Thoughtful Thursday #3

So, it's that time again. Time for Thoughtful Thursdays. This weeks thought comes from an newsletter I subscribe to from author Holly Lisle.This question had me really thinking. I hope you will think a little and let me know your answer.


What single thing in my working life would make me stand up and walk out of my job today, right now, even knowing that I would burn that bridge and never be able to go back?
Well, for me this question is pretty easy to answer. Working in healthcare will make you see things in an entirely different way. Ethics and morals become much more important when peoples lives hang in the balance. It was while doing my pediatric rotation that I knew, without a doubt, that I could never work in pediatrics. Why, you ask? A lot of people would die to work in pediatrics...and I am supremely happy; because it means, I DON'T HAVE TO!
I have given birth to three children; one with special needs. And I love these children dearly, so much that I am completely unable to deal with any type of child abuse. I knew after only a few weeks into my rotation that I would never be able to keep my mouth shut in regards to the well-being of any child...much less tiny babies. 

So, I suppose my answer would be...knowledge of any abuse of children that was not investigated or unpunished would be one thing that would cause me to walk out of my job with no questions asked.


  1. Good question and great answer! I agree with you! Mine is different though. =)

  2. Talk about a hot question. Since I'm a teacher, I think I would agree with you. Abuse of children that was not investigated or punished with make me want to leave immediately.

    Thanks for stopping by today.
