Hellebuyck inspired for breakout season with Jets by self-help film

Self Help
The Winnipeg Jets goalie also had a secret strength in his breakout year: Extraordinary confidence.And the source of that confidence is a deeply rooted personal decision and commitment he made when he became serious about hockey at the age of 18, right before he started playing junior for Odessa (Texas) of the North American Hockey League in 2011-12.It was then that he saw "The Secret," a 2006 self-help, life-coaching and spiritual film by Australian Rhonda Byrne, who authored the book by the same name later that year, at the suggestion of his parents.Video: WPG@STL: Hellebuyck makes terrific blocker save"It's about believing in something to the point where you just naturally do everything toward that goal," said Hellebuyck, 25.

We “refuse to be silent any longer”: magic as self-care after Kavanaugh

Self Help
First, take a candle.Then, pour some salt into your hand. Then, keeping the grains in your palm, take a pen to write out a thank you to Christine Blasey Ford, the woman whose allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee — and now justice — Brett Kavanaugh, stunned a nation. Or, if you prefer, simply say, “I believe you.” It’s just one of the many quasi-religious rituals circulating the internet — particularly pagan and #resistance circles — in the wake of Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

(Photo: Screen capture/C-SPAN) (CNSNews.com) – Nikki Haley’s decision to resign as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. at the end of President Trump’s first term stoked furious speculation Tuesday, as pundits of all types wondered about her “real” reason for leaving, her future plans, and likely successors. The one key area of speculation Haley herself preemptively sought to quash was that she plans to mount a White House run in 2020. Not only did she clearly rule that out while sitting alongside Trump at the White House, but in her letter of resignation – obtained by the Washington Post – she wrote that while she expects to “speak out...
