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.
