Today I want to share a new word as I add descriptors to my role as a care giver. As we maneuver through our journey, we will receive suggestions of how to do things – the implied message is do it this way, the right way. I am now heterodox, thank you, I’ll do it my way because that is what works best for me.
HETERODOX, an adjective, is defined as
- not conforming with accepted or orthodox standards or beliefs
- contrary to or different from an acknowledged standard
- contrary to conventional wisdom, a traditional form, or an established religion
- holding unorthodox opinions or doctrines
(I’m not a troublemaker but I am creative and
always open to new ideas—even my own!)
