Spoiler Alerts in Life

Pretty much the end of the world happened. I accidentally found out who Ben picks in The Bachelor this season. It might have been the cry that was heard around the world when it happened.

I usually do everything possible to avoid spoilers. I love the anticipation and waiting game of finding out what will happen at the end.

That got me thinking…why do I hate spoilers for TV but all I want are spoilers in life. All I want to know is what is going to happen. How is this going to end? What is the verdict going to be?

I don’t want to wait. I don’t have patience. I want to know NOW.

But that is not how life works. Nor really should it. I enjoy the not knowing in the TV world. The savoring each second of the show. The focusing on the now. I enjoy the entire episode, not just the end.

So yes, a silly concept and example (although, come on, best season of The Bachelor ever, right?! I think every woman in America is in love with Ben!) it helped me put a little perspective on my life.

Enjoy the moment Megan. Stop trying to figure out what’s going to happen. Accept the adventure that is right now.

PS – Fun Megan life fact. I almost applied for The Bachelor this season. I had my video script all planned out but just decided the timing wasn’t right in my life. Just thought that was a fun tidbit to share. Ha! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I don’t watch The Bachelor but of course know all about it. I would have loved it if you’d been on it and I definitely would have watched.ReplyCancel

  • I used to purposely seek out “Bachelor” spoilers through Reality Steve, etc., but now I also avoid them like the plague! It’s much more fun to be surprised, I think… even if, during the “After the Rose,” we get the dismal news that they’ve already broken up. Ha!

    Ben is very handsome and seems like a really nice guy, but I don’t find him as intriguing as some of our previous “Bachelors.” Still, I love this show — can’t quit it!ReplyCancel

    • You used to seek them out! Ahhh! I’m so opposite of that! And how you feel about Ben! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haha. He’s my favorite bachelor yet!! But I go for nice and not mysterious. Such a good show.ReplyCancel
