Live for the GOOD

One of the main questions I am asked- just the other day and on a regular basis really- is:

"How were you able to trust again? How were you able to remarry again? How are you happy again? I don't think I could do it!"

I've written a few different posts about trusting and overcoming... you can find a few of those here and here and here... but the other night, I heard a commercial that explained my jumbled (often times very wordy haha) thoughts in about 60 seconds.

It was an All State commercial (of course I must credit the professionals who said it so eloquently- that's why they get paid the big bucks and I don't :) that said:

"There are man-eating sharks in every ocean, but we still swim. Every second, somewhere in the world, lighting strikes, but we still play in the rain. Poisonous snakes can be found in 49 of the 50 states, but we still go looking for adventure. A car can crash, a house can crumble, but we still drive and love coming home

Because I think deep down we know: all the bad things that can happen in life, they can't stop us from making our lives good. PEOPLE LIVE FOR GOOD."

I think this is how it's all been possible for me; I want to live for the good. And so that's what I'm trying to do. 

In the meantime, I'm learning to deal with the hard, the bad, the sad, the scary (whatever it is) as it comes.

Please watch this- even if it is an insurance commercial- it is SO touching.


  1. Oh Jacy. Thank you. i am dating again and it's terrifying. i'm an absolute mess. i don't know how to trust and it's disheartening. i'm sure trying and luckily have a very patient guy friend right now. But i have no clue what i am doing. i appreciate this post and the links back to ones that i have read already, but obviously need to read again.

  2. Awesome, Jacy, again. You are a hero to me!

  3. Seriously amazing. You are! And so is this commercial! Thank you:)

  4. So beautiful, Jacy. Thanks for sharing your heart.
