When you have worked in the non-profit world for some time, like life in general you are faced with ups and downs. It's during the down times you need inspiration to press on. Such as these thoughts from George Bernard Shaw:
"I am a dreamer. Some men see things as they are, and ask why; I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
“Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch, which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”
