In this episode, I share the screen with Christine Pittman, the founder of COOKTheSTORY, whose passion is to create recipes that take less time in the kitchen and help women get more time at the table. As a busy single mom of two, Christine totally gets how tough it can be. She shares the wisdom after figuring things out for her own family and the transformative journey of life after Divorce.
Key Points in this Episode:
✔️ Overcoming mom guilt and maximizing “me time”. Christine shares her initial feelings of sharing custody of the children. “When you’re a parent, your kids consume all of your time. Suddenly, I had moments to rediscover myself and figure out what I wanted to do with that time. And that has been the most energizing and centering thing for me.”
✔️ Divorce will teach you to focus on the things you have control over. “Convenience and enough food is the priority at their dad’s. For me, it’s making sure to have a variety of vegetables and fruits. When I used to be so fussing about that, I think it’s good for the kids to see different adults having different priorities feeding themselves.”
✔️ Compromise doesn’t mean caving in or giving up what’s important to you. This is one of the biggest lessons you learn when dealing with your former spouse, kids, parents, and friends. You can compromise but still honour your identity, likes and dislikes, and understand how to navigate and voice what feels right to you and engage in dialogue around what will work for everybody.
