Subject: RE: Relearning instruments after a stroke
Just remember that while you are trying to do it (practicing), it may feel impossible and not go very well, but when you NEXT try you may find your brain has woven amazing progress, in between the attempts.

Be willing to feel stupid, or clumsy, or helpless in the short term-- trust your brain to make itsef smarter, more graceful, and more empowered over time.

Work WITH the frustration, welcoming it as a sign of progress.

Laugh about it as much as possible to counter the fear or built-up tiredness of it all, and it will go faster, too.
