Thankfully we have a more positive idiom after last week’s ‘to suffer a crushing defeat‘ example.
Image from the movie Free Willy
Note: The word in the image above next to this week’s idiom is 終於（终于 zhōng yú ）which means “eventually” or “at last”.
wǒ zhǐ xiǎngyào yīge zìyóuzìzài de shēnghuó
All I want is a leisurely and carefree life
This idiom can be broken down easily into two words that are also in very common use – 自由（zìyóu） which is “freedom” and 自在（zìzài） which is to be “comfortable” and “unrestrained”.
