#FeelingGrateful by Chinwe Nnadi

This is Day 2 of the 30-Day "Feeling Grateful" Blog Series on Grow Forward & Flourish. My heart is full of gratitude because of individuals like Chinwe Nnadi, who raised her hand and said YES! I'll be a part of encouraging others to embrace the power of gratitude in their everyday lives by sharing reasons why I feel grateful. Thank you Chinwe!

Chinwe Nnadi describes herself as a self-loving free spirit with an uncanny ability to combine fun and seriousness effectively. I choose to love, learn and impact the world around me in any way that I can.  I’m interested in Human behavior, Strategy, Innovation and almost anything new. She works at AIESEC Nigeria and lives in Lagos.

Here are a few reasons why Chinwe Nnadi is
#Feeling Grateful…

1.     I'll never stop being grateful for a whole lots of things...
 God's Love above all else. He knows me in a way no one else does and He still Loves and gives me His Blessings every day.   My Family- They provide the roots that keep me grounded. Without them, I would have no anchor. They are my #SupportersClub always and forever.   AIESEC- AIESEC Is a lot of things to me so it’s a bit difficult to summarize why I'm grateful but... It gave me an opportunity to make "real life" mistakes and learn in an experiential manner. It also gave me one of the best kinds of exposure a young and curious mind can get. And it taught me the concept of Learning. Now Learning is one of my personal values.  

2.    My favorite way to say thank you…

Varies depending on the individual I’m thanking. I could send a heartfelt and very descriptive mail/note/post to the individual or give one of those silent but #StraightFromTheHeart hugs where the other person just understands the magnitude of my gratitude without words.

3.    The best thank you I've received

A birthday mail from the least expected person. It was one of those write ups where you don’t recognize the major cast even though it’s you. It humbled me and made me realize that people everywhere are always watching us, even when we don’t know who or where they are.

4.   When I was a kid, I didn't realize how grateful I should have been

For the kind of disciplinary upbringing I got from my parents. It formed the back drop that prepared me for every experience I've had in life.

5.    (BONUS) The attitude of gratitude…

Serves as a reminder for me to always count my Blessings and realize (cos it's really easy to forget) that I have come a long way (even if I haven't gotten to where I feel I should have gotten to) AND it ensures that I remain humble always.

8 Reasons You Feel Emotionally Exhausted

If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.
~ Oprah Winfrey ~

How often have you thought, “Where’s my get up and go? I’m tired all the time. But it’s not my body that’s tired. It’s like it’s me that’s tired inside my body.” So many of us are caught up in an energy rat race”, according to Mira Kirshenbaum, author of The Emotional Energy Factor: The Secrets High Energy People Use to Beat Emotional Fatigue. She says, “The demands of life, if not managed, will exhaust our emotional energy.” Emotional energy is defined by Kirshenbaum as “the preconditions for everything we care about. Everything worth doing that’s difficult gets lost without it. Marriages fail when we run out of the emotional energy to reach one more time across the divide of anger and silence. Dreams die when we lack the emotional energy to hang in there in the face of all the obstacles.” In my blog post, Simple Steps to Mana…

Managing Your Greatest Workplace Frustration

~William James~
If I conducted a survey on your job and it consisted of this question: Out of the following two issues, which would you say is the greatest source of your workplace frustration: “people issues” or “job tasks”, which of the two issues do you believe would receive the most votes?
