Tip#1248: The Recipe For Resilience, Part 54 – Oxygen

This is Day 432 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

The sunny, warmer days of spring are here and they are definitely helping lift my spirits since we have entered another two weeks of stay-at-home orders for this long pandemic. Thankfully I continue to do regular walks in nearby woods for Forest Bathing/Therapy, exercise and vitamin D sunshine. And I continue to eat delicious and nutritious foods that you can see more on my Instagram channel: My Recipe for Resilience

Growing my Instagram followers of fellow foodies around the world has been helping me stay focused on being productive. All these new social media relationships from around the world (and their delicious photos) help feed my spirit (pun intended) on a daily basis! My dream is to somehow evolve this into a profession as a Social Media Influencer but not sure how yet. I just want to be of greater service during this pandemic and beyond! 

This uncertainty led me to a film I didn’t want to see because the trailer seemed like a big mirror for the isolation I was experiencing. But then a little voice inside me said to watch it for a message that would help feed my resilience. And I’m so glad I listened to that voice! 

Oxygen (2021) 

The French-language science fiction thriller film, Oxygen (French: Oxygène), is about a woman (Mélanie Laurent) waking up in a cryogenic chamber with no memory of how she got there and she must find a way out before running out of air. This gripping story is also a mystery film packed with unexpected surprises.

This film is definitely about isolation and loneliness with important life lessons in perseverance and resilience in how to deal with a dire and seemingly hopeless situation. I could identify with the heroine’s anguish and yet the cinematic message I received touched my soul deeply, gave me comfort and provided me a simple reminder to keep moving forward with hope and confidence. 

Without giving away any spoilers I will present this cinematic wisdom I received in the following two screen shots. I highly recommend seeing this film if what I’ve written resonates with you. 

Isolation is a major challenge for many people in today’s global pandemic. All we have to do is choose to persevere and embrace the the belief that there are answers to our questions of how to keep moving forward. Movies are one of the many tools you can use to discover your answers. Find a film today for some exciting cinematic wisdom meant just for you!
