☆ fortunate 幸運な
Would you describe yourself or your life as fortunate or lucky? I would say that I am living a fortunate life because I am able to continue doing the work I love, while living in Australia. I am able to be close to my family, and to care for my mother as she gets older.
Here are some example sentences:
He was fortunate to survive the accident.
Tokyo is fortunate in having so many great places to eat and drink.
It was fortunate that the meeting ended early.
She is in the fortunate position of being able to choose which job to take.
How about you? Are you living a fortunate life? In what way are you fortunate? Can you write or talk about it in English?
