Intelligent people write things down,if they didn’t,it never happened

Where is your record? Wrote , write,write! I am so impressed with free blogging sites such as WordPress. It allows me to look back at my years gone by. This is officially my 3rd year writing this blog! It brings me great to return to my previous blog posts! I am impressed with the quality of my thinking and writing! Writing these blogs are extremely enjoyable for me.

Write stuff down. From your “to do lists” to your goals, write it down. I prefer pen and paper,but the sticky note on my computer works just as well.

I encourage you to start your blog!!

Are Non Profit Organizations (NPOs) supervised by the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU)?

Recommendation 8 of the Financial Action Task Force mandates that counties assess the adequacy of the laws and regulations with respect to Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs). NPOs are susceptible to being used to finance terrorism. In 2019, the   Non-Profit Organizations Act No. 7 of 2019 (NPOA) was enacted and is in effect.

By virtue of this piece of legislation, NPOs now fall under the ambit of AML/CFT/PF regime in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) is the supervisor of NPOs that earn more than $500,000 in gross annual income.

How to predict the future !!!! by Antoinette Sydney

Your subconscious mind is a silent observer of your thoughts,words and action . Your subconscious mind does not understand negative commands . Check your thoughts hourly , conduct a weekly audit to see if your thoughts are negative or positive .

Develop positive affirmations that are easy to remember . Purchase the beads used in meditation and repeat your chant at least 108x. Honestly believe that it will come to past ,eliminate all doubt in your mind. See yourself graduating with that degree ,imagine your spouse congratulating you on that new business .

An important ingredient is “feeling”. You must feel that you have already received what you have asked of Source.

Your subconscious mind will now bring it to reality . It is now important for you to avoid all negativity ,go on a news fast . It is done.

Be careful of who you bring in your life : Heartless Lovers

Here is what to do when you meet someone!

Present a challenge to them, let them earn your trust . Give it time. We have grown used to instantaneous messaging, and we have erroneously accepted this as communication. We no longer get  to know our partners , we ‘talk’ for a minute, then we take the relationship to the next  level. We render ourselves irrevocably vulnerable! In the event that we are dating a sociopath, this person may lose interest after feasting on your tender flesh. You cannot undo the deed at this point,what’s done is done. 

There was a loud scream that disrupted the still of the night. My mother ran to the kitchen for  table salt to chase a frog that was relaxing on the walkway. Her racing heart vibrated in her chest and she was gasping for breath. Naturally, I peeped to see the commotion. She attempted to sprinkle some white, table salt on the frog, she missed. And the frog and I laughed. Then my mother emptied the entire contents of the jar of salt on the ground. The frog hopped away, rolling his big eyes at her. My mother was relieved that she nevertheless chased the frog away. The frog on the other hand, was irritated at the inconvenience. My mother then informed me that we were out of salt. Although I was displeased at the wastage , I had to lecture my mother about another life lesson. 

I told her that we should distribute our salt in direct proportion to the sugar that we receive. We ought not to give all of  our salt to the first person that we meet. Most times that person is just bored and is looking for entertainment, this is equivalent to saying that “nothing serious” is desired. Do not inconvenience yourself for any temporary person. Treat your salt with the value that it deserves. Your salt should not be dashed upon every attractive person that you see.Give them one grain of your precious salt and see how they react. See if this person respects you as a human being and not as a salt machine. Wait to see if they are sweet to you, this is what I mean by offering you sugar. Observe how they address the gas station attendants, pay attention to the tone used when they address waitresses as restaurants. Notice their actions and compare these to their words and ensure that there is consistency. I appreciate the fact that it is your salt and you can distribute it as you please. I am just cautioning you that after you waste all of your salt on someone who hops out of your life, you will have no taste.
