My Dear Light Workers,

Another year will soon be over and it seems to me each year goes by faster than the one before. I would not credit that to my chronological age because my philosophy on “age” is quite unconventional and maybe one of these days I’ll share with my readers. For now, I’d like to focus on what this festive season mean to me.
Treasure had it allâ€”a husband who loved her, two beautiful â€œbonusâ€ children, a successful small business, rewarding volunteer work, and the icing on the cake, a glamorous life that took her all over the world.
But on a fateful Monday morning in 2009, her world turned upside down. She discovered that her loving husband â€¦ loved only his secret life. She learned that for the past twenty-four years her marriage was a lie.
Wounded and betrayed, Treasure fought to fi nd the strength to start over. From her darkest hours, she summoned the courage to look within and start the journey of transformation her soul craved. Her insufferable pain propelled her to a new life as an empowered woman living her authentic life by assuming full responsibility, practicing self-love and forgiveness. Most of all embracing a massive paradigm shift from victim to victor.
