The Essence of FursuitingHello FotoFriends!The Essence of Fursuiting by FotoFurNL
It's been a long time since I wrote a journal… it's been quite a while since I was active anyway! It's about time I tried and change all that laziness into something productive!
Now this journal is not so much an update on what keeps me busy these days but more of an extended story of a very, very special photo submission of a moment in my life that I'll never forget.
The moment I am talking about is the life-changing hug you can see below.
Now let the story begin;
Little more than a year ago I was taking on the challenge of getting my drivers license. My instructor was an awesome guy and was interested in photography just like me! During the many hours we spent driving around we also spoke of fursuiting a lot because I just love to tell people about what keeps me busy and the things I enjoy doing.
During one driving lesson I spoke of the idea of fursuiting in the local zoo "Diergaarde Blijdor
WATCH our Words, Actions, Thoughts, Character, and Habits.
We recently watched a portion of the movie "The Iron Lady" (2011), about the late Lady Margret Thatcher. In it, a doctor asks how she feels, and Lady Thatcher replies "Why is everyone so concerned with how we feel these days? We should be concerned with what we are thinking. Why not ask about our thoughts?" She then goes on to tell him by using the following, most excellent quote, as delivered exquisitely by the actress Meryl Streep:
“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become actions;
watch your actions, they become habits;
watch your habits, they become character;
watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
This quote is attributed to Mr. Frank Outlaw, Late President of the Bi-Lo Grocery Store chain. It dates back in other forms to the turn of the century, and (W)ords (A)ctions (T)houghts (C)haracter (H)abits form the word *watch*.
We should strive to improve ourselves, starting with our thoughts.
