Blessed is another way of saying that the goodness of God is with you. There is a type of thought that says blessing is the result of good behavior and Christian practice. Jesus looks at life differently; through his famous teaching on a hill, he indicates that God's goodness is with those who are in a place where others often think there is no blessing at all. Blessing is with those who mourn, who are meek, and in the midst of conflict. For the people who believe they are apart from God's blessing because of their circumstances in life, Jesus beckons you to look again.
