My Funny, Chocolate Valentine

Frank Sinatra, Anita Baker, Chaka Khan, Ella Fitzgerald, Rachelle Farrell, Christina Aguilera, Kenny Rogers, Michael Bolton, Barbra Streisand, Elvis Costello, Tony Bennett, Rickie Lee Jones. These are a few of the greats who've covered the sweet classic, My Funny Valentine...

You're my valentine,
Sweet comic valentine,
You make me smile with my heart,
Your looks are laughable, un-photographable,
Yet you're my favorite work of art...

Written by Rodgers and Hart

Potent sentiments. It's about loving someone, faults and all. Have you told your loved ones lately that you love them? If not, isn't this a great day to do it?

But most of all, when next you peer into a mirror today, be sure to tell whomever stares back that you love you. Seriously: go ahead, stand in the mirror, look long and lovingly at yourself and consider how lucky you are to have You.

Once you make a love connection with the most important person in the world -- which would be You -- think of a few ways to love yourself better.

Imagine that you're the parent or guardian of the child you see in the mirror. What should you do to protect your inner child? What advice would you give a twisted kid like You?
  • Hit the gym more?

  • Get out of those toxic relationships that bring you down?

  • Go back to school?

  • Look for a better job?

  • Sacrifice to get out of debt?

  • Go ahead and propose to your special person?

  • Have a tough conversation to bring closure to an important relation?

  • Pick up the phone and call a long, lost friend with whom there's been tension?

  • Get more involved in a community improvement effort?

  • Or perhaps just say these three words -- I love you -- more than you normally do?

    To thyself be true, funny Valentine...
