Hope And Presence?

Hi coaches. I have a hard time reconciling two concepts / thoughts in my head. I’ve always been a relatively positive person, meaning I always believed things will get better, there’s a brighter future waiting for me which I’m super looking forward to and excited about (I have this thought most of the time and around most of things in life, other than specific down moments obviously). However one of the podcasts mentioned “it doesn’t get better than this” or the whole concept of being present – which I also understand and thrive to live in presence. I know there shouldn’t be a clash between these two concepts, however I caught myself self talking “it doesn’t get better than this”, which makes me feeling stuck, and I do no actions. Please help!
