Tip#1257: The Recipe For Resilience, Part 63 – Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

This is Day 538 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

This week I was excited to design a new series of graphics to promote my Content Creator services! They show fun examples of my work with various film and food related clients and my goal is to attract new, awesome clients for the next chapter of my life and career. 

At the same time, designing these examples reminded me of certain clients that treated me badly. That’s when I knew these were old, emotional blocks stuck inside me and needed clearing in order to move forward. These were painful memories that anyone could relate to and still ruminating of times someone had been mean and hurtful to them.

So I’ve been putting into practice the life coaching tips from Steffi Black Coaching I mentioned in the previous blog post about doing “What If?” statements. She also reminded me of the Hawaiian self-love affirmations of Ho’oponopono: “I’m sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you, I love you”.

This process is about taking responsibility for everything that’s happened, sending yourself more compassion as well as sending love to the person that hurt you by saying their name with the four affirmations. All these healing practices are about healing my past and inner child and were synchronistically mirrored in a new film I just saw! 

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) 

The superhero, action film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, is about Shaun/Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) who is forced to confront his childhood traumas and his immortal father, Xu Wenwu's (Tony Leung) leader of the Ten Rings organization. This highly entertaining movie is filled with thrilling fight scenes, special effects, mythical creatures and strong performances by Liu and Leung as well as Awkwafina, Meng'er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu, Benedict Wong, Michelle Yeoh, Ben Kingsley, and Tony Leung.

I was so blown away with how much I loved this movie! The script, tone, pacing, characters and overall cinematic experience was so satisfying. I also believe the abundant Asian representation will have a positive affect as role models in our global culture. I was also moved by many emotional moments that mirrored my own relationship with dad growing up and memories I know I need to heal. The movie hero would be an inspiration for me with his courage and perseverance. 

One fight scene I loved was one that transformed into a dance. The profound beauty of this conflict/partnership was a reminder that all my own past conflicts with clients or people were a necessary part of my growing as a person. They were playing a role for me to learn from and ultimately have to let go of. 

We could choose to dwell on the painful memories of the past. Or we could choose to see them from a higher perspective and take responsibility for the thoughts and feelings ruminating in our minds. Find a film today with a movie hero that mirrors your experiences. Let them inspire your own inner strengths and resilience to heal and move forward!
