Anyone that has ever met her knows what a bright light she was on this earth. She was gentle, but strong, sweet, but sassy, worldly but pragmatic, a woman of great faith and certainly the love of my life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Heart failure is a chronic progressive condition where the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently through the body. Rita Owens was on medication, had a defibrillator implanted in her chest to prevent heart attacks, and a strict diet of low salts and fats with lots of vegetables. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ”She had struggled with a heart condition for many years and her battle is now over... I am heartbroken but know she is at peace. Thank you for your kindness, support and respect for our privacy at this time. Much Love, Dana Owens (aka Queen Latif‎ah), forever Rita Owens’ daughter.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Latifah mentioned to PEOPLE in a previous interview in 2015 that when she was not in California, she was at her mother’s New Jersey home helping with caregiving duties. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She broke the news to PEOPLE about her mother’s death and impact on her life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I watched her come through so many things, ups and downs, hospitalizations – I mean really being in the ICU for that matter – you know, going through tough times and watching her come back and bounce back and still maintain this sense of humor, and love and drive and will... I just love her so much more, I respect her so much more. She really just gives me hope for life and the world.” Latifah said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ R.I.P. the great Rita Owens.

Dating, Friends, and Gucci: 32m I've seen it with my own eyes, women are very shallow. I'm short, ugly, and broke so l dont date but my good looking friends get the hottest women and the most women. geee I wonder why VoteReply 25m . Have you considered that the r.. 19m How many short, ugly, broke women have you asked out? 3Reply 8m why would I do that Vote Reply <p><a href="http://candiikismet.tumblr.com/post/161964122616/karadin-anti-capitalistlesbianwitch" class="tumblr_blog">candiikismet</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://karadin.tumblr.com/post/161962781063/anti-capitalistlesbianwitch-its-mustard-gucci" class="tumblr_blog">karadin</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://anti-capitalistlesbianwitch.tumblr.com/post/161962201901/its-mustard-gucci-justneckbeardthings" class="tumblr_blog">anti-capitalistlesbianwitch</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="http://its-mustard-gucci.tumblr.com/post/161911741753/justneckbeardthings-lmaooooooooooooooo" class="tumblr_blog">its-mustard-gucci</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://justneckbeardthings.tumblr.com/post/161887312339" class="tumblr_blog">justneckbeardthings</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>🤔</p></blockquote> <p>LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO</p> </blockquote> <p>I mean, really.</p> </blockquote> <p>They did a ‘test’ where women and men agreed to meet up for a date online, but the subjects would have images on their dating profiles of models (people not themselves) </p><p>Every time a man showed up for the date, saw the woman didn’t match the picture, he just turned around and left. </p><p>When women showed up to the date, they still greeted the man, sat down and had lunch, and sometimes the male partner even got a kiss goodbye. That should tell you everything you need to know about men and women and appearance.</p></blockquote> <p>That’s interesting.</p></blockquote> <p>Actually what it is it’s total bullshit. Those videos were heavily edited and I’m quite sure they took out all the unkind female responses and all the nicer male responses. Showing someone’s disappointment at being directly lied to is hardly proof of that shallow they are. Speaking as a woman I can say firsthand that women can be shallow as fuck. Stop with the bullshit generalizations.</p>

Comfortable, Memes, and Mondays: I REFUSETO BE IN THE RAT RACE Is is possible for a “normal person” to escape the rat race? Normal people live comfortable, normal lives. They like it that way. There’s nothing wrong with normal. Except when it pertains to the rat race. - If you’re a normal person who’s tired of getting one raise a year (if that), tired of sitting under-utilized at your cubicle, tired of sitting over-utilized at your cubicle, tired of being TIRED, normal isn’t going to save you. So which options do you have? You only have three options at this point: ✔️Marry someone rich. ✔️Inherit a bunch of money. ✔️Sell your organs (which is illegal) Now, let me give you a few tips to do it the right way: ✔️Live like you don’t know when (and where) your next pay check will come from. Audit all your spending habits to see where you can cut back. And I mean REALLY cut back. ✔️Believe you can actually make money on your own without having to show up and sit in a cubicle for 40 hours a week. Most of us stick to the rat race not because it’s the only way we know, but because we think the alternative just isn’t feasible. ✔️Work outside normal working hours. When 5 o’clock strikes, the day is not done. There are still 7 hours left. Weird people know they need to use your time wisely if they want to exit the rat race. ✔️Wake up on F*cking Monday morning with a purpose!Weird people understand Mondays are no different than any other day of the week. Mondays are another opportunity to put in the work to escape the rat race. And guess what? Tomorrow is Monday. Are you ready? - ratrace success lifestyle millionairementor

Children, God, and Lgbt: LGBT LGBT UNITED UNITED onticat earthyqueer: superyouandinvisibleme: "You can't be asexual because you don't reproduce by self-replicating" is basically the same argument as "Your nose can't be running because it doesn't have feet." oh my god this is going on my list of fave asexual posts I'm so sick and tired of this stupid a$$ argument people use when they're trying to enforce their narrow-minded biased POV on you. "You're queer and it's wrong because bla bla bla you can't reproduce". I mean really? Why being so obsessed with reproducing to begin with? Are you even humans or some primitive rodents caring only about endless and mindless breeding? Especially when our planet is already overpopulated as it is by our species? What kind of sh*tty argument is this?? Moreover, why are they bring up reproducing argument every time as if it’s most important or most relevant or most humane feature? Every f bacteria capable to reproduce, it's not some great achievement. On the contrary, people who shouldn't reproduce in the first place - cousins for instance - stubbornly and stupidly making babies and when it turns out their children have disabilities they’re shocked and devastated all of a sudden – despite the fact that they were warned about such a scenario repeatedly!
