Hi there!

Welcome to trying to live my life with my sanity intact!
First of all, thanks for stopping by! This is my first blogging but have been a fan of reading blogs for about a year. Today, I thought "hey, everybody and their dog has a blog so why not me."  I'm not really sure where to go from here, and I am really horrible with technology. Eventually, I will figure it all out so please bare with me and come back again to visit.

Before I end my first blog post I will tell you why I decided to name my blog trying to live my life with sanity intact. I am a 23 year old college student who got diagnosed with depression at the age of 17 and recently was diagnosed with ADHD, and I thought a  blog would be a great way to meet new people and connect with people who may have similar mental problem themselves or know someone who does Plus, BLOGGING IS CHEAPER THAN THERAPY! .I am not defined by my mental illnesses and I have many other interests in life. I love food (I am a vegan), animals, my family and friends, and just life in general. I'm not sure what direction I will be taking this blog in, but I hope you will join me for the journey.

Oh yeah, I guess my name would be nice for you to know too. My name is Lisa, nice to meet ya!

Here are some quotes that inspire me, so maybe they will inspire you.

The future depends on what we do in the present. - Mahatma Gandhi 

 Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.
-Jawaharal Nehru

 Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

These last two quotes remind me to not let my depression define who I am.
