In the event you are struggling to set an intent, know they can also be impactful beyond your immediate day-to-day life. One photographer followed the travels of Syrian refugees seeking home and safety. He is sharing their stories to remind the world that, for millions of humans, the search for a new life is a reality. His work will help many stay present with those struggling so far away.

Make an intent for peace.

Make an intent for kindness and compassion.

Make an intent to help others find home.

Make an intent to trade anger and violence for patience and understanding.

Your reach may extend over oceans. It may stop at your front door but that doesn’t mean it’s unimportant. Be an agent for good in a world that desperately needs it.
