Good Hands for the Good Life

This post brought to you by Allstate. All opinions are 100% mine.

I always tell my kids  a story of my life when I was growing up.   I told them that they are so lucky because they  have many things that I never had when I was a kid, not even a toy.  All of our toys are  made up from what we see in our surroundings.  Despite that though, I have a very memorable childhood as my parents were always there for us.  We did not have any fancy things like kids   has nowadays but we were contented and happy.  

When I was about 14 years old, there was a  super typhoon that hit our  region and  the said typhoon created a massive tidal wave.  It wiped  away our  house and  all the  house in our coastal area.  We lost everything, all that was left is the clothing that we were  wearing that night.  It was a  very tough times for my family, we did not know what to do because in my country,  government does not really help  much  compared to the government here in the US.  In God's grace, we managed to come back up and started all over again.  I did not  go  to school on that school year but the next year, a family  offered to help me.   I do believe that God works in a very mysterious way.  You just need to have faith and believe in yourself and everything will come  to place.  We  all have fears  and doubts in doing things but  if you persevere and do your part, it's possible.

I find a website where you can  share your  inspiring stories through the   Allstate Good Life .  This is a perfect place to share   your  struggles in life and how how you overcome those obstacles that you  faces.  I love AllState's motto, "Good Hands for the Good Life".   In the comment section, would you share  what  obstacles in your life you have went through and  how you manage to  turn it around?  Inspire us and share your stories.
