Virtuous Women

Several months ago I had a lesson in church on being a virtuous women. That lesson really touched me because it got me thinking how it applies to me and I came to the unattractive conclusion that I'm really not in many ways. I know so many wonderful, amazing women that I would consider virtuous. I want people to think of me that way too. I mean not to be vain or anything but when people think of me it would be nice if they had good thoughts about me, ya know?
Women inherently have so many wonderful, beautiful, charitable qualities. I believe that it should be our goal to nurture these qualities and our potential. I'm definately not saying we need to be perfect (cause that's impossible) and ofcourse we'll continuously make mistakes but that's ok. All I'm saying is that if it is not our desire to be more virtuous and loving and charitable then we are not being true to ourselves. We are not living up to our potential or our God given gifts.
I give a big thanks and hug out to all you women that are trying to better yourselves and your lives and have written about it one your blogs. You truly are an inspiration.
Ok now I've written about it I have something to make me feel guilty if I'm not trying. :) This is the true desire of my heart and it's time to stop "just" talking about it.

P.S. I don't mean to sound preachy and everyone may not agree with this but it's my opinion.
