My 2024 New Year’s Theme

My 2024 New Year’s Theme

Happy New Year! I hope your 2024 is off to a good start. As you may recall, my New Year’s tradition each January is to choose a word to guide me for the year. My word last year was RISE. Whether rising to, rising above, or rising from within, I committed to elevating myself to take a broader view of life’s challenges.

For 2024, the word I’m choosing to guide me is:


This year promises to be filled with new experiences—of course! Every year gives us that promise. But this year, I’m going to savor the uniqueness of those moments. I’m digging in, not just moving through each one.

I hope to intentionally focus on the full texture of the experience—cherishing the highs and learning from the lows—and then pause to savor the gift each one has to offer.

Although “what’s planned is possible” will always be my primary mantra and mode for navigating through life, I’m hoping the choice to “savor” will ground me in the present and remind me to more fully absorb each moment, preparing it to become a lasting memory.

How about you? What moments can you savor today to ensure they will become tomorrow’s memories?

And on we go.

My best – always,

Becky  (Nana B)
