Manisha SareenFor those of you who know me… truly know how crazy I am about Bollywood. When I sleep I dream of Bollywood, and when I wake up I daydream of it. It is truly what makes me happy. Speaking along those lines, there was one Bollywood movie where the male actor unexpectedly changes the dynamics of a very unhappy family, and helps them become happy again. I have always thought this would only happen in a movie, but through the past few months I have understood that movies too define reality. One such person that greatly resonates with this character in the movie is Priyanka Niranjan. She is like an elder sister to me.

I mean I didn’t wake up one day and tell myself that I would meet her, but it just happened. You know when you step out of your house, and unexpectedly run into someone that you haven’t spoken to for a long time. Yes, exactly in that same way. At the time I met her, I had no idea that she would be such a valuable friend. I have seen her go through many obstacles in the time I have known her, and she has faced each one of them with a smile on her face. You must be wondering how can a person I just met a few months ago become someone I call an elder sister.

When you meet someone like Priyanka, you realize many things. Amongst these things the one thing I understood from meeting her is that life is truly precious, and no matter what the circumstances… keep smiling. When you meet someone who is constantly smiling, and making you laugh..life is amazing! Below are a few fun facts I came across in regards to smiling…hopefully they make you smile:

Fun Fact 1: When you are smiling, those around you will more than likely smile as well! 

Fun Fact 2: At a distance of 300 feet people can see when someone is smiling. How interesting is that? 

Fun Fact 3: Yes… more muscles are used in frowning than in smiling….So why not smile? 

Fun Fact 4: If you smile while you are in a bad mood, you will without a doubt become happier! 

I have attached the link to the website from which I got these fun facts, if you are interested in reading the other 11 facts don’t hesitate to utilize that link!

Priyanka, I have dedicated this blog post to you, because you deserve it. Continue smiling, and becoming successful. I am sure the people that meet you in their lifetime will truly be lucky.

For everyone reading this blog post, I just want to tell you that it is essential for you to recognize these types of people in your own lives. Ask yourself one question: Which are the people that truly make me come alive? This will help you understand which people in your life are most valuable to you. One last thing before I end this post, please don’t forget to smile today 🙂
