Wow everyone, I can't believe it's coming to an end. This has been quite a ride, and I can't thank you enough for continuing to purchase Naturally Thin, keeping it on the New York Times bestseller list for seven weeks now. Without you, this would never be possible.
Finding the right partner has been a journey. I spent my late 20s being engaged to a series of fabulous men who wanted to take care of me forever. I was looking for the father I never had, and ultimately couldn't follow through because I needed to take care of myself. Now, I feel that I'm on a good road of independence and I can choose a partner who complements me. It has been a challenge because a public life brings up a whole new host of challenges in finding a mate. I need humor and intelligence and love and someone who is very confident and can take this journey with me. I need a very secure person. I'm dating someone who seems like he may be that guy if I can work through some of my stuff.
I think communication and honesty are great parenting tools. You have to accept your children for who they are-not who you want them to be. We are the product of our parents' unresolved issues. Keep your issues to yourself and let your kids find their way. The fact that I didn't really have parents is probably why I'm so independent, free-spirited and driven.
