I have been really digging newsletters for the past several months. I’m planning to do a write up of my faves soon. But for now, think about these questions:
Are we BFFs? Should we be BFFs? Do you like to imagine we’re BFFs?
If the answer to any of these is yes, my new newsletter is for you. (Sorry, the two people who signed up for my old secret newsletter… This is a whole different thing. But it’s still for you.)
A really common exercise to help people decide how to spend their time is to ask them to imagine their funeral. What do they want to be remembered for?
The only answer I consistently come up with is that I want the people gathered to all feel, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that I cared about them.
My brother-in-law got married this past weekend. My mother-in-law had to give a speech at the rehearsal dinner. She was self-conscious going into it. At the reception, she told me that as she stood there, she thought, “Well, Kimberly would tell me I can do this, so I can.” And thinking of that helped her get through it, and of course she did a beautiful job.
I want as many people as possible to feel that way. I don’t know what kind of reach this newsletter will have or where it will go. But I hope each person who reads it will feel like they’re not alone, like someone believes in them, like someone has their back.
I’m describing it as
Like a high five in your inbox. Platonic love notes and things that made me think of you.
