Inspiration is a “magic” ingredient when you need to get something done or to lead a successful project. It is very difficult to know what will inspire someone at any given time but one thing I do know is you will have to figure out a way to tap into the emotional and empathetic nature to inspire someone to take action for the sake of others. Avery Lynn’s life was short but her bucket list touched hearts around the world and inspired many people to donate money and volunteer hours and other services.

Inspiration is Like a Magic Ingredient
The 6-month-old girl whose parents created a “bucket list” blog for their daughter after doctors said she would not live past age 2 died Monday, her father said.
Avery Lynn Canahuati, who was born in November with spinal muscular atrophy type 1, died of pulmonary complications related to the genetic disorder, Mike Canahuati said on the blog Tuesday.
“In short, one of her lungs collapsed and she went into cardiac arrest,” said Canahuati, 31, of Bellaire, Texas. “I immediately performed CPR on her and was able to bring her back to life, but only for a brief period of time before she passed away shortly after arriving at the hospital.
Writing in the first person as if his daughter were the author, Canahuati created new bucket list entries during the week on the family’s averycan.blogspot.com website or their “Avery’s Bucket List” Facebook page. They included:
1. Wake up smiling.
2. Have a bad hair day.
3. Ride in an ambulance.
4. Get picked up by a fireman.
5. Meet a fan.
6. Talk to mommy & daddy.
7. Eat a cupcake & a Blow Pop.
8. Play with Play-Dough.
9. Play a practical joke on someone.
If you don’t have one, start a bucket list today. A bucket list prompts the mind to consider “what if” and inspires true exploration and discovery and that is always a good thing. Make sure inspiration is a magic ingredient in your life and in the lives of those around you.
