"What was" is gone, "what will" be is not promised, so "what is" is all we truly have. The sad part is the present is usually the thing most people are not paying attention to. Too many of us are either stuck in the past or too focused on manipulating our future, when we really need to be "mindful of future but the focus should be on the here and now".
We all need a little motivation in our lives. I'm sure there are others who also need a cup of motivation from time to time.
