My favorite word in the English language is the word set. I understand that it is not a long or intriguing word and you’re probably wondering why out of all 171,476 of the words in the English language I chose one so simple as set. This is because this small word has 464 different definitions making it literally the most meaningful word in the Oxford English Dictionary. This is symbolic of how to live life. Life can be short but it’s necessary to make it meaningful through how one carries oneself. It’s important to do what you want in life and make sure that it means something not to those around you, but to yourself. This is the way I want to live. I want to be able to pick my own definition for my life as there are many to choose from just like there are many definitions of the word set to choose from. It is up to you to define your life and the way you do so is your own choice. For example, if you want to be a hard working person with a physically demanding job, you can do that. If you would rather be an entertainer with the chill lifestyle made to please others, that is possible as well. So go ahead and pick a definition for yourself and let it define you as long as it is the definition that you want it to be.
