The last year has been one of strange, new challenges. By now you and your favorite ladies are used to virtual happy hours, you've struck the perfect WFH balance with your furry friends, and your houseplants are thriving! 

Even if you have "the new normal" down pat, sometimes you just need some sarcastic wit to help you laugh through the world we are living in. That is why we love Mindy Kaling, she's a fiercely independent, hilarious woman who has the perfect quote for just about any situation. What's even better is her one-liners are more relevant today than ever before! 

We've done some virtual book clubs around the office (okay we just went into a Mindy quote coma, we admit it) to put together this list of 10 Mindy Kaling quotes that are more relevant than ever. Personally, we recommend reading them after lighting one of our quippy quoted candles to really get you in the mood but do what feels right. 

Mindy on Friendship

In her books Why Not Me? and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy has a lot to say about everything but especially friendship. We love the honesty, vulnerability and relatability with which Mindy talks about female friendships: 

"One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about."

"There are not many relationships more powerful than that of two women who fall fast and deep into a friendship. It was heartbreaking to be loved and left."

"We never needed best friend gear because I guess with real friends you don't have to make it official. It just is."

But just in case you do need something to symbolize how official your friendships are, give your gals friendship bracelets with an empowering edge

Mindy's Take on Life

From a cold dose of reality to the kick in the pants you need to conquer life, Mindy has the advice you need to tackle life and grow a little along the way. 

"Sometimes you just have to put on lip gloss and pretend to be psyched." (Girl, same.)

"Throwing a tantrum feels good because you think you are ruining everyone's good time when you feel your very worst. But the truth is, you're not ruining their good time, you're just giving them another good story."

"Work hard, know your shit, show your shit, and then feel entitled. Listen to no one except the two smartest and kindest adults you know, and that doesn't always mean your parents. If you do that, you will be fine."

"...the scary thing I have noticed is that some people really feel uncomfortable around women who don't hate themselves. So that's why you need to be a little bit brave." 

And on that note, here's one from us to you: Babes Against BS.

Relationships by Mindy

Whether you're single or locked down with your one true love. There's room for some Mindy-isms in your relationship mantra. 

"That's the one nice thing about being a dork about men: you can sometimes play it off as restrained and classy."

"In my mind, the sexiest thing in the world is the feeling that you're wanted."

Wrap It Up Mindy!

If you're not fangirling about how awesome Mindy is by now, here's our parting thought courtesy of Mindy: 

"I will leave you with one last piece of advice, which is: If you've got it, flaunt it. And if you don't got it? Flaunt it. 'Cause what are we even doing here if we're not flaunting it?"

So flaunt it girl — because you are MORE than worth it.
