What a beautiful day on the water with family on the Boston Harbor Cruise Line for the Northern Lights Autumn Foliage Cruise... Even in the rain! Making time to spend with the people we care about is one of the most important things anyone can do to keep a positive mind space.
Usually I'm a YES!!! It's raining out, stay in bed all day and watch movies kinda girl... but today I embraced my love of both open water and rain and took my mum on a cruise to see this years foliage. Sitting on the boat I thought about how easy it would have been for me to cancel because of the bad weather and to be honest if this was a year ago... hell even 6 months ago I would have. It really all comes down to opening myself up to new unexpected experiences and not closing up or give up when there is a hiccup or a wrinkle in my plans...
Today I happy to report was a wonderful day with my mum, sometimes you need to take a day off and enjoy the world around you. I hope you enjoy the pictures below and than you for reading! God Bless!

I have decided to keep a digital journal/blog to share my day to day experiences with my life after sexual assault and with my charity The Talie Marie Foundation. I have over the years tried to do both and unfortunately I hadn't had success, this will help me not only be more consistent but also help me with opening myself up to the people around me. I believe in that having hope & opening your heart with forgiveness has been a large part of my recovery process. I'm a member of the RAINN Speakers Bureau, The nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. I decided to join the RAINN team in the spring of 2011 along with writing and working to publish my book about my own experiences dealing with sexual and domestic violence in my life to be release in 2017. I have dedicated my life to raising awareness and educating victims and their families on the resources available to them not only in the USA but worldwide. Thank you for taking this journey with me. ~ Talie Marie
