Default Peaks and valleys of the learning process

I donít know if this is something that is unique to adult learners, or if those who start when they are younger experience it as well, but sometimes I swear I take so many steps back in my learning process that itís hard to remember where Iíve gotten to. I mean, recording my playing (as painful as that is sometimes) helps to provide a gauge, but the unpredictability of the peaks and valleys can be overwhelming.

Iím not the type to get so discouraged as to want to not play any more. I mean really, how effing cool is it that we get to play such a powerful and beautiful instrument? But doing a little toddler dance of frustration on occasion is also part of the process for me 🤣🤣.

Anyone else have the occasional (private) temper tantrum?
