I’ve been working hard the last few weeks to hone in on the mission of Meep Moment. It’s been exciting and sometimes overwhelming to actually sit down and plan something that has been quietly calling me for years. It has always been a dream of mine and now that it’s a reality, the pressure is on.
But as I freak out over here, I keep coming back to this concept:
Meep Moment is about simplicity.
So I’m taking that to heart and focusing on just two avenues for now — meaningful thoughts + simple tools.
Essentially a blog, the meaningful thoughts will typically be short stories and points to ponder from my every day life. They say that experience is the best teacher and I hope that by sharing my experiences and thoughts with you, you may gain some insight into your own life and also feel a little less alone in this world.
Let’s rewind a bit… fun Nina fact — I was an Algebra teacher for six years. During that time, I loved to create worksheets for my students to help them make connections between the Algebra concepts we were learning and their everyday lives. Worksheets provided a simple way to break down the concepts for them.
My purpose for Meep Moment is to help others create a more heartful, meepy life. I truly believe with all of my heart that we all can experience Meep Moments every day, no matter our circumstances, and it can be really simple if we let it be. This is where meepsheets come into play. Meepsheets are simple worksheets to help you make connections between your awesome self and the world.
Weekly Reflection Meepsheet
First up in the meepsheets series, we have the Weekly Reflection Meepsheet. I adapted this weekly sheet from the daily diary I began a few months ago. It usually takes me less than 10 minutes to complete and it really helps to set the tone for the kind of week I want to have. It’s just 8 questions and it touches on reflection, mindfulness, and intentional goal setting for the upcoming week.
I try to do mine every Monday to set myself up for a great start (but feel free to do whatever works best for you!) Here are a couple of ideas on how to implement it into your weekly routine:
- Print out a bunch of copies, hole punch them, and put them into a binder that you can use every week.
- Print out just one copy for now and try it out. You can tape it up near your workspace or bed to remind you of your intentions for the week.
- Transfer the questions to some type of diary or note app on your phone. I personally use the Grid Diary app, but Evernote or the Notes app on your phone works, too.
The goal is to adapt this into your weekly routine so that it adds value and is simple to do. You know you best so whatever works best for you, do that!
Here are two versions for you to use (and please feel free to share these with friends!)
It’s the beginning of a new month and what better time to start a new, simple habit that will make your weeks full of meepiness!
Thanks again for all of your support and I’m so excited to have you here on this journey with me!
