Lead A Blameless Life - Prov.19.1

Today I was struck by the word "blameless... Without fault; innocent; guiltless; not meriting censure."
Prov. 19:1 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse.
Prov. 20:7 The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.
Prov. 28:6 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless than a rich man whose ways are perverse.
Prov. 28:18 He whose walk is blameless is kept safe, but he whose ways are perverse will suddenly fall.
I thought and wondered, is it possible to live a "blameless" life? I think so. I also believe in the importance of following up on any situation in which there could be blame. For example, if I am to blame, then I believe it calls for repentance, confession and forsaking. If others are to blame then it requires forgiveness. These are the ways that I see a man or woman walking in a "blameless" way. This could also be described as walking with a "clear conscience".
I want to be a righteous man who leads a blameless life. You?
