Gale, 47, admits she’s been through many tragedies in recent years, including the death of her father in 2014 and a miscarriage in 2016.
But the collapse of her Mindful Life business and the temporary closure of her co-owned restaurant Ascot Food + Wine along with the sudden death of her brother Jason have been tough.
Back then, Megan shared her sadness at the closure of her business in a poignant social media video.
“It’s gotten to a point where these issues are pretty much insurmountable and after much deliberation I’m making the decision, the very difficult decision, to close my online store,” Megan revealed in a candid video on her Instagram account.
Now she has opened up about how she faced closing down her beloved business while coming to terms with the death of Jason.
“All of this upheaval in business happened at the exact same time that I lost my brother,” she told the Courier Mail.
“At that point I didn’t have the mental capacity to think about how I was going to save the company because now all I have to do is grieve.”
Jason Gale’s body was found in 2020 after weeks of searching in bushland. It was not classified as suspicious by the police.
But Gale says she, Shaun and the children, River, 8, and Rosie, 5, are finally looking to the future with a sense of optimism and hope.
They have been spending time together at their holiday home in Daylesford, Victoria and with both children now at school they are determined that 2023 will be a good year.
“When I decided to quit and step down, I had some really good opportunities that came up for us,” she said.
Gale recently filmed Three Thousand Years Of Longing, directed by George Miller, and continues her work as an ambassador for her home state of WA.
