  1. Am feeling your list babe God bless your wisdom so proud of you. I agree with most of the items on your list except for the red lipstick “mba” that one I disagree red lipstick doesn’t “werk for me” my sister. Lip balm or “ori” is better. Tks for reminding me about the journal it’s very important.
