What's in a word?

Hummmmmm... let's see.

How about this word - work.
Work: activity in which one exerts strength or faculties to do or perform something: a: sustained physical or mental effort to overcome obstacles and achieve an objective or result b: the labor, task, or duty that is one's accustomed means of livelihood c: a specific task, duty, function, or assignment often being a part or phase of some larger activity

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.

What's in a word - a whole big bunch of stuff!
