Howdy Hi, it’s Feel Good Fri! It is also the last week of Breast Cancer Awareness Month which is proudly dedicated to the real men out there. Those real men who stand proud in pink. Because…
REAL MEN WEAR PINK.
Trust me when I say that a man sporting a hint of pink is dashing, daring and distinguished. Guys, I implore you to welcome pink into your wardrobes. Those salmon pink shirts are lipstick-watering. That candy cane pink tie is marvellous magnetic. Dare to be different. Not convinced? Let these men do the talking…
You’re not at school anymore. Real men wear pink. No one is going to call you names. Unless you’d rather we didn’t mention how utterly delicious you look. Really. Truly. Honestly. Probably best not to go overboard though. Get your pink on. It’s for a good cause. Real men wear pink and real men get what they deserve… A bit more pink! See below for details and wear pink and your own peril!
AY, CARAMBA! Friday has arrived once again on butterfly wings and sunshine smiles. The air has developed a chilly edge and has had us digging into the depths of our wardrobes for those Narnia shielding coats. But while the temperature drops outside, it’s time to turn the heating on and spice things up. Not sure what I’m getting at? Here’s a clue…
Got it yet? No? Final clue…
Yes. That’s right, we’re talking breasts. Whatever you want to call them though, make sure you squeeeeeze them. Breast obsessed men should be applauded the world over. If only women spent as much time feeling, pondering, squeezing, adoring their chests as much as the male species. Guys, we bow to your wisdom and promise to follow your example on this one. So what are you waiting for…?
Guys. Girls. It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Friday. Get squeezing.
The weekend is over. A new week has begun. But instead of falling into the Monday morning mope, let’s fall down the rabbit hole instead and have some fun. I’ve been pondering Wonderland through Alice eyes. What does it all mean? Can we learn anything from it? So, I’ve gathered together the best quotes and images to be found and attempted to tie them together with some non and some sense. To quote the Duchess:
“Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.”
THE WHITE RABBIT
The White Rabbit. That waistcoat wearing, clock bearing, hop hop hopping curiosity that may have killed the cat. Or Alice for that matter. Be curious. Follow that rabbit. You never know where it might lead you.
FALLING DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE
Yes, it might lead you to some incomprehensible places for reasons as yet unknown. Places that are dark and fuzzy, surreal and strange. Places that scare you and dare you to explore. Feel the fear. Step out of your comfort zone. Take a chance and do something different. Surprise yourself. You never know what’s round the corner so instead of waiting, hop skip and jump right in.
Drink me. Eat me. Challenge me. Dare me. Do something spontaneous. Take a risk. It may unlock doors that once seemed impassible. No, I don’t mean impossible. As Door so rightly stated:
“Nothing is impossible!”
BIG AND LITTLE
Sometimes you’re ten feet tall, know it all, having a ball. Next, you take a curve ball, have a great fall, feel teeny tiny small. We change. We grow. We go one way. We stop. We change direction. We take a couple of steps back then a few forward. Like a dance. Most importantly, we just keep going.
Tick tock. Tick tock. The ticking clock will never stop. Time is elusive. Time won’t wait. Time is all we have. Time is now. Now is for ever. Live for now. This moment. Right here. And the next. And the next.
PACK OF CARDS
Life is like a game of cards. People are dealt different hands. Some keep their cards close to their chest. Some play by the rules. Some cheat. Sometimes, you just need a bit of luck. Sometimes, following the rules is futile. Sometimes, you just have to go with it. Pick a card, any card and make it work.
MAD HATTER’S TEA PARTY
“Curiouser and Curiouser”
Alice, we know exactly how you feel about life not making sense. But sense is for tasting. For seeing. For hearing, feeling, smelling. There is no sense in trying to make sense of something that has no sense at all. Life is nonsensical. The wise sense that life is for living, for sensing, for nonsensing. Life is not for trying to make sense. If that sounds like nonsense then it most probably makes sense.
Take a leaf out of the Hatter’s tea cup. Embrace the nonsense. Oh, and drink tea.
“We’re all mad here”
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
Looking at your reflection in the mirror is all well and good. If you like what you see, of course. But, as much as we’re convinced to believe otherwise, surface is superficial. Sometimes you have to go deeper. We’re not our own reflections. We’re human. We have multiple dimensions. We have layers. We have depth. Most of all, we have imperfections. That’s what makes us all so darn perfect! Give up standing on the outside, appraising exteriors. Step into that looking glass and explore a plethora of individual, nonsensical and utterly fabulous wonderlands.
We are all Alice. We are all exploring. Wonderland is exhausting. But help is at hand. Read. Use your imagination. Play. Be spontaneous. Live young. Stand tall. Most importantly… BE. LIVE. BELIEVE.
Finally, that age-old question that’s had us scratching our chins for decades…
“Why is a raven like a writing desk?”
Lewis Carroll had this to say:
The End. Or should I say, THE BEGINNING. Write your own Wonderland.

It’s Friday again. Yippee! There’s no bubble quite like it. You peel yourself out of bed in the morning with a little bit more ease. You radiate a slight smugness that is reciprocated by everyone around you. Commuters skip to the crowded train they normally sprint to, exchanging awkward smiles instead of barging the world […]
