“Making the impossible happen for me. The way I keep myself motivated is by using what I call the "Treehouse" method. The best part of the treehouse is planning it and building it to the exact way you want it. Once it's built, it's cool and all but it won’t compare to how fun it was to build it. I either suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret and I don’t want any more regret. Keep doing the things it takes to be better because it’s a choice and you can do it.” - @fwtx.emilyrose 🌹
