In life, there are good moments as well as the not so good.   Although we may have challenges and hardships, they don’t have to dictate our life!  We always need to remember and rely on the good!  That's what Allstate's Good Hands For A Good Life new motto represents.  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 every day to help build more good in the lives of their customers.

When I was pregnant with our son, I had morning sickness most the pregnancy and was hospitalized at 30 weeks for dehydration.  A normal ultrasound while getting rehydrated caused concerns and doctors were called in and from there another ultrasound.  My OB/GYN then had me travel to another hospital to see a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist and Genetic counselor.   With only 10 weeks to go our world was turned upside down.  There were concerns that our son’s skull was large and possibly not fusing correctly as well as his arms and legs were measuring small.  We declined all testing early on in pregnancy and now were being told that our son may have Downs, may have head issues and need to wear a helmet after birth, etc.  We were subject to many follow-ups at the Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist and Genetic counselor, as well as we had 9 ultra sounds at the end.  We were prepared for whatever God was going to hand us.

On June 6, 2007, a week past my due date, the doctors induced me.  It was unlike my first delivery.  Everything happened so fast.  Three pushes and out he came, the nurses rushed him off and I commanded my husband to stay with the baby.  Flash forward to today; my son will be turning six in a few days.  He is perfectly healthy, a little on the small side and has a heart murmur, but otherwise everything that we were told may show up at birth was wrong. 

He has taught us to appreciate every day.  Not to worry about the what-ifs, we can handle whatever is thrown at us.  Celebrate the little surprises, the little things and enjoy every day to the fullest!  With the bad can come great good!

Allstate believes that the notion of the Allstate 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.
