Inspiration! Say Yes Please With Amy Poehler

I have always loved Amy Poehler.  She is just so smartly funny and ambitious and she plays Leslie Knope, the most optimistic feminist I've ever encountered in any form of life, fictional or real.

Naturally, I ate up her book, Yes Please and almost everyone I gave Christmas presents to got a copy.  This week I wanted to share with you the bits I highlighted while electronically reading the book, but I left my e-reader at home and am on a self-imposed deadline to get this post written, so instead I googled quotes from the book and am sharing ones from there that I think I might have highlighted, along with a note as to why I might have highlighted it.


I May Have Highlighted This Because: This is what I've been talking about a TON lately. With the Madeline L'Engle quote and the Tina Fey quote and my entire life right now. I don't want to talk about doing things, I want to do things! Like write these words, RIGHT NOW. LOOK AT ME DOING.


I May Have Highlighted This Because: I mostly just like this one because I love dancing like a crazy person and it's pretty much one the best way for me to stop thinking about anything else, especially what other people think about me or being self conscious or anything. Dancing like a wild creature (a wild creature that can hear music and with a body that can move however that music tells it to) is one of the most liberating things a person can do.


I May Have Highlighted This Because: Kindness is just the best thing. I'm working on this.
