First, thank you so much for reading my recaps. Whether you’ve read since Episode 1 or you randomly came across this to find out who won (Emily) and who’s the next Bachelorette (Ashley H., as revealed on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE), I’m sincerely thankful you chose to click here. Don’t be shy in coming back around. I have posts about everything from The Bachelor recaps to owning a dog to traveling across the country. So, thank you.
If you missed Monday’s season finale, I bet you’ve already discovered who won and who was sent home without a rose. The lovely and classy Emily was the last contestant standing when it was all said and done. I’d like to wish Brad and Emily heartfelt congratulations and hope they beat the odds by staying together, getting married, and actually living happily ever after. They are no different than us because we all deserve more than one chance at finding the person that makes us feel most alive. Whether you are single or not, I do not know, so if you are, don’t give up on chasing someone out of your league. Don’t settle. If finding true love is one of the best decisions a person can make, settling for “good” is one of the worst because it’s not your potential. Don’t settle for what you know you can get. That’s crap. Believe that there’s someone out there better than the dream. Hope for a miracle. Stay positive in the pursuit even when you’re home alone Friday nights. There’s absolutely no reason, not age, not location, not history, not doubt, not mistakes made, no reason to think you’ve missed your chance. The best advice I’ve heard is this…
Don’t worry about finding the right person, be the right person to find.
Genius. So those of you who aren’t married yet, don’t give up. I won’t either. But in the meantime, be good. I should say something to married people, too: I hope you’re with your favorite person in the world and please, please beat the odds. I know this wasn’t really a recap, so click here for a professional and awesome blog about Episode 11.
