“The process to push social change and healing starts with releasing emotions hidden within your soul. The Be ReZilient culture can be the anchor to help you get to the next step and help you develop your blueprint to healing and restoration.” -Denise Williams, CEO
The Story behind Be ReZilient is one of overcoming loss, self-doubt, anxiety, depression, and being a survivor!
Throughout my professional career, I found satisfaction in helping others overcome challenges as they pursued their personal goals. This desire to help others fueled my interest in Human Services and Leadership and Accountability, motivating me to obtain master’s degrees in both concentrations. Mental Wellness is also close to my heart. Mental wellness had been swept under the rug. Still, recently, with the pandemic, social unrest, and other issues plaguing our nation, mental health is finally getting the stage it deserves and being discussed. Historically, it has been seen as a weakness. As a black woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, professional, professor, and a few more titles I didn’t list, my mental wellness is something I use to put on the back burner for years to care for others. It took many years and life-changing moments to understand my unhealthy habits regarding mental wellness and create healthy ones to survive and enjoy this road called life.
Before I could even acknowledge the depth of my resilience within my own life’s journey, I have to take a deep look into myself. I had to gain an in-depth understanding of how the brain works, triggers, and strategies for open the door to healing; I would be selfish not to share this knowledge with others; hence, Be ReZilient was born.
Be ReZilient is spelled with a Z for one reason only; it truly depicts the word’s meaning. When spelled with an “S” artistically, it seems as if the roads in life are smooth, implying life is easy. However, we know that is not true. Life is hard, and there are many times that you hit a barrier a few times before you can move on to the next thing. The “Z” indeed shows the path one must take to become REZILIENT!
I hope the Be ReZilient experience is the anchor to helping you get to the next step in your journey and gives you the courage to continue to strive to live a ReZilient life!
