What’s in a word?

Hummmmmm… let’s see.

How about this word – work.

Or – responsibility.
Responsibility: the quality or state of being responsible: as a : moral, legal, or mental accountability b: reliability, trustworthiness

How about this one – rest.
Rest: repose, sleep; specifically : a bodily state characterized by minimal functional and metabolic activities
2) a: freedom from activity or labor b: a state of motionlessness or inactivity c: the repose of death,
3) a place for resting or lodging,
4) peace of mind or spirit

Or, my personal favorite for the next little while – vacation.
Vacation: a respite or a time of respite from something : intermission

2) a: a scheduled period during which activity (as of a court or school) is suspended b: a period of exemption from work granted to an employee

3) a period spent away from home or business in travel or recreation, 4) an act or an instance of vacating.
