There are so many times in life when we focus on the negative and not the positive. I try to think about that daily and watch what I say and do to others especially my children. Not long ago I feared the future. I’m not sure it got in my way of living, but I thought about bad things that could happen almost every day. I think it stems from losing so many family members. My brother died 18 years ago at 28, my stepson 10 years ago at age 17 and my sister 7 years ago at 45. I just kept thinking who’s next?

Just last year our family moved five hours north to a new community, new schools, new neighbors. My son was worried about friends and school. I was worried about my kids getting along without the normal routines. But after being here a little over a year, we are loving life! My son has a ton of friends, loves his school, well as much as any middle schooler likes school. My daughter has made wonderful friends and has many playdates. She is looking forward to kindergarten. I have met great neighbors and friends and mommy gets to go on dates with the girls. Something I never use to do before.


Allstate Insurance has grasped this concept and is focusing on the optimism and celebration and not fear. Allstate’s new motto is “Good Hands for the Good Life”. They talk about how risks are everywhere, but we can’t let them hold us back from the good things.

Allstate believes that the notion of the Good Life is inherently social; it is already taking place in people’s natural social conversations and now Allstate has permission to join in because they are an insurance company who creates more good vs. take care of the bad. Check out Allstate Good Life.

  1. Yeah, these commercials are genius, I’m loving them. You wouldn’t think a commercial would give you much to ponder, but these really do, lol. My family is my good life story, I try to remember each day what a blessing they are 🙂

  2. It’s amazing how much a move can change live for the better, be it big or small. Just a shame it can be so stressful getting there sometimes.

    Such a great way to think of the positives rather than the negatives I think the negatives are just there so easily. x

  3. Moving can be quite stressful & I can see where having so many losses early in life could raise your level of worry. I’m glad things are working out well in the new town.

  4. Such a powerful message! We can’t live our lives in fear of what MAY happen. Otherwise we would miss all the joy is has to offer! We work every day to remember to cherish life and not worry about what MAY happen.

  5. I had Allstate for less than a year in 2006. I had some serious issues with getting a payout on a wreck, took months, and ultimately the lady from my new loan company for the replacement car had to call them because she was going to take my new car away because the old car loan hadn’t been paid. It was a hot mess and cost me over $500 in cell bills to get it worked out. I switched insurance companies and it’s been fine since. He told her he’d had the check on his desk for a month just hadn’t mailed it yet, and I think the person I got stuck working with just had bad customer service practices, but I get better rates elsewhere too

  6. What a great message, one I think we can all take something from, I know I can!

  7. I am so happy your move worked out well for your family! My Good Life Story happens each day I wake with my health and happiness to a husband and three kids that have the same.

  8. They are a good insurance but they wouldn’t insure my home when I moved 🙂
