Actress, author and funny woman Mindy Kaling has quite the talent for inspiring others to look at life with a sense of humor, and make light of the issues that we all face in everyday life.
Not only that, Mindy is full of life lessons and inspiring quotes that can help brighten anyone’s mood on a particularly cloudy day. Here are 6 of them:
#1 “If you got it, flaunt it. If you don’t got it, flaunt it.”
Beautifully reminding us all that not having “it” doesn’t matter at all. After all, everyone’s idea of attractive is different, there is no one, single mold. Everyone is different and therefore beautiful.
#2 “Sometimes you just have to put on lip gloss and pretend to be psyched.”
We all have things we don’t want to do in life and we all have days when we don’t want to put on a smile. But sometimes, you just have to suck it up.
#3 “I’m so excited, no one I saw today will I see tomorrow, so I can wear the same outfit again.”
Mindy has no shame about being a real person. I know I can’t be the only one that avoids being photographed in a certain outfit on a night out, just so I can wear the same thing again next week as if it’s brand new.
#4 “Effortless is overrated. 2015 is about being effortful. Way sexier.”
A little reminder that making an effort goes a long way. There’s nothing unattractive about trying a little, it shows you care about something.
#5 “I think I was the only person who ate food at the BBQ I was at today and I’m fine with that. I just want everyone to know that I know.”
We’ve all been there, a classy party with delicious food that no one seems to be eating. Mindy is proof that just because no one else is doing something, doesn’t mean you can’t, especially when it comes to food. Eat that hot dog and be a person.
#6 “One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about.”
A modern twist on the classic notion that having a few close friends you can trust is better than having a hundred friends that you can’t.
