This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Allstate. All opinions are 100% mine.
In my early 20’s, I was struck with an illness that almost killed me. I lost weight, I could barely get out of bed in the morning, and I ended up with an extended stay in the hospital. It was suspected that I had Crohn’s disease, however this was not the end of me or my story.
After the Doctors and Nurses figured out what was the root of my problem, I received a blood transfusion, appropriate care, and good nutrition. I started to watch my diet for triggers, got proper sleep, and learned to be aware of my body. I am extremely lucky to have caught my disease in time, and although I still have it I am now married, have 3 kids, and lead an active lifestyle.
I realize that bad things can happen at anytime, but I would rather not dwell on what might happen, but enjoy all the good that is happening right now in my life. I choose to focus on happy things, like school being let out for the summer, and the upcoming 1st birthday of my youngest son in July.
Allstate also believes in this type of thinking. Allstate’s “Good Hands for the Good Life” is new and different for an insurance company. It has a voice of optimism and celebration vs. fear. The Allstate brand commercial tells the story of how there are risks everywhere, but we as people don’t let it hold us back from making our lives good. Allstate is an insurance company who works everyday to help build more good in the lives of their customers. To learn more about this new idea, visit Allstate Good Life.
Yes, I could have died, but I choose to focus on living! I like that Allstate focuses on the positive versus the negative as well!
What “Good Life” stories do you choose to focus on? Is it family, school, or accomplishments? I would love it if you would share!
