Not sure if this is within bounds of your question, but, for me there is only today, everpresent moment, not looking forward to tomorrow, nor dwelling upon the past. Now exists, it exists always in the now - there is no longer some sense of "what can I offer myself (in terms of encouragement) now to live into the Now 5 seconds from now, 5 days from now, The Now 5 years from now....". Now exists, now I deal with, what makes it worth dealing with is it being part of my authentic journey where I never take the 54th step ahead, or retake the disastrous 39th step behind, instead, I always take only this one step, now. As such, I do not remind myself "I have beauty (or whatever) to look forward to", I merely realize "some people walk the paved road of life, some take the path less traveled, and some like me beat a path through a forbidding thick jungle filled with terrifying pitfalls and even more fantastic lost cities of gold" - I don't know if the Now 5 minutes from now will be a pitfall, or if the Now 5 decades from now be another fantastic lost city of gold, none of that matters, because only one step is always now before me. I suppose, perhaps, it is a sense of general adventure, as opposed to a specific hope, which is my "reminder". Also note, however, this is part of my path, others do indeed need other things/reminders to keep them going to the next day, there is no wrong answer here if it serves the purpose of moving forward towards higher ideals the next day will permit.
Hopefully I made sense in this mangled heap of metaphors and marginal philosophy many in our crazed culture don't subscribe to. -Pat
