Life on Pause: What do you do when “Play” is pushed?


So…your life has felt stagnant…on pause….But what do you do when that “play button” is finally pushed? How will you react?…

Slowly, my movie is returning to play…. Scenes are being added and new characters are being developed…and even new plot twists are coming up – but you know what? That is good, because it means I am close to living again..

For so long, the light bulb on my camera had been burnt out, but now it is shining a light again….Positive wheels are turning, I’ve created new aquaintances and developed new friendships. My light is being recharged with continuous solar energy – because the sunlight in this realm has been glorious…

There are still a few dark clouds on some days – because that old story hasn’t completely ended yet-but the second part of the series is already in action.

My  button is on play….I try very hard not to hit rewind and I am not quick to hit fast forward.

I will try to live in the here and now…Because a friend once told me-

“Today is all you may have…”

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
