Try to live it with happiness and hope that one day, the pain will go away.

Release All Your Grief

It’s okay to let your emotions show. You don’t have to try to keep it to yourself. Keeping it to yourself will make moving on harder to achieve. Just let the emotions flow. Just let the tears flow until you can’t cry no more. Don’t embarrassed showing what you truly feel. It is your right to express your emotions, we all emotional beings after all.

Talk To Your Family And Friends

When you lose someone dear to you, it is important that you gather the people who care. Surround yourself with support and love to fill the emptiness you feel inside.

Know That You Will Go Through The Stages Of Moving On

First Stage: Denial

You are in a trauma or a shock. Your mind can’t still comprehend what’s going on. In this stage, you will experience the confusion between reality and truth.

Second Stage: Anger

It’s normal that you get angry. It is part of releasing all those negative emotions towards with what happened. Know that you are in this stage but you can’t stay in this stage forever. Don’t let the anger consume you.

Third Stage: Bargaining

At this stage, you try to bargain with God. You ask if there could be a second chance. You try to change the reality but deep inside you, but you know you can’t.

Fourth Stage: Depression

Some people skip this process but for most people, they go through a series of depression. It happens because you cannot undo the past. You are here while that person you love already passed away, these thoughts will bring grief that leads to depression.

Fifth Stage: Acceptance

Wounds will heal eventually. Just give it time. When you finally get used to the situation and realized that there is still a life ahead of you, you learn to accept the truth.

Inventing Gadgets for Safety

To most of us, the story of Joe McKnight may already be familiar. And while some of us have no idea, we could actually learn a lot from his story. One of the lessons would be safety.

Today, we’re living in a techy world where almost anything can be invented as long as you know the right electronics lab to work at. The knowledge we have about technology, and the availability of materials and the right tools make it possible for us to create gadgets that we need and want.

Here are just some of the gadgets one can invent to be safe against perpetrators that endanger our and our family’s lives:

Alarm Gadget

pendant-necklace

Though still imaginary, once perfected, this machine can keep one safe from danger by calling for help. This device can send off a loud alarm so that the people around will be aware of the assistance needed by an individual in danger. This could be disguised as a necklace, a bracelet, or perhaps a gadget that can be attached at the back of one’s phone so they’re easily accessible (especially since most of us are on our phones every time we walk around the streets or get out of the house). This device can even be tailored to send off an emergency message or call to saved numbers of police stations while ringing its alarm. Anyone that has access to the new CFAT electronics lab can surely make one like this. It will absolutely be of great help to anyone regardless of age, gender, or skin color.

Defensive Device

If an alarm gadget isn’t enough, especially for one who can’t leave without a fight, then a small device which uses a loud air horn, a pepper spray, and a small camera can also be invented. The loud horn can alert nearby people about the danger, the pepper spray can keep the perpetrator disturbed even just for a while, and the tiny camera can video record the incident for evidence and reference later on. While bothered with the pepper spray, the victim can run away to a safe place. If there’s a struggle, the camera can record it. This device can be disguised as jewelry as well, or it could be easily accessed from one’s bag.

Tracker

This isn’t new, but it’s still worth discussing. A tracker can be attached to a child’s belongings, say a ring or an earring, so that the parents can check whether their kids are still in school when they should be. This will also be helpful in case (God forbid) the kid gets kidnapped by a stranger right after school hours. A tracker would be an excellent device to make the parents or guardians aware of where their kids currently are.

These are just some of the suggested gadgets one can invent and customize for their own safety. Don’t worry if you have no knowledge or experience about how to produce any of these. Morrison Tech is open to teach you about what you should know about creating. All you need is the eagerness to learn, the enthusiasm, the patience, and of course, a bit of cash to be able to access their tools. These devices may not guarantee your 100% safety, but having them with you can still give you peace of mind.

Advantages of a Personal Loan

Fast Transaction

If you’re out of time and you need to get cash quickly, then taking out a personal loan is an excellent option for you. Most of the time, you could get the money within 24 hours, which is perfect for emergency situations.

Minimal Requirements

One of the reasons why getting a personal loan is fast is because it doesn’t require too many documents unlike when you’re getting a car loan or home loan. Because of this, the processing time is shorter.

Multipurpose

These loans can be used for various purposes, including medical expenses, travel expenses, and more. You could even take out a personal loan to purchase the latest and best phone as of the moment.

Hassle-Free

Because you don’t need collateral, it’s easier for anyone to loan. Personal loans also don’t require any form of security, which means your assets will stay safe. It will also be helpful for those who do not own any assets like home, car, shares, etc.

Advantages of a Line of Credit

Fast Money

If you want instant cash, you can either use your line of credit loan, your home as collateral, or home equity line of credit (HELOC) to get quick money whenever you need it.

Lump Sum of Cash

If you need to obtain a large amount of money, you can choose to take out a line of credit loan. This works for homeowners with equity in their houses. Remember, the line of credit loan is the difference between the value of your home in the market and what you owe on the house. Just be wary of second mortgages.

Low-Interest Rates

line-of-credit

Unlike other kinds of consumer loans, the interest on the line of credit loans is more bearable. This is because you only have to pay the interest on the amount you use, instead of the whole available amount.

Interest Is Tax Deductible

Usually, the interest that you ought to pay on this type of loan is tax deductible. Remember to consult your financial advisor regarding this issue before you take out a line of credit loan.

Multipurpose

Just like personal loans, you can take out a line of credit loan and use the money for any purpose. With it, you can purchase your second home, buy a new car, send someone to school, remodel your house, pay medical expenses, travel afar, so on and so forth. Just remember to borrow the amount you need and avoid loaning more often than necessary. Remember to jot down your financial responsibilities and check the risks that come along with borrowing.
