While talking to E! News' Daily Pop on Tuesday, November 30, the former Today cohost gushed over the next chapter of her life, before hinting at some of her future plans.

"I'm doing the best work of my life. I am a very, very joyful person, and it comes truly from the inside out," the 68-year-old confessed during the interview, noting she would be open to the idea of getting back to working on TV — but not "from the Northeast anymore."

"Nothing can take me away from [Nashville]. Well, maybe Scotland with Craig Ferguson," Gifford added of the Scottish-American television host — whom she costarred in Then Came You with. (The award-winning artist relocated to Nashville in 2019 after she decided to step back from cohosting the NBC morning show.)

And while The Jesus I Know author apparently isn't interested in having her own show, she hinted she had a few ideas going through her mind related to her TV return. "This girl has still got some dreams left," the Daytime Emmy Award winner teased, noting her "dreams" can be credited to this "brand new season" of her life.

"I am more aware of how precious life is. I've lost so many people in my life," Gifford candidly shared. "Obviously [husband] Frank [Gifford] six years ago, my precious Regis [Philbin] last year, my mom and dad."

The Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee alum's late husband and former NFL player died in 2015 of natural causes, one week before his 85th birthday. Philbin died in July 2020 from a heart attack at age 88.

"If I concentrate on what I've lost, I won't be thanking God for the blessings and all I have," Gifford pointed out. "I just wake up with an attitude of gratitude and I expect God to show up in my life."

Reflecting on her new outlook, Gifford — who has since moved on with beau Randy Cronk — also shared that her "keys to happiness" include starting each day realizing her goals. "Waking up every morning and realizing that my life has a purpose, and that purpose is not to tell people how to vote, not how to think, tell them God loves them," the TV personality declared.

Gifford stepped back from Today in 2019 after more than ten years on the beloved show, and admitted her husband's death influenced her decision to walk away from it all at the time.

“After my husband passed, you really realize that you’re gonna run out of time," she said on The Tonight Show in April 2019. "He didn’t know that morning he was running out of time.”
