Queen Latifah, Life, and Love: Queen Latifah's Mother Rita Owens Dies From Chronic Heart Condition@balleralert mao Queen Latifah’s Mother Rita Owens Dies From Chronic Heart Condition - blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dana Owens a.k.a the great Queen Latifah, announced Wednesday that her mother, Rita Owens, has passed away from a severe heart condition that has been ailing her for more than a decade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It is with a heavy heart that I share the news, my mother, Rita Owens passed away today... 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.

Animals, Community, and Life: LTAG SOMEONE WHO WILL CHANGE THE WORLD *double tap* and TAG someone! 🌎If you’d like to make the world a better place, but aren’t sure how to fit it into your busy life, these ideas may help: ✔️Volunteer. You can find an organization within your community, or you can even volunteer online, through websites that will allow you to help for even a few minutes at a time. ✔️Small acts of kindness can go a long way in making the world a better place. Think about a time when someone did something unexpected for you that brightened your day. Weren’t you a nicer person for the rest of the day because of that? ✔️Foster an animal. This can be such a rewarding experience. If you’re able to part with the foster animals, they leave a hole in your heart, but fostering your next pet helps fill it, and you will be making a difference in the lives of so many animals in need. ✔️Make your purchases support your values. Every purchase you make supports something. You can either support a large business that exploits people, animals, and the environment, or you can buy items that are local, organic, or fair-trade. It’s hard to change this all at once, especially if you’re used to shopping for bargains, but try changing just a few of your purchases to make them better reflect the things you value. - Just a few things-ideas for all of you! Comment below your thoughts.👇 - betterworld success millionairementor

Confidence, Energy, and Friends: ASPIRE TO INSPIRE BEFOR WE EXPIRE Has anyone ever inspired you to change your life in a significant way that made you healthier, happier, or more fulfilled? If so, you understand the difference that positive inspiration can make in a person’s life. - 👀Would you like to know the simplest ways to inspire people and change their lives?👇 ✔️Care. If you can’t show a person that you genuinely care about them, do you think you will be able to inspire them? The answer is a resounding, “NO!” Show people you care in your words (“How are you today?”) and your actions (small acts of kindness go a long way). ✔️Be enthusiastic. The saying “enthusiasm is contagious” is common enough to be cliché, but it’s a cliché because it’s true. Reflect enthusiasm every day to the people you are in contact with and I’m willing to wager your genuine smiles, positive energy, and caring concern will be returned ten-fold. ✔️Earn trust. If a person you know and love tells you a secret, it stays between you and them. Trust takes a long time to build, but it can be destroyed overnight, so don’t take part in workplace gossip or unnecessary drama in your social networks so you can be a positive influence that people are unafraid to talk to. ✔️Reach for the stars. No one will be inspired by a person who resigns themselves to “reality” (such a dreadful place that sounds devoid of hope or personal growth in my opinion). Be ambitious, aim high, and never surrender if you want to inspire people that they, too, can accomplish anything they set their mind to. ✔️Stay true to who you are. A lot of us have a variety of “selves” that come out depending on the social situation: home, work, and friends all require a different song-and-dance. But putting on a different show for every group of people you encounter is super exhausting, and it’s certainly not a good way to inspire people around you. Would you place your confidence in a person who was so uncomfortable in their personality that they felt the need to pander to whatever crowd they were with? Embrace your true self without apology. - aspire inspire success live millionairementor

Google, Memes, and Relationships: MILLIONAIRE MENTOR INDNESS IS SO GANGSTER. If you are not a kind person you are probably asking yourself… What is kindness? 🤔 Well, a quick google research will give you the answer: Kindness is the state of caring about other people’s well-being and taking action to help make other people’s lives better and happier. BOOM! End of the post. Haha jk! Keep reading… - It’s great to be kind! Be good to people. Even the shitty ones. Let the assh*les be. Just be kind to everyone and you’ll sleep better 😉 - Let’s cut the chase, here’s how to be kind👇 - ✔️Get your intentions RIGHT. Having good intentions is the first step toward being kinder toward others and building positive relationships with them. Cultivating the right attitude about others is often necessary before we start acting in kinder ways. 👀 ✔️See things from other people’s perspectives. The practice of perspective-taking is a scientifically supported technique that we can use to increase empathy and kindness toward others. ✔️Pause when you get angry or frustrated. An important part of being a kind person is knowing how to control our anger and frustration. It’s natural for us to occasionally be upset with other people; however, we should try our best to channel these emotions in constructive ways, not lash out, yell, insult, or be aggressive. - And remember… Practice kindness in small doses. Kindness is like a muscle, the more we exercise it the better we are at it. 💪 - kindness success millionairementor

Fucking, Life, and Memes: LIFE IS GOOD BECAUSE I FUCKING MADEAT HAT WAY If you could just pick one or two (or a few more) habits to create in the next few months, habits that will have the most impact on your life, what would they be? 🤔 - Ready for the good life? - ✔️ Develop positive thinking. I put this first because I think it’s the keystone habit that will help you form the other important habits. Sure, positive thinking by itself won’t lead to success, but it certainly goes a long way to motivate you to do the other things required. ✔️Exercise. -It makes you feel better about yourself, and more confident. That leads to better success with other positive changes. -It relieves stress and gives you time to think, this leads to better mental well-being in your life overall. -It helps with creativity. ✔️Single-tasking. The opposite of multi-tasking, you’ve heard me harp on about this one as well. Why is it life-changing? A couple powerful reasons: -You’ll be more effective with your tasks and get more done. -You’ll be less stressed overall and (in my experience) happier throughout your day. ✔️Kindness. Yes, kindness is a habit. And it can be cultivated. Focus on it every day for a month and you’ll see profound changes in your life. You’ll feel better about yourself as a person. You’ll see people react to you differently and treat you better, over the long run. It’s karma. 😉 - Did you like this habits? Let me know in the comments below👇 - habits success millionairementor

Alive, Disappointed, and Future: DO GOOD THINGS AND GOOD THINGS WILL HAPPEN FOR YOU: Do good things to change the world! 👇Here are a few POWERFUL ways you can all change the world: ✔️Smile. As minuscule as it might seem, smiling can have a big impact. Not only does it impact you, but also the lives of others that are both immediately around you and that you come into contact with. People that often smile are happier and less depressed. In turn, they act differently than people that are always frowning and unhappy. If you think about a smiling person, you also realize that they’re likely positive about life. However, this also affects the people around you. When someone sees you smiling, they feel happier than when they see you angry, sad or depressed. In short, smiling is infectious. 😁 ✔️Be kind. It doesn’t take much to be kind to others. Yet, kindness seems to be more of the exception to the rule these days rather than the norm. Be kind to others around you. Don’t think the worst of them. Think the best. Even if people have disappointed you in the past, don’t lose hope in the future of humanity. ✔️Be present. We usually don’t live in the moment. We’re elsewhere, somewhere transported in our own minds. Physically we’re here, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually we’ve evaporated. When was the last time you were actually present? When did you look around with child-eyed wonder at all the miracles taking place? When did you last realize the fragility of life and actually stop to appreciate everything happening inside of you to keep you alive? 🤔 But, by being present, you can actually change the world. It will allow you to be more aware of your environment, people and things all around you. You’ll appreciate the heart beating in your chest countless times per minute, pushing the blood throughout your veins, or the lungs that are breathing in the air to keep you alive, or your kidneys, your liver, and everything else that allows you to live life in this world. ✔️Contribute. Want to make an impact on this world? Want to change it in small ways on your own? Contribute to others. Not just your money. If you don’t have money, that’s okay. Contribute your time. - Did you like the small list? Comment below and let me know what you think! - smile
