Have you put your dreams on hold?

I friend of mine currently residing in Australia, brought a very valid point to the table this morning. She messaged me through facebook and let me in on what she’s been recently thinking about. Her name is Tara. Tara and I have been through thick and thin and somehow have still come out stuck together. She is my dysfunctional marriage version of a best friend ;). Anyways, she was reminiscing on our graduation from elementary school. The teachers had made the whole graduating class rehearse for months so that we could finally sing “Reach” by Gloria Estefan for the graduation ceremony. Corny as hell, but hey – it was elementary school!

Anyways, the song is about achieving your dreams and fulfilling your destiny. About really getting what you want out of life and pushing to be your best self. Tara asked me “Robyn, how many people do we actually know who are still going for their wildest dreams and actually achieving them”? When I thought about it seriously, I realized that there really werent very many! Many people I know have accepted a crappy standard of living, are in horrible jobs, or settled for something a little less than what they originally hoped for. I understand in elementary school you don’t know anything about the dedication it takes to be a doctor or a lawyer, or what it really takes to travel around the world. The part that disturbs me though, is not that people haven’t gotten around to their life’s “to do” list, it’s that they have simply buried it under a pile of crap that is utterly meaningless to them!

We are all still young and most of us haven’t even really started to experience life yet. I get it. I know how hard it is to save money for the things you want to do, and the places you want to explore. Just don’t push it out of your life. Work hard to achieve your dreams, as I truly believe if you don’t they will eventually come back to bite you in the “mid-life crisis” ass. Whatever you suppress now will only come back to haunt you as regret later on. Seize life and make it yours, and never, never, never give up!

I Need Your Help!!!

Alright y’all! I have gone out and done it!

I have signed myself up for “The Weekend to End Breast Cancer” here in Montreal! I have commited to walking 60km over the course of a weekend (rain or shine) from August 21st till the 23rd! All money raised goes to the Jewish General Hospital here in Montreal, and towards research and development of putting an end to cancer for good. Check out this link to know exactly where your donation goes:

My personal goal is to raise $10,000 (I need a minimum of $2,000 to even be able to walk for the cause). So, in other words…


Cancer is a sore subject for almost everyone out there. As a woman or a man if you have not directly been affected by this disease, you most probably have lost a loved one from it or know someone who has. I myself lost both grandmothers, my great grandmother, as well as my great aunt – all of whom I was very close to. Cancer is heartbreaking, and an ongoing threat to everyone at every age, gender and race. I am afraid for my family as well as my own future!

Please, help me do my part!

It dosn’t have to be a lot – $5, $10, every dollar counts!

Let me walk the walk for you – Enter my name: Robyn Chalmers or Personal ID Number:432044-7 when making your donation at the following link:
