I received the Liebster Award by Silver Lining at HopeFulDepression. It took a minute to pull myself up off the floor. I’m grateful for the nomination. The Liebster Award has a long history in the blogging community. The award is given to blogs with less than 1,000 followers as a way to acknowledge and motivate new blogs. I discovered the word Liebster is of German origin which is perfect since I’m of German origin. Nothing like a mix of German, Neanderthal and American Indian. I’m honored to receive the Liebster Award from a long time follower. Her work is powerful, I urge you to stop by to see for yourself. http://hopefuldepression.wordpress.com
How did you come up with name of blog?
I have Treatment Resistant Bipolar Disorder and have spent years in darkness. Looking for the Light could sum up your hopes for relief.
Has the experience been what you expected?
I’m having so much fun meeting people from across the globe. Shortly after starting my blog, I joined The Cut Throat Club a collaborative group of survivors. We support each other in recovery and offer support to the community. I’m privileged to share my experience of abuse and depression with others. If sharing helps one person, my heart will smile.
One thing that scares you?
Spiders, snakes and sharks.
One song that makes you the happy?
Beautiful Tonight by EC.
Do you have special talent or play an instrument?
Don’t play any instruments, not for lack of trying. Special talent, can’t think of any unless the gift of gab fits.
What age did you stop believing in Santa?
I remember it clearly, 5 years old told my mother Santa wasn’t real and I was to old to take naps.
Favorite place you’ve traveled to?
I fell in love with St Petersburg, Russia. France is second.
Can you sing?
Very badly but it doesn’t stop the rock star in my mind.
Favorite Book and why?
Bible, you learn something new every time you read.
If you could live anywhere where would it be?
I haven’t traveled the world yet so that’s hard to answer. Probably right here in USA, Home of the Free.

A blue ribbon for a relay race in third grade.
