So, coming back to the series that I absolutely do intend to complete.... :D

D is for those magical moments that we all invariable live through.... Whether we want to or not, sometimes happy and sometimes not so haapy, some short and some really loooooong ones...

Dreams we have... And dreamers are we all...

While psychologists are yet to baffle the scientific details as to why we dream and how dreaming is important for us, there are millionzzzz and billionzzzz of interpretations of the signs and symbols that pop up in our dreams. Whether or not these interpretations hold true, is hard to say but we all do love to dream a little now and then. Hidden manifestations of desires, unfulfilled aspirations, fears of the future, regrets of the past, seeds of change, sparkle of magic - we are yet to fully comprehend the reality behind dreams. And it might take us quite a long time to do so, at least in reality... (Lot of round and round between reality and dreams there!)

So while scientists try to find out the reasoning behind these 'sleeping but awake moments' of ours, here's a collection of what I would say are one of the best quotes on dreams - not just to read by, rather dream by! ;)

Dreamy Quote #1

"Hold on to dreams tight and learn to fly,
They'll help you sail like a kite in the sky"

Dreamy Quote #2

"Free your mind of doubt and fears,
Dreams teach you to smile through tears"

Dreamy Quote #3

"Listen to what your soul wants to say,
 Dream on and let the magical music play"

Dreamy Quote #4

"Be brave, stand tall, have faith and smile,
Your dreams will become reality mile after mile"

Dreamy Quote #5

"Big dreams open the door to an exciting journey,
Waking up and taking the path is the only key"

Dreamy Quote #6

"Grow in reality with each passing day,
Dream each night of things that may"

Dreamy Quote #7

"Making it happen requires much effort,
Dream for the stars, you'll not land up with dirt"

Dreamy Quote #8

"Dreams guide us on - hidden passions they ignite,
Eyes closed or open, they stay along morning and night"

Dreamy Quote #9

"Follow your dream, make it come true,
Find your answers - rejoice a new you"

Dreamy Quote #10

"Of all the happiness in the bright mind of creativity,
There's nothing like a dream that is now reality"

Well! Well! Well!

Those great quotes by their amazing authors have surely inspired me tremendously today - dreams are not merely to dream by for sure! They are to live up to, to fulfil, to make it come true and sparkle up that magical reality called Life

So while you go on and get inspired to catch up some more dreams and then actually work with the strength of the entire universe to get those dreams converted to reality, I'd love to send out a silent wish to bless that dream of yours.

And even when time seems to be at a standstill, and things do not seem to be working in your way - remember, there is someone out there who wishes the very best for you and hopes that all the goodness in the world may come your way... 

Smile....  Yes, this absolutely lovely smile of yours! :) Smile, have faith, be strong and hold on.... Your dream is going to become a reality and all the battles will be won!!! 

:) :) :) :)

Here's wishing your dreams come true my dear friend..... Let's dream a little more and Live it up a lot more @ Life 720! ;)

Change! The only thing constant...

Well, life doesn't necessarily have to be all structured.... So, here's breaking the monotony of the A-Z series and simply pondering over small things that come across in life.
For instance, this very thought that events in life do not necessarily all happen in a sequence... starting A, then B, and then C and so on... Sometimes, the letters, or rather the events get a bit jumbled up and all for good! :)
So sequencing is not necessarily a norm that we need to follow... Sometimes, it feels weird to know that most of the people in reality 'do' follow a specified sequence in their life activities. Well, up till the time our actions are more or less dominated by our parents, like school time and all, I understand. But what about when we're adults? I mean, why does it necessarily have to be college after school and then immediately a job after college, and then as soon as you think you're on the brink of settling then marriage, and getting married is like the key to open the door to parenthood - just like that! Instantaneously! 
Why doesn't any one take out time to relax a little in all this running, while time with all its life is quietly passing away... Why not just stop and stare at what we've done till now... Why not add a little spark and fun at each stage, rather than just running through all the phases like a marathon.. Only this race ends at the death bed for many! 
After all, life is so short and there's so much new to do each day - the usual, the sequential is being done by everyone all the time around the globe. But when I sleep at night, I wish I have something new to dream of doing the next day and when I wake up, I pray I have the strength to pursue it and divine grace to make my dreams come true. That's the kind of constant that really brings about a change....!:)

So my dear friend, what new have you done recently! If you have to think really hard to answer that question, guess it's time to set fire to the calcium in those bones and add some spark in life!
After all, life is everything and more, so lets Live it up more @ Life720..... ;)

Taking a peep down memory lane, it is impossible to imagine a childhood minus the fun of sitting in front of the television set and watching our favourite show... Without doubt, C has to be for...

"They dance and sing and laugh and cry
they jump and fall and fly and run,
Friends of childhood, heroes of youth
imaginary characters that are  enjoyable fun"

'C' represents our all-time quintessential Cartoons! :D

Whether we talk about the easy going fun that we enjoyed through the antics of Tom and Jerry, or whether we talk about the super hero that awakens in us when Spider Man saves the day, cartoons are intricately weaved into almost every individual's life. While watching cartoons is truly an indispensible activity that takes up quite a lot of our time when we are kids, there are so many of these characters that we love to watch even when we've grown up into so-called adults. No matter what be the age, there's something to learn from each cartoon character that we enjoy!

Here's listing down 10 things that I learned over the years from the wide variety of cartoons that I had and some that I still continue to spend time with -

Learning #1 - Friends are greater than foes
All time eager to knock the other off, Tom and Jerry represent the penultimate bond of duality. While they scrabble across the house, bringing most of it down, bring upon one threat to either and the other ALWAYS risks it's life in saving the threatened partner - foes they may be, but in the end they're always the best of friends for each other. 

Learning #2 - Love is all that matters
While lady luck is something, that Archie Andrews has perennially struggled with, his message stands clear - Love makes the whole world go round! Literally!! Tonnes of girls the young freckled man has been after, though lady lack not really been on his side but Archie knows it for sure - Love is all that you need to live for, so worth the efforts! 

Learning #3 - The big oak was once a nut
Whether it is Mickey's all so humane fun antics, or the real life story of a mouse becoming a super cartoon - inspiration galore! The tiny mouse has been a huge source of fun and laughter and pure simple family entertainment with his bunch of goofy characters - lots to remind one that to become big you need to actually start off as very small - pun intended! 

Learning #4 - Family is always family
Friends we choose, family we are born into - no choices offered! But no matter how weird the members of a family may seem, they are loved from the core of the heart and no matter what horrific stunts they might end up doing aka the Addam's Family - family will always be family!

Learning #5 - With great power comes great responsibility
Spider Man learnt it the hard way, but without doubt all the super macho heroes would agree with it - great power works only if you understand its accompanying responsibility. And the avengers walk the talk quite well - fighting the evils, while flaunting their powers with all those killer looks is totally super hero stuff, dude!

Learning #6 - No one is perfect
Being neurotic might not seem a very good personality trait, but Charlie Brown knows how to live up to it with style! With his unusual looks and even more unusual fears, Charlie is the perfect example of a person being afraid of being himself. But that is exactly what Charlie wishes the world to understand - Being me is the best thing to be!

Learning #7 - Keeping it simple
Down to Earth, kind, honest, generous, amicable, sweet as honey and oozing with love - that's Winnie for you! The Pooh knows life is lived only once and is deeply poignant on philosophical matters, but his wise thoughts is understood well truly have the potential to save the world.

Learning #8 - Life is an adventure
This little fish in deep waters lives it up like no one does! Brimming with enthusiasm, endless energy, vivid dreams, and the grit to do it all - Nemo shows the path to living each day to its fullest! Life is short, let's not make it small - Live it Big! Swim across the waves! Enjoy it all!!! 

Learning #9 - Nothing is Impossible
If the dream is what keeps you alive, then the dream is what you'll become - Po has umpteen reasons to not becoming who he idolizes but no reason is bigger than his huge belly - ooopps! - his huge dream I mean! And not to forget Master Oogway's deep philosophy that guides through several doubts in life - 'There are no accidents'

Learning #10 - Great things come in small packages
Kevin, Bob, Stuart and the whole big yellow gang of blue jumpsuits and quirky glasses - the Minions are the trademark of utter fun, frolick, prance and caper! Totally a source of unique amusement, the little darlings are adept in doing it all, more like comedian robots whom most of would love to be despicable for! ;)

And while these are just a few, there are just so many things that cartoons can help us learn - if we really want to. The impregnated memories of Cartoon Network still bring to life simply amazing series like Flintstones, Jetsons, Dexter's Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls, Captain Planet and Scooby Dooby Dooooo!!
So while we simply while away time sitting in front of the cartoon show, why not just pick up a few things to take away from those fun filled moments spent in amusement! As CN puts it all clear and loud - CARTOON! CARTOON!
