Change Your Story, Change Your Life presented by Maren Martin, LCSW, CST

Monday, August 17, 6 p.m.

Our self-talk and the stories that we tell ourselves create a powerful force in shaping our lives.  They create our realities, our perceptions and our expectations.  Becoming aware of our “stories” is an essential first step in changing our experience of the world, one that we all have the ability to initiate.  Come learn how to use this simple but effective process to empower yourself, to step out of the passive or Victim role, and to create the life you want to be living! 

This lecture is part of The Next Chapter: Designing Your Ideal Life Program Series that covers health and well-being, planning for the future, following ones spirit and other interesting topics for the second half of life. This program series is sponsored by the Friends of the Monterey Public Library and the Monterey Public Library Endowment Committee.  This program is not sponsored or endorsed by Monterey Public Library or the City of Monterey.

All right, so by now you know that I can't disclose the movie of the month to you online, but if you come into the library and pick up a flyer you'll know it's the latest movie based on a popular book series by Veronica Roth about a girl who just can't conform with the rest of society. 

Come in for free popcorn and a movie after school and enjoy.

This month's snack "sand cups".  You can use many ingredients to construct this interesting looking sweet treat. The base can be pudding with a little blue food coloring, it can be blue jello, you can add a little whip cream or vanilla pudding for sea foam. The sand can be crushed cookies, graham crackers or even chocolate. And, of course, there's the party scene on top, completely edible of course (well, maybe not the umbrella, but you get the point ;) ).

There's so much you can do, and who knows what all ingredients I'll have for you to experiment with. Join us for Teen Chef. Supplies are limited. The earlier you can make it the better!

 

Time:  3:15 pm

Place: Community Room

Invited?: High School and Middle School students.
