"The generous soul will be made rich, and he who refreshes others, will himself be refreshed."
The world is a different place these days, it's hard to fathom how quickly things have changed in the last few weeks and how many lives have been affected by it all. Each new day seems to come with its own set of new challenges and changes. However, I'm here to encourage you that it's not a time for worry, anxiety or fear of the future, instead we can refocus our ambitious pursuits and invest some energy into things that often get neglected due to our otherwise busy schedules. I understand some of us are more able to shift our mindset than others, just like some of us have stronger immune systems than others, but the current state of the world is undoubtedly affecting every single one of us. Despite the hardships that have arose out of the changing economy and social restraints, I can't help but notice the silver lining in the midst of it all.. I ultimately believe that humanity has a strong foundation at its core, in crisis, these strengths show through a many number of ways, from increased generosity, to inspiring gratitude, to the sacrificing of ones own needs, to the voluntary service of others, literally millions have shifted their priorities to care for others and watch out for the more vulnerable among us in these evolving times. Of course, there will always be some exceptions, but as a general consensus, we are uniting as a global movement, that can and will overcome the adversity that has spread itself through out the world.
Still, there are people who are genuinely struggling at the mercy of this evolving situation, and in the same breath, there are some that can do something about it..
So, one way we want to provide opportunity to bless others and encourage the spirit of generosity in this time is with our new Thurston Photo GIFT CARD product. Available in various amounts starting at $50, our gift cards offer an opportunity to brighten the day of the art lover in your life. Whether it's a friend, a family member, a colleague that you haven't connected with in a while or even a stranger that you've never physically met, sending them an online Thurston Photo Gift Card is a sure way to spark gratitude and appreciation in their life.
We can all find a reason to feel down and out in a time like this, but let me remind you to count your blessings, not your burdens, focus on what you CAN do, not what you CAN'T do, and remember that we may not necessarily be able to change the environment around us, but we are certainly in control of the way we respond to it, and that, can make all the difference.
We hope this encourages our fans and collectors all over the world to be generous in this season, and to go out of their way to put a smile on someone else's face.. it might just be the one thing that gets them through!
