Why I Love My Simple Life

Confucius was a man that I probably learned about during some English or History class and just did not pay attention when the teacher was talking. But, he was a man important enough to teach about. Confucius does not play a huge role in my life. He is not what makes my life simple, yet extremely complex.
“Life is simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” -Confucius

Sunsets.
I read somewhere that small towns have the best sunsets. This is true. If there is anything that I learned while growing up in a town where the school enrollment is less then 300 it’s that no matter the weather, the sky will be pretty (unless it’s grey because it’s about to snow). Sunsets make me happy. They remind me of messy paintings where the artist can’t choose what colour they adore more.

Art is great. Art is fantastic, and I could stare at art for hours. That is all.

Candid Photos.
The best type of photos. When people capture a moment that you were unaware of what was going on and you were just having fun and being happy, this is what I love about life. These are the best types of photographs because they capture moments entirely.

Basketball.
Through the stress, blood, sprained ankles, pain and tears, I still love what basketball has done for me. Although it’s a sport that can drive me crazy and has probably caused more stress and heart ache then necessary it has given me friendships and taught me lessons.

Dutch Women’s Field Hockey.
Yeah. That’s about it.

Bus Rides To And From Away Games.
I don’t know why but this is always the best part of any season, mostly basketball season though. It is my favorite part. I don’t care if  we have to sit for two and a half hours, I love the atmosphere and I love the girls I’m with.

 Diabetes.
It sucks, but it shaped who I am as a person. It helped me to become more of a human being. Like Bethany Hamilton said, “I can embrace more people with one arm then I ever could with two,” I have had the opportunity to meet more people because of my dead pancreas.

McDonald’s Sweet Tea.
Please, I do not want any ice, because then I won’t get any of the tea.

I also enjoy listening to Justin Bieber, and detoxed water.
