And that doesn't mean that we don't have hopes or wishes that things are changed or shifted, but that to come from a place of love is to be in acceptance of what is, even in the face of moving toward something that is more whole, more just, more spacious for all of us. It's bigness. It's allowance. It's flexibility.
