The Bible defines the ideal woman as eshet-chayil (pronounced aish-et chai-eel and translated as “Woman of Valor”), Hebrew for a virtuous woman as indicated in the book of Proverbs. Becoming this ideal or virtuous woman is a self-discovery journey that has no time limit. Everyone has their own journey, which they must make, and no two journeys are the same. Your journey is not someone else’s journey. Bearing that in mind, let’s look at some basic truths that we as women should strive towards.
At the end of my self-pitying episode, I realized I had to be doing something wrong. For one thing, I realized that I was not adequately managing my SELF.

But the long and short is that time doesn’t belong to anyone. Neither is it reclaimable.
