Alanis Morissette once sang

“You live you learn, you love you learn
You cry you learn, you lose you learn
You bleed you learn, you scream you learn”

And I believe this to be true. Life to me is about learning and growing. And not being afraid to make mistakes, because hey, we are only humans after all. So think about what 2018 has taught you and value the lessons learned and move on from the mistakes but keep on growing. That is why I’ve compiled the best read newsletters from 2018 below, but have also included some of the things we will be doing in 2019 so we can also start looking forward.

Like Pearl S Buck once said “Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.



So I went to see Beyoncé again for the 6th time on Tuesday! Remember her song Flawless?

‘We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller’…

Try again

Remember Aaliyah? I remember the day she passed away, really I
can still see myself standing where I was when I heard the news.

It was August 25, 2001 and that day I was going to work with an artist
at Lowlands festival. We were all in shock at the festival…
