I love Thanksgiving because it invites us to focus on what I believe is one of the most important ingredients for a good life: Gratitude.
Because of my desire to be more, do more, and have more, I sometimes lose my connection to savoring and appreciating the present moment before moving on to tackle the next goal and attain the next achievement.
My husband and I recently added a new relationship ritual that’s gotten me to be more present. Each evening, we share three things we’re grateful for that day. As a result, I feel more confident and open. I’m more likely to connect to my own joy and aliveness. And I experience greater appreciation, patience, and compassion for myself and others, and sense a positive shift in my marriage as well.
My clients regularly make my gratitude list. Particularly in light of the past few challenging years, I’m deeply grateful to you, my dynamic and supportive network, for making my work possible and deeply rewarding.
If you’re up for it, add a daily gratitude practice to your day and let me know how it shifts your experience.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

"It's easy to speak passionately about the projects I lead—but much more difficult to talk about myself. Charmaine gave me the tools and strategies to articulate my vision and value, not just the tasks I perform."
