Wow!!!!!! What a wonderful week!
Firstly- I had 2 great pieces of press...one in the Woman's Day saying how I had made the wedding jewels for Jana Rawlinson-one of Oz's Olympic athletes and another in The Age newspaper talking about our new World Wide Good News website.
THEN...I FINALLY agreed to do a TV show on Channel 31 with Steve Williams. Now you may all think-yes yes-that's what she wanted all along, but it really wasn't. In fact last year I had some bizarre experiences with people I knew totally not understanding me and my motivation with You Tube and to be honest it kind of put me off doing all the celebrity stuff. However...Steve waited til I was ready and he is such a GREAT teacher and he is so encouraging that it has been an absolute pleasure embarking on the whole TV thing. I am totally comfortable around him and we are even kind of alike. So it's just PERFECT!!!
I REALLY REALLY love the connection I have made with people, regular people on You Tube. I LOVE making the Fitness videos on my 100 Day Fitness Challenge and seeing how people are really achieving their goals and I love receiving messages that I have helped people not feel as sad. THAT's what You Tube is about for me. I like doing the celebrity stuff too...the events etc, but my goal there was always to make it feel like everyone was there too. Those events still have a ring of glamour and an aura for me because I am just flitting in and out of that world. That's how I wanted to show it . It is exciting for me to go to a lovely event...I think I would hate to ever get to the point where I didn't appreciate it and brushed it all off as totally normal.
So everyone...3 years TODAY and I am so grateful to Lilou Mace, one of the creators of the 100 Day Challenge, for pushing me to do it. I have since met her and the other 2 girls involved too...Laura Duksta and Sandy Grason. All highly motivated,positive girls. In fact Lilou is one of the other anchors on World Wide Good News...check her out!!!
That's what life is about for me...surrounding myself with people who get me,support me and like me... it's not possible for everyone to like you-or you to like them ...so as I get older I am choosing to be around those that do.
Thanks so so much to all my You Tube friends-I am so grateful for the amazing things I have done. I have LOVED becoming a part of WICKED and making all those videos and getting to know the Wicked fans world wide. I don't think I will ever have that experience with another show.
SUPER BIG KISS to everyone who has been there for me these last 3 years...in another 10 years You Tube won't be such a big deal...in fact I think some of my original critiques may possibly have done videos themselves...funny how the world turns!!!
Have a happy day everyone!!!!!! Love Megan xxxxxxx

Well well well...just when I REALLY thought I knew my YOU TUBE and Facebook friends pretty well-I find a few of you out there do blogs...AND I feel like I have learnt a LOT from reading them...your views,your plans,your life...STUFF that you don't necessarily want on video and stuff too long for Facebook...it's a WHOLE NEW WORLD!!!
Well here's something I have not shared on You Tube...I would somehow like to be involved with Oprah's new network...not necessarily a paid job...or even a regular one...but somehow providing some input from Australia to her channel. Hmmmmmmm...just putting it out there...I still have hopes of Oprah and I making a You Tube video together...sitting at my computer and just saying hi to everyone...
Oh- the new website I have been asked to "co-anchor" is just about up too...very exciting as apparently various TV people are keen to check it out...will keep you all posted...it should be up this week...
HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYBODY xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

O-M-G!!!!!!! WHAT have I committed to??? After feeling rather remorseful from eating about 3 Easter Rabbits (minus the ears on TWO occasions), I have decided for the last 33 days of my 100 Day Fitness Challenge on You Tube and Facebook, that I will abstain from ALCOHOL!!!
This all sounds VERY nice in theory, but tonight Paul and I went to one of my FAVE restaurants in Melbourne...PEARL. This is one of those restaurants where they serve the wine at the most deliciously chilled temperature and after a HUGE spin class this morning I REEEEEAAALLLY felt like one!!!
HOWEVER- I resisted and am now feeling really smug and proud of myself and looking forward to a blazing finish of this Fitness Challenge.
OH- AND I saw The Blind Side today and thought it was the BEST movie I have seen in AGES!!! I so highly recommend it.
So.........anyone want to join me on an alcohol free month??? Here's the links to my Jewelchic Fitness Challenge on Facebook...we have nearly 300 people all over the world in it.

WOW WOW WOW!!! A blog page!!! I am just setting up a website right now and so I thought I would start RIGHT NOW to do a blog....as if I don't have ENOUGH online stuff already!!!
Hmmmmmm...well for those of you who haven't seen or heard from me before I am just basically into the positive side of life...my FAVE quote is from Mark Twain "Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great."
So that's me... I like to surround myself with people who get me and support me and who are my true friends whether I am in the room or not. I LOVE to encourage people and support others myself so I can never understand people who don't find joy in sharing in their friends happiness.
As I get older I find I am a lot less tolerant of the icky stuff...SERIOUSLY life is too short and I adore my friends and family and I TRULY try to search for the best in everything.
Hope you will join me with my blogging........
