Hope is one of the most powerful emotions one can feel... Sometimes I feel it like a title wave and other times all my hope is lost. Truthfully from my experiences in dealing with both depression and anxiety hope can sometimes feel like a wish and a prayer. Change even in the smallest way can shake my hope and there is a lot of change happening in my life now.
So much in my life is changing and it's all for the better! For the past few years my life has been a roller coaster but now I have my life on a new path filled with hope for all of my goal both easy and hard... For a while I had lost hope that things would workout for the better, I allowed my discouragement to cloud my path to my own professional and personal success... NOT ANYMORE! I am surrounding myself with amazing and supportive people who are the driving force to my success and have been for quite some time.
I've have learned however that people come and go in our lives and that's OK, but I must not let their absence affect how I move toward my desired future... Dwelling on the past is not the answer it is just part of the distraction. Learning from the past is whats important, good lessons or bad.
Hope is sometimes what we think we have lost but in other times it is what we cling to the most... In our day to day lives we all feel hope at some point... Hope is a power that in my opinion can drive someone to achieve greatness or find peace in their lives... Long live the hope in all of us...
Thanks for reading everyone, 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
