Well, I can't say 2021 turned out at all like I had anticipated or planned... In reality can any of us say that this year went according to plan.
Every year at this time I like to sit down and reflect on the past year. The good, the bad and the in between. I have said time and time again that I don't particularly like resolutions but am a fan of setting goals for the coming year. I feel like when we set goals, we are more likely to stick with them and find ways to make them come about.
I do have to say as I reflect on my 2021, I did achieve the majority of my goals. A few of the goals I had on the list I had to let go of because of the way things are right now with COVID. I am always adding and taking stuff off my list as we move further into a new year. It's important to remember like everything in life your goals can be adapted.
I am just grateful that I have made it through another crazy year and still was able to make progress personally and professionally. I can't believe I launched my own show Food for Life on E360TV this year, been able to meet and work with new amazing partners for work and most of all I am proud of how I managed to adapt this year.
Whether you choose to set goes or not wish to think about 2021 at all. Stay safe and be well.
Cheers to 2022 and Fresh Start for us all! XoXo, Chef Ashley
