=City Dove=

2015 was a big year! Was it always good? No. Did things work out as they should? Yes. Honestly, that's all I can ask for. 

 2014 was a year of transition. 2015 was a year of growth. 2016, well that's written in the stars so I'm not throwing out predictions yet. But I do know a few things, 2016 will be: new, exciting, adventurous, scary, ridiculous, fun, hard, sad, and most of all full.

Today marks the end of the North Carolina chapter, and I must say it's bittersweet. Not because I love Raleigh, because I don't, but because this place has some special people and special memories. For that reason, North Carolina will always have a place in my heart. 

Tomorrow morning a new chapter begins. This city dove is taking a one-way flight to the city that never sleeps, New York, NY! I'm thrilled that this is finally coming to fruition after MANY failed attempts.  I've prayed, wished, hoped, dreamed on that city and now, in 2016, I will call it home. 

If you know anything about me dates matter, holidays, birthdays all of it, so what better day to move than the First of the year?! But this date is significant because it shows the patience, the work, the prayer, and the growth that I needed to make this move. This is my blessing and I can't explain how thankful I am to be at this point. 

I know there are people who dislike the idea of resolutions or think New Years is a let down, but I love starting new. Of course, you can start something new any day, but there is something special about the beginning of the year, so enjoy it! For everything you didn't do in 2015, try to do it in 2016. If you fail, try again! Pray, meditate, find peace how you like; dream, focus, work, have fun how you like to, and ROCK 2016!
