Send in the Clowns

Lately, i have been feeling melancholic. I have been contemplating on the things that happened to me and the things that i have done whether good or bad. While doing so, i am listening to the song 'Send in The Clowns' sung by Barbra Streisand. It's a sad song. But i love it so much. The words in the lyrics are so deep such as the following, "Just when I'd stopped opening doors, finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours, making my entrance again with my usual flair, sure of my lines, no one is there."

When i listen to this kind of music (piano instrumental), i can contemplate better, can think better and can decide better. And as i continue listening to the song, i somehow feel better. Although the clowns were not around. As the last 4 stanzas of the song says, "Isn't it rich, isn't it queer, losing my timing this late in my career, and where are the clowns, Quick send in the clowns, Don't bother, they're here."

After the contemplation period, another loyal companion of mine is my book. I get inspired by the writings of Dr Harold Sala in his Today Counts, 365 guidelines to a meanignful life. It should be read in a daily basis but sometimes i go over the next day. Admittedly, i cannot sometimes read it in a daily basis but i see to it i did not miss to read each guidelines.
So, with the music and the book i am already fine. And the feeling of being melancholic, although i cannot ignore it, but i can somehow live with it in a positive way. No matter what level is my being melancholic, i see to it i am always on top.
