OH, g’day there 2019 Brodie,

This is your in­spi­ra­tional 2018 ver­sion. I think they just get bet­ter as the years go on, so hope­fully by 2019 you will have reached an ab­so­lute peak. Af­ter the hol­i­days you would have got­ten back onto your healthy eat­ing plan and shaved off a cou­ple more kegs. Lov­ing life in Christchurch. It would have been an amaz­ing, amaz­ing year in the city, watch­ing it grow and watch­ing all the new bars and restau­rants open.

You would have had an awe­some year in your new job in ra­dio with the won­der­ful Fitzy on the Fitzy and Brodie Show. I dare say, we will have the whole city lis­ten­ing to that ra­dio show ev­ery morn­ing. We would have wiped out all the other sta­tions. That’s sort of a slow burner over the year.

I reckon you would have had an awe­some hol­i­day, prob­a­bly in Bali be­cause that’s where you go ev­ery year. Will Jo Kane (aka mum) come? Yes, she prob­a­bly will. Will we drink many Bin­tangs? Yes, we will.

But most of you will en­joy the won­der­ful year, sur­rounded by friends and fam­ily, be­cause that’s what it’s all about.

Na mihi 2019. WHAT’S up, Naz.

2018 has been your best year yet. You have been smash­ing heaps of goals but also on the way, help­ing many, and I am talk­ing thou­sands, smash their goals too. Helped em­power them, taught them to be a wolf, and also never to fear judg­ment from any­one. You know why? Be­cause it is so im­por­tant to be your true self and to truly be happy as well. So many have life goals – buy­ing a busi­ness, buy­ing a house, hav­ing a fam­ily, which is fair enough, but you Naz – your num­ber one goal this year was to be happy and girl­friend, you smashed it. And along the way, you helped thou­sands.

Keep it real baby.

Brodie Kane has worn many hats – ra­dio jour­nal­ist, Fair Go pre­sen­ter and sports pre­sen­ter on TV One’s Break­fast. 2018 sees her put an­other one on, as break­fast ra­dio show host in Christchurch. The for­mer Bach­e­lorette is now a hap­pi­ness war­rior.
