Belly laughs

As time passes I learn to accept my defeats with my head up.
Not every smile is genuine, and not every touch is filled with love.
Having people surrounding me doesn't always mean I am rich, and today is all I have because plans have a way of falling apart, and nothing is certain.
I've learned that even when I am cold the fire can burn me.
Words are not contracts, and I am beginning to recognize that laughter, real, deep belly laughter can chain me to a soul more than the touch of a hand.
I don't know how to sit still with a quiet mind, but I have learned to be easy on myself.
I have learned that I am strong, and I can rise, and just like a star is created from a cosmic storm I can become even stronger, and brighter despite.
Life is hard, genuine people are few.
Cherish the belly laughs

Accept defeat then get back up

The past 6 months have been hard on me. I have been tired, overworked, and learning about this life, and the people in it. Today is day one of prioritizing what is important to me correctly. Family, fitness, school, work. In that order.
You are only defeated if you don"t get back up.
