Fortune as a noun means chance or luck, good or bad, but change to the adjective fortunate and suddenly it is related to good. What’s good?
All and none.
What do they mean to you?
Does the size of your bank account define your wealth, or is it defined by whether you’ve ever gone hungry? Wealthy, to me, will have a different meaning than to you.
Is it defined by your career, or how many followers you have on your blog? Is it defined by reaching all your goals, or never giving up even when you fail?
Are you unlucky because you never win raffles, or are you lucky because you are loved?
Is it unfortunate we’ve gotten so much rain, or fortunate the snow has melted? Is it fortunate you have a mop to clean up all the mud being tracked into the house you are fortunate enough to have?
Are you happy, healthy, blessed . . . ?
Perspective. That is the key here.
Where do you set the bar?
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” Matthew 6:21
I. Am. Fortunate.
