Something that I've been thinking about lately/related to things that have come up in real life and have been on my mind.

Do you feel like you are blessed?

Where do you see blessings in your life?

How do you celebrate or give thanks for blessings?

Do you ever feel guilty, if you feel blessed?

Do you consider those who are less fortunate/who experience certain kinds of hardship any less loved by God, or any less blessed?

Do you feel grateful for being blessed, if you feel that you are blessed?

Do you ever fear losing anything that you consider a blessing, or do you feel like you will be blessed in other ways, even if you lose something precious to you?

1.
Do you feel like you are blessed?
A. Yes

2.
Where do you see blessings in your life?
A. Many, but one is that I have survived things that should have killed me,
starting at birth.
Another is that I have a purpose for being.
Not going to elaborate.

3.
How do you celebrate or give thanks for blessings?
A.Try to live life to the fullest despite my woes and appreciate the simple joys of life.

3.
Do you ever feel guilty, if you feel blessed?
A.Of course not.
Everyone is blessed, they simply do not recognize it.

4.
Do you consider those who are less fortunate/who experience certain kinds of hardship any less loved by God, or any less blessed?
A.Of course not!
And to be blessed does not require any deific being.
In fact to see it as a punishment reward thing indicates that one feels superior and is entitled to material wealth/rewards from some elusive deific being,
and as many religions have done,
entitles the well off to abuse and even kill the less fortunate.
That kind of god indicates a hateful false deity who would hurt even newborns.
Hardship can be a blessing in disguise.

5.
Do you feel grateful for being blessed, if you feel that you are blessed?
A. Of course!

6.
Do you ever fear losing anything that you consider a blessing, or do you feel like you will be blessed in other ways, even if you lose something precious to you?
A. Loss happens, that is an aspect of life,
and to forever bemoan it is counterproductive to living.
Compensation happens.

Do you feel like you are blessed?

Most definitely.

Where do you see blessings in your life?

Everywhere.

How do you celebrate or give thanks for blessings?

I try not to take anything for granted.

Do you ever feel guilty, if you feel blessed?

Nope.

Do you consider those who are less fortunate/who experience certain kinds of hardship any less loved by God, or any less blessed?

No. We all have our Lessons to learn.

Do you feel grateful for being blessed, if you feel that you are blessed?

I try to be.

Do you ever fear losing anything that you consider a blessing, or do you feel like you will be blessed in other ways, even if you lose something precious to you?

Change is inevitable, but if you resist, you block the flow.

I have been through hell and I have been through heaven.

Yes, I am blessed, with all of my hells and all of my heaves.

Could really not be one without the other.

Wouldnt trade my life with all of my hells for anything in the world.

I celebrate by recognizing my blessings both good and bad.

I dont feel guilty cause I have experienced, as I said as much if not more hell than heaven.

Nobody is less loved by God or anybody, we all walk our paths. In my experience it has been the folks worst off in life that are the true angels.

Grateful? Ofcourse, like I said, my hells are my blessings as well.

I live day to day, I have lost much, and I have gained much and I dont worry, bout anything.

What will be will be.

Pardon me for being unoriginal, but I read hippichick's answer, and all I have to say is "ditto."
