jonfij Fresh cut 🏻... Today is a day about reflection, and reminding ourselves that our time on this earth has a beginning and an end. "It is life". Thankful for a lot of things in life, but thankful for life itself #rotuman #fiji #polynesian #gayguy #instagay #reflection #pensive #moments #instalike #thankful #ohana 6d

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 12 : дванадесет] "Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish." — John Jakes

In Bulgaria, I found a land of beauty. I saw beauty in the people I was with, the people I met, the places I visited. Every bud on my tongue savoured its flavours, its cuisine. So naturally provided, so freely given, I look forward to when I can see this beautiful place again. Blagodarya vi mnogo Balgariya. I will come back soon <3 #bulgaria #plovdiv #plovediv #rhodope #mountains #nature #naturelover #thankful #blessed #instagood #photooftheday

jonfij Taken on the day we came together as a family to end the year of mourning for my uncle, and the lifting of the "Tabu", a voluntary act of abstinence and sacrifice.
Emotional day, proud day. I touched my roots, my culture, and remembered the sands of the land from which I came.
As I stood next to my brothers and sisters, we recalled the memories of my uncle, their father, and the lessons he had taught.
I am thankful and proud to hold on to the other end of the rope that tethers me to my South Pacific island home; to still be able to witness and learn our traditional ways instills in me a feeling of deep gratitude and humility. Rotuma, Atu'motu Helava. Noa'ia e hanisi.

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 11 : единадесет] "We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing?" — Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 9 : девет] Favourite part of Plovdiv — the Old Town. A cobbled alley that makes for popular wedding photos. My mind still wanders back to this city, walking up to the ruins, perches on the ancient stone whilst looking over the spread of history before me. Ah Plovdiv, I will see you again soon.

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 7 : седем] — I got introduced to this so-frickin-delicious summer soup: tarator (таратор). Made from yoghurt, cucumber (grated🏼) and fresh dill, it's as refreshing as you can get on a hot summer's day. Garlic and walnuts are optional. Like love in a mug (bowl is also optional) #tarator #таратор #bulgaria #plovdiv #foodporn #delicious #summer #instagood #cantstop #wontstop #eat 2w

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 6 : Шест] "A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being." (James E. Faust)... Plovdiv, you beautiful city of much historical wealth. It was a pleasure to walk through your corridors of time and learn of your past, and your people.

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 5 : Пет] — "You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous." (Tony Hawk) Plovdiv, the European Capital of Culture 2019. Once known by the Greek name of Philippoupolis, this beautiful city has come through many strife and change. As you stand at the top, you can only but imagine a time long ago, breathing in the rich scent of history that dances on the wind and reaches up from the land #plovdiv #stariyagrad #bulgaria #city #instagood #photooftheday #thankful #beautiful #history 2w

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 4 : четири ] "We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust." (David Levithan) — towards the bottom of the Rhodope Mts en route back to main Plovdiv. Upside down, right side up, left or right, the Bulgarian landscape will still leave you feeling disarmed by her humble beauty #mountains #lakes #rhodope #bulgaria #reflection #natureguy #nature #instagood #follow #photooftheday #happy #beautiful 2w

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 3 : Tri] — "Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." — Marcel Proust.

jonfij [My Bulgarian Story | Part 2 : Dve] Inside of an old barn, taken through a crack in its planked walls. All was peaceful. Nothing but the rustle of a gentle wind through the trees, and the sighing of neighbouring mountains #thankful #peaceful #bulgaria #reflection #rhodope #mountains #love #summer #instagood #nature #naturelover 3w
