Time for a Big Girl URL

It's time to try something new. I've been blogging for nearly four years now. It started with a little Blogger blog called Life After Web. Then I added a Wordpress blog called On a Lighter Note. Then I decided two blogs were too much, so I combined the two into the Wordpress location and retitled it Life After Web.

Two or three years ago I bought the URL Since then I've used it as a playground to try out a little web code here and there and for the past year it has been sitting there as some sort of odd landing page with no real purpose.

I never bothered to move my blog there because wouldn't let me redirect my old URL and I was afraid that you, my wonderful friends and readers, might think I got lost. If all goes well, a redirect is now possible and working.

Life is changing a lot for me these days. That being said, it's time to make some changes to my blogging as well, so I am finally putting to good use the URL I purchased so long ago. It's time for a big girl URL.

From now on, you will be able to read this blog at I hope you'll come visit the new space and let me know what you think. I've imported all my old posts, so you'll still see the same content you've always seen, just in a shiny new wrapper. Please be sure to update your bookmarks and RSS feeds.

The design may still change some and the platform may also (for the time being, it's in Blogger), but this is what is right for now.

I hope you will find the new space to be a comfortable place for you to visit, like the living room of a good friend where you know you can prop your feet up and restore your soul. I'll get the hot cocoa ready.

Confirm Your Humanity

I type my email address into the box and click. Another screen pops up: “Confirm your humanity.” I check a box and it is done. Humanity confirmed. But I wonder what am I doing in my life today to confirm my humanity?

What It’s Really Like to Have Anxiety

“People who need help sometimes look a lot like people who don’t need help.” -Glennon Doyle
I can’t say with any certainty that I am viewed as having it all together. I have, however, been complimented for my ability to remain calm or to calm others. In my days as a project manager, it was a strength often highlighted in my performance reviews. One supervisor actually used to mistake my calm attitude for a lack of understanding the urgency of the issue, until he learned I very much understand the urgency, but can’t address it if I get frantic.

During my application process to become a Hospice volunteer, the coordinator told me after speaking to my three references that she had never seen a single word used so consistently to describe someone. What word is that, I asked. “Calm. Every single person commented on how calm you are.”

Calm. That is a marvelous state.

Imagine how it must feel to be known for being calm and to hold a diagnosis of anxiety. It sometimes feels that my entire sel…
