A Testimonial from Mike Huntley, Fall 1989 Graduate
Rocky, Toni & Char,
Iím not sure youíll remember me but I went through your program back in Nov, 1989. Someone recently asked me about Daybreak and I was glad to see that you are still going helping to change the world one soul at a time.
Itís hard for me to believe that it has almost been 25 years since I was banging that stupid towel on your floor and channeling ďThe BossĒ but somehow all of that worked and changed my perspective and my life. You helped to access all that I needed to head down my path and that was to find my feelings and feel them. My wife, Mary (Redeman) Huntley went through Daybreak shortly after we met in 1993 and we were married in 1994. Our first daughter, Hope was born in 1995 and the younger one, Frankie, was born in 2000. Mary was diagnosed with leukemia 2003 and was treated at UCLA. She went into remission after her treatment and stayed cancer free until 2009 when it came back. She was again treated at UCLA and unfortunately passed away in 2011.
Luckily Mary and I had been through your program and were able to cherish everything we had up until, and through, her death. Iíve been all around the world and met hundreds of wonderful people but Mary was the most amazing person I have ever met and I was lucky enough to live with her for almost 20 years. I wish she was back every moment but I wouldnít change anything we had. I truly feel that I am the luckiest man in the world. The love we have is something that most people donít get for 5 minutes in a lifetime.
It seems that much of the great things that have come my way have been achieved as a result of the tools you taught me while I was at Daybreak. I have my feelings and that is all I need for from those I have created a love within my family, and beyond, that will carry me through whatever comes. It has not been easy, and I donít expect it to be for if it is a life well lived it cannot be achieved without much work. Through it all, my foundation for what I have achieved was built at Daybreak will always carry me through what lies ahead for me.
I hope your participants realize how lucky they are just to be in your room (Iím sure they donít feel that way on the Friday night of the 3 Day!), but they truly are the chosen ones for some reason and it will become obvious somewhere down the line. Where appropriate, please feel free to share my story with those that feel they canít make it.
Thanks again for everything you have given me and I wish you all, and the program, continued success.
