York Slide": you offer your words to try to communicate and connect with someone, but your words just hit a brick wall the person has erected to ward off human contact- the words slide down it and roll away.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“Yet you look at your child and you just know from the beginning that she's going to break your heart. You just know it. You know she's going to steal your credit card and your cell phone and lie to you and call you a bitch because she has a crush on some guy you don't like. But you love her and want for her anyway, and it's the most beautiful, selfless love; you instinctively know you'd do anything for her, regardless of what she does to you.”
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“After all, you can’t truly be happy if you’ve never known pain. You can’t truly feel joy if you’ve never felt heartbreak. You can’t really know what its like to be filled unless you’ve been empty. And here’s the other thing: sometimes in life seasons don’t come in order instead of fall, winter, spring, summer, we get three winters in a row. But that doesn’t mean spring won’t come eventually.”
