If Person X says that they're "blessed", does this have to imply that they believe they've received a blessing from some higher power? Or could it just mean they feel "fortunate" or even just happy with their circumstances?
If Person X was an atheist, would it be an "inaccurate" statement if they said they're blessed? Given the current usage of the word, would it be an acceptable way of communicating that they're simply happy with what's happened to them?
This question assumes Person X is communicating via writing, so pronunciation of the word "blessed" isn't a factor. There's also no context supplied by Person X (they don't state their beliefs, and don't divulge further after the one sentence where they say they're blessed). What Person X is blessed about is some kind of project, which has no religious affiliations.
