22 Life Lessons Learned from Dr. Mindy Lahiri

We’ve been waiting and lingering.

We’ve been nothing short of devoted and loyal.

We’ve also been extremely patient, considering our life has been put on hold for the last few months in anticipation of what has served as our source of wisdom, sageness, and basically daily bread.

And now our reward has finally arrived!

To usher in Season 3 of The Mindy Project, we want to do a little recap slash make a little trip down memory lane to revisit and relive past adventures, to see just how far our favorite Mindy has come…or maybe not.

But either way, we love her for her quick wit, fun wardrobe, and monstrous appetite, and not to mention her perfect apartment.

For a little diversion and to fill you up with solid sagacity (after all, you are taking advice from a DOCTOR, and for free!), here are 22 life lessons we can learn from her:
