Live Your Own Good Life with Allstate

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Allstate for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
When I hear the term, "Living the Good Life", I don't think of money and riches, I think of the things that make life good for each of us. It doesn't take millions of dollars to be happy, and just because you have everything in the world doesn't mean you are happy anyway.

I used to be a single mother of three children.Rather than live a life of drama and violence, I elected to raise them on my own. Working long hours, while home schooling one child, with a toddler and baby at hand was enough to leave me exhausted every night. Though it was a struggle, we had food on the table and a roof over our heads, which is more than many could say. It wasn't easy, I may have been worried and afraid, but it was still something to celebrate, my being able to keep us all going on my own. Rather than feel sorry for myself, I chose to be happy that we could live peacefully, even if we didn't have all we might want. In our own way, we were Living The Good Life.
Through sheer luck, or divine intervention, I met the man that would become my husband. Being a single parent, it can be difficult to try and date anyone,let alone form a relationship. I was concerned that it wouldn't work, and hesitant to give it a try, but I did. The fact that we were able to work that out was amazing in itself. I may have still been struggling, but my Good Life was getting better.
Fast forward almost 6 years to now. I am no longer working those long hours or struggling to make ends meet. I am able to spend more time with my children and do things for my friends and family that I couldn't do before. Yes, I could go back to those 60 hour work weeks, and we would be able to do even more than we can now, but I am content. This is my Good Life, and for me that is more than enough.
