Behind the Breakthroughs

Jan 2, 2019

Welcome 2019! With a new year comes a fresh start and setting new goals. However, goal setting can often have an opposite effect when you don't reach your goals leaving you to feel guilty and discouraged. Sound familiar? In this Episode Dr. Nunez and Maylene share their thoughts on New Year's Resolutions and how to make them positive and inspiring by doing small things daily, weekly, or even monthly. A resolution can be as simple as reminding yourself daily to take care of YOU! 

For many women, especially mothers who have children on the autism spectrum, life can detour you from your New Year's Resolutions. Remember that a child's growth isn't linear and it is constantly shifting and changing, and so will your resolutions. We often focus on the goal rather than our accomplishments. So keep in mind that you are not failing when you set new resolutions because it is a way of moving forward in the same direction that your life course has shifted to. Learn to adjust, reassess, and make resolutions a lifestyle. This is called growth...  


  1. Resolutions don’t just happen at the beginning of the year. Mindshift and change the way you think about Resolutions. They just don't happen at the its not final, go with the flow of life and make reassessing a lifestyle.
  2. Resolutions are meant to be positive. Do not get discouraged when you fulfill your resolution or don’t get overwhelmed by making too many resolutions.
  3. ALWAYS be grateful for where you are and what you have in life.
  4. Make a vision board with all the things you would like to accomplish in 2019. Vision boards are powerful because what you see goes into your unconscious.
