We're back from Christmas vacation and slowly easing into this year's writing schedule.

We're starting off with a New Year message to everyone who might need it. :)

2021 šŸ‚ With Love

Hello!

Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for making 2020 bearable through your poems/stories.

Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for making 2020 bearable through your poems/stories. Despite everything that has happened, this was still a good year, because we got to meet each other and share our passion for writing.

Speaking of writing, the first third of the year is usually a busy time, so stories might come out only once a week until further notice. Posting will be every Thursday or Friday.

Thank you again, and I hope you have an amazing, prosperous, Happy New Year!

Thank you again, and I hope you have an amazing, prosperous, Happy New Year! šŸ‚ Ann Sepino (annsepino.mystrikingly.com) P.S. Please enjoy the open letter in the next few slides.

My darling,

My darling, This is my letter to you, to remind you of how special, worthy and cherished you are. To remind you of how much you do matter.

My darling, This is my letter to you, to remind you of how special, worthy and cherished you are. To remind you of how much you do matter. If not to the closest people around you, then to someone on the other side of the world.

You must have had a hard year. A hard decade. Perhaps you lost a person that's dear to your heart. Or two. Or four.

You must have had a hard year. A hard decade. Perhaps you lost a person that's dear to your heart. Or two. Or four. Perhaps you found yourself drowning in a sea of expectations and insincere praise from onlookers. Perhaps you had to wear a smile, even though all you wanted to do was cry.

Perhaps you needed to stand your ground and stay where you are, even though all you wanted was to run away.

Perhaps you needed to stand your ground and stay where you are, even though all you wanted was to run away. Perhaps you had to live with someone who acknowledges only your flaws. With someone who loves blaming you for everything and has almost influenced you to do the same to others.

With someone who drinks or gambles or ignores your privacy. Or squanders their money. Or smokes.

With someone who drinks or gambles or ignores your privacy. Or squanders their money. Or smokes. Perhaps you were laid off or didn't get that promotion you were aiming for. Perhaps you failed a test or turned over a lousy project.

Or decided to decline a promising career that would have only driven you to taking your own life.

Or decided to decline a promising career that would have only driven you to taking your own life. And perhaps you're thinking that you shouldn't feel sorry for yourself. That other people have it so much worse. That you should just shut up and bear it.

My darling, don't be so hard on yourself. Don't just shut up and bear it. Instead, find a quiet corner and a cuddly pillow. Hold your pillow tight, and against its softness, scream your pain.

My darling, don't be so hard on yourself. Don't just shut up and bear it. Instead, find a quiet corner and a cuddly pillow. Hold your pillow tight, and against its softness, scream your pain. Let your tears and outrage and pain frow freely, and pretend that your pillow is my palm or my breast.

Know that as you cry, I'm there crying with you. As you lay bare the broken pieces of your heart, I'm there doing my best to keep them all together so you don't lose any of them.

Know that as you cry, I'm there crying with you. As you lay bare the broken pieces of your heart, I'm there doing my best to keep them all together so you don't lose any of them. I'm there holding you and wishing that your falling tears will bring you peace of mind.

Other people might have it worse, but it doesn't mean your trials are insignificant. A problem seemingly small to some might be unsurmountable to others.

Other people might have it worse, but it doesn't mean your trials are insignificant. A problem seemingly small to some might be unsurmountable to others. We each have our own demons to face, and these demons hurt no matter their size.

If you think that no one loves you, know that you are loved by the world. The air loves you because it breathes life into your lungs. The sun loves you, because it shines for you every morning.

If you think that no one loves you, know that you are loved by the world. The air loves you because it breathes life into your lungs. The sun loves you, because it shines for you every morning. The earth loves you, because it cradles every part of you. Every blade of grass, every flower petal, every seashell and star and cloud loves you, and they are yours to love in return.

If you think that you are alone, know that someone somewhere out there is saying the same. There are more lonely people than you think, and they're waiting for you to find them.

If you think that you are alone, know that someone somewhere out there is saying the same. There are more lonely people than you think, and they're waiting for you to find them. Maybe they're even trying their best to find you, so at the very least hold on for their sake.

If you think that there's nothing left to live for, then at least live for me. You are precious because you are part of my world, even though we may be strangers.

If you think that there's nothing left to live for, then at least live for me. You are precious because you are part of my world, even though we may be strangers. Trust me when I say that your tenacity fuels me to be just as strong. Trust me when I say that your enduring gentleness, despite your circumstances, inspires me to become a better person.

Trust me when I say that your kindness, understanding and forgiveness towards those who have hurt you is more outstanding than any accolade anyone has ever received.

Trust me when I say that your kindness, understanding and forgiveness towards those who have hurt you is more outstanding than any accolade anyone has ever received. It takes a certain kind of bravery to remain strong and kind and gentle despite the cruel realities we face. And you, my darling, are brave.

You have walked the trial of fire and managed to stay true to yourself, which only proves that you are worth every day of your existence.

You have walked the trial of fire and managed to stay true to yourself, which only proves that you are worth every day of your existence. And if you think you haven't been strong or gentle or kind, know that it's not too late to learn. Even the latest buds on a cherry tree bloom eventually.

You shall too, and when you do, I will be there gazing at your majesty.

You shall too, and when you do, I will be there gazing at your majesty. Together, we will show the world that being broken doesn't mean we are weak. Being broken means that we have new pieces of ourselves to rebuild with.

Being broken means that we have been through what we deem as our worst, which means that from here on out everything else will be better, if not the best.

Being broken means that we have been through what we deem as our worst, which means that from here on out everything else will be better, if not the best. Lastly, I only have these to say:

Dream big.

Dream big. Work hard.

Dream big. Work hard. Learn well.

Dream big. Work hard. Learn well. Be kind.

Dream big. Work hard. Learn well. Be kind. Live humbly.

Dream big. Work hard. Learn well. Be kind. Live humbly. Stay healthy.

Dream big. Work hard. Learn well. Be kind. Live humbly. Stay healthy. Have faith.

These seven tenets have served me well over the decade, and I hope that in some small way they become you guiding light. Don't be afraid to face the coming year with this message in you heart.

These seven tenets have served me well over the decade, and I hope that in some small way they become you guiding light. Don't be afraid to face the coming year with this message in you heart. Remember that I'm always here for you, waiting patiently until you come back with a smile on your face and happiness on your wings.

All the best of luck, my darling.

All the best of luck, my darling. With love,

All the best of luck, my darling. With love, Ann
