YOUR MESSY BRILLIANCE by Kelly McNelis – Southeastern Book Tour @ Malaprops March 20

Join us at Malaprops Bookstore and Cafe on Tuesday, March 20  6 – 8 pm

Kelly McNelis Releases her New Book on Embracing the Messiness of Life Your Messy Brilliance:  7  Tools For the Perfectly Imperfect Woman

This book is not the typical self-help manual. McNelis provides a practical and down-to-earth road map for women to help them embrace every part of their lives and find power in their imperfections.  “There are so many things we are expected to be as women and it becomes exhausting trying to achieve that standard of perfection,” said McNelis. “This book is about learning to find passion and purpose in your flaws. It’s about utilizing the tools and power you already have in your life to find creativity and joy in the mess of it all.”

The book outlines seven tools for harnessing your inner power with chapter titles like, “Consciously Cultivate Imperfection,” “Embody Limitless Power,” and “Make a Powerful Choice.” McNelis uses personal experiences and relatable stories to help women begin the journey to finding their messy brilliance. This is a book for every woman who is tired of hearing all the ways they can perfect their lives to achieve happiness with diets, cleanses, and expensive personal development courses or retreats. She provides practical exercises for diving into your “darkness” and using perceived flaws and shortcomings as opportunities to grow and find your voice. These are the same tools McNelis has used to empower women globally to share their stories and find their strength within the Women For One community.

“This book combines wisdom from my experiences working with women from all over the world as well as my own personal experiences with grief and healing,” McNelis shared. “I have seen this approach transform the lives of hundreds of women as they reclaim their messy truths.” Your Messy Brilliance is a unique page-turner that sets itself apart from other self-help books. It offers women a new perspective that can help them stop feeling guilty about their mistakes and start moving forward with their brilliantly messy lives.

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
