In our lives we are faced with decisions that we have to make everyday. And most of the time the way we make up a decision is we weigh the positives, and the negatives and make our decision based on that fact. But sometimes, some of the decisions that we have to make in our lives are not that simple, especially if the word LOVE has anything to do with it. This particular story is about making such decisions, when we decide to do something just because our hearts feel right, even though your logic and reasons tell you otherwise.
Christian & Melvina were both born in Surabaya. But when Christian got his job, he moved to Ternate. If you don't know Ternate, it is an island in the Maluku Islands (Moluccas) of eastern Indonesia. Although separated by miles apart, nothing can stop them from falling in love with each other. And though they know the challenges of having a long distance relationship, still kept their love for each other strong.
Another big decision came at the time when Christian proposed to Melvina. Christian asked Melvina to move with him to Ternate after the wedding. It was definitely a big decision for Melvina, she was asked to move out of her comfort zone to be with the one she loves deeply. After a careful thought and deliberation with her mom, Melvina finally followed her heart and said yes to moving with Christian to Ternate, leaving her friends and families in Surabaya to start their new family together in the Eastern part of Indonesia.
One thing I've always believe, is that when everything else seemed like a blur and you're not sure which decision to take, always follow your heart. Once again congratulation to both of you. Here's to making a heart decision!
