Do you find that as the end of the year gets closer, inexorably pulling us towards it, bringing the looming spectre of 2018 into view, that you look back and take stock? Perhaps you reflect on the preceding twelve months, assessing the highs, the lows and the in-betweens. Nothing stays the same and our lives are in a constant state of flux. Good phases blur into more challenging ones and we’re never permanently on easy street. By the same token, sometimes, just as we think we can’t tolerate any more bad fortune, a break appears in the clouds and we’re back into happy times. Of course, there are some things which help to anchor us, things which can be relied on to stay the same. Male massage London falls into that category. The only way in which it changes is that it gets better and better as time goes by. That’s why it’s recommended to enjoy this deluxe therapy at least once a month (preferably once a week).
Whatever one’s personal circumstances, 2017’s been strange. The political landscape is every bit as shaken as it was in 2016, with American politics descending into a strange parody of showbiz and our own lives ruptured by the lumbering and chaotic Brexit negotiations. With any luck, matters in our private lives have been more stable, but – of course – that’s not necessarily the case. As adults, we often have to contend with matters like bereavement, divorce, illness and financial worries. But all those things have their opposites – the arrival of new life, marriage, good health and plenty of income.
And what are we to make of the way that identity politics has completely altered the complexion of the original LGBT model? For many, this represents progressiveness, our minds and spirits expanding to encompass and understand more and more ways of living and loving. For others, however, it’s regressive with some forms of feminism experiencing a pushback from men’s rights activists. Different factions seem to be at war with one another. Mercifully, since the season of good will and the ringing in of a new year are on the horizon, we can temporarily down tools and embrace one another, casting aside our superficial differences and focussing instead on that which we have in common. Male massage London can assist us in relaxing during the seasonal holidays, especially if the prospect of getting together with family for a number of days is filling us with stress and negative anticipation. After all, as the modern-day aphorism goes, no one presses our buttons quite like family members.
Perhaps the most important thing to reflect on when we look at the year almost gone is that we’re still here, the inner spark undimmed by whatever misfortunes or trials or ordeals the year may have put in our paths.
