Rachael Ray is thinking positive.
“Our light was dimmed a bit by the events of the last year,” she says. “But as I’ve been saying most of my life, not just in 2020 but since I was in my 20s: Every day you can flip the switch on in your own life.”
She added, “I’m determined, after a hard last year, to feel more joy during this one. And to spread it around!”
Ray also talks about how she’s approaching Valentine’s Day in a refreshing new way.
“I have so many single friends that I asked too often, ‘How’s your dating situation going?’ Since sheltering at home and meeting new people don’t really jibe, I finally learned to stop asking. I just sent extra love their way in the form of good food and Zoom cook-alongs,” she says.
Looking ahead to spring, Ray says, “You know I’m a big winter girl. I do not like it when the temperature hits 60, so I don’t tend to get excited for spring. But this year for the first time I can say that I am really looking forward to the first warm days and seeing proof of life again. A fresh, green planet is going to be the glimmer that starts us on our way to a better life, a better collective consciousness.”
