Yes Please and Apologies – Amy Poehler has me practicing good manners

So I got Amy Poehler’s new book, Yes Please for Christmas (as I incessantly requested) and the book is awesome! I love learning about the winding life journey of one of my favorite comedians. She also has some great tokens of wisdom sprinkled throughout the book which I am always appreciative of. Here’s one great piece of advice from a difficult situation she experienced. Her raw honesty leading up to this quote only makes it even more powerful.

“Apologies have nothing to do with you.
They are balloons in the sky.
They may never land.
They may even choke a bird.”

–  “Say whatever you want” (p.76)
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
