In thinking about what women really want out of life I guess I can only speak for myself then see if anybody else can relate. This is the second part to an article I wrote entitled What Do Women Want published at Christian Women’s Online Network a few weeks ago. That article came from the perspective of many women I have talked to over the years. See if you agree with me on these 15 points.
1- I want to grow mentally, spiritually, and creatively every day.
2- I don’t want to grow old on the outside but I know it’s inevitable. I try to slow it down with hair color, face moisturizer and drinking lots of vitamin water ahh but alas I turned 47 yesterday.
3- I want to make decisions about my life based on what I want but when there are others involved, decisions have to be made based on how it affects everyone.
4- I want to continue to live out my God given dreams without the feeling that I can’t finish it. Confidence!
5- I want a man who will die for me. I have one.
6- I want my children to be filled with pure joy. I don’t think they are… yet. Praying about that one.
7- I do not want to be a people pleaser but a God pleaser. Pleasing God is so much easier than pleasing people. He just wants me to be me they want me to be someone I’m not.
8- I want support from friends and family in the ventures toward my dreams. I do and will continue to support them.
9- I want respect. You’ll always get it in return from me and usually even if you don’t give it to me.
10- I need love to survive. Unconditional love. Not a love based on what I do right or wrong, just love no matter what. A love similar to God’s love. His love can’t be earned. He loves me no matter how bad I screw up or how awesome I do something, it never changes.
11- I want my kids to fulfill their God given dreams. Well first they need to find those dreams, and then follow them. I will help them succeed any way I can.
12- I want my husband to know real love. My love is real but insufficient for him. I want him to know God’s love fully and completely.
13- I never want to feel like I just exist. I’ve been there done that and life without purpose is no life at all.
14- I want to be an encouragement to others. That may present itself in different ways to different people but everyone needs to know they are valued.
15- I want chocolate. It’s that simple. Give me chocolate and you have a friend.
What do you want? No really. In the comments section tell us one or more things you want even if it’s the same as on my list.
