I wrote this in a recent Instagram post about Amy Poehler's book, Yes Please. I think it best describes my admiration for it:
Oh my gosh, she's my favorite. When I was younger, my dad told me, "Don't be a princess. A princess can't use her intelligence to make her own choices in life. Look for women who are strong, smart, and kind and recognize how much more beautiful that is than a princess." Amy Poehler is that kind of awesome to me, plus she also grew up in Massachusetts so double win in the hero department.
I'm just diving into Yes Please and I don't think I could love it any more... Right on, Amy Poehler.
