New Year, New You!

Find Your Destiny!

Hey, lovely people! Just in case you didn’t know, it’s January 1st, 2017! That’s right. Another year passed…actually flew by. Hope you were able to accomplish all you wanted to in 2016.

Most of us, though, are probably still working toward our goals. For example, you may still not have reached the fitness goal you had set for yourself. Or, maybe you wanted to get a certain grade in a particular class, and it didn’t quite happen. Or perhaps, that promotion you had your eyes on for 2016 didn’t go through.

Don’t get discouraged! You are not alone, believe me. The good news is that we have more time to try to reach those goals. I mean, somebody up there thought we needed more time in this world because we’re not quite done, are we?

I do realize I’m rambling right now. But hey, just trying to help all of us regroup here. We need to be proud of all we did accomplish in 2016. We need to lift our heads up high and realize those tough times when we could have fallen a part, we held ourselves together and somehow made it through. We need to believe in ourselves and our dreams. Let the wind guide you. Don’t be afraid to adjust the sail to reach your destination.

I’m a firm believer of never giving up. If something is important enough, never walk away. It’s easier to walk away, trust me. It takes more courage to fight and keep fighting. This could be anything. It could be fighting for somebody you love. Or trying to get that degree. Or trying to land that job. Or even trying to sell millions of books. We all have to do some soul searching and figure out what’s important in our lives. Then, fight, fight, fight for that dream.

Perhaps it’s an idealistic view. But, who else will believe in us if we don’t believe in ourselves? We have one opportunity in this lifetime to get it right. You don’t want to be that 90 year old (yes, I’ve had many of these for patients, and they’ve regretted on missed opportunities) in a nursing home, remembering your life with nothing but regrets. Choose wisely. Live fully. Love unconditionally. Laugh uncontrollably. Find your destiny!

I wish you all a wonderful New Year! Here’s to 2017 and hoping much peace and happiness to you.

I leave you with this one final quote from one of my books, Chaysing Dreams: There will always be ups and downs, twists and turns in our lives. But we have to find the strength to keep moving forward. The past is done…it’s over, and you can’t change it. You can hold on to your memories and learn from them. Look at what’s in front of you, focus on your vision, and run toward it. Because when it’s all said and done, only you are in charge of your strength, peace, and happiness.” 

What is your path in life? What is your destiny?

About Jalpa Williby

Jalpa Williby was born in India and immigrated to the United States at the tender age of eight. A voracious reader, Williby’s adolescence was marked by a promising academic career. After graduating with a Bachelors of Science from the University of Illinois, Williby went on to earn her Masters Degree in Physical Therapy from Northwestern University. Her passion for helping her patients led her to a specialty in neuroscience, focusing on children and adults with neurological impairments. For the past 20 years, Williby has worked as a Physical Therapist, a career she loves because she gets to make a difference, “One person at a time!” When she is not working, she enjoys reading, writing, and spending time with her husband and her three children. Juggling her time as a wife, a mother, and working fulltime, her love and passion for books never subsided. Some of her favorite books are A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Twilight Series, and The Hunger Games Trilogy. When asked what inspired her to write her debut novel, Chaysing Dreams, Williby answers simply, “Because I have a story to share.”
