“Ga kepikiran buat pindah dari Makassar?”


I know, guys. Been thinking about this a whole week, and praise God He gives me more than I needed.

Being uncomfortable does not mean that you are in wrong path


This is just another battle to equip you with improved skill

Or another course to take you to the next level

Or another piece to complete the puzzle
Just be held

Wait for the time to come

And when you look back

You will smile with no regret
