Listen to yourself I guess, and do things at your own pace, on your own terms, right.  Because, everyone’s going to have lots of great advice for you, but in the end, you have to live your life, you have to be comfortable with things at your own pace.  And so, kind of do things when you’re ready, and listen to your heart.  But I think patience is the other thing else I developed.  I was the most impatient person in the world, especially in this, like, era where it’s instant gratification.  You have to learn that you’re limited by a pretty clumsy body now, especially if you’re a higher- level injured person.  And I think just learning how to patiently exist inside this body takes a lot of time.
