The Flourishing Way was birthed in 2019 as the natural progression and evolution of my work-- my name is Mayra Porrata.
Throughout my career, I've worn many hats and worked in a number of fields including business operations, communications, marketing, education, and publishing.
Although I've been a journaler most of my life, in 2006 I began writing in an intentional way to both share and better understand what I was experiencing and perceiving-- as a mother, a caregiver, a small-business owner, and a teacher.
Like many of us who process externally it was through this process that I began to see more deeply and to feel-- it was a way to get out of my head and into my body-- of moving from the analysis of my grief into the full and embodied experience of it.
It's been said that to be fully alive we must die a thousand deaths--and I certainly have. To rise from the ashes of our own confusion, grief, and despair is no easy task, but one that is wholly achievable if you dare to believe in your own flourishing.
May you continue to rise and fall and to grieve and rejoice in your own precious life.
