"Courageous care partners recharge with self-care, striving for peaceful pinnacles
in patience, persistence, and positive 
changes, knowing when to conquer and when to comfort."

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!)
