I want to be friends with Mindy Kaling. She is super smart, a hilarious writer, friends with John Krasinski, my same age, and lives in the same town as me. Meant to be besties? I think so. She wrote a new book, so maybe it will feel like we are friends after I read it.
But, I kind of feel like Mindy and I already are friends after reading this quote by her today on her website:
"I am so terrified, you guys. Not because I don't think the book is great-- which it really is, I swear-- but because it is the first thing I've ever done creatively that is 100% me. There hasn't been a more complete representation of who I am then this book. So win or lose, it'll all be on me."
I feel so much the same way about simply being who God made me to be. It's not that I don't think who God made me to be isn't great. It's just that when I am only that, it leaves me open to being simply being me, comfortable in my own skin, secure knowing Jesus died for me, without the bells and whistles I usually try to be as well to make sure people like me. So, Mindy, one day I hope we meet here in L.A. And, if we do, I hope we get to talk about this quote. And, being 32. And, John Krasinski.
