This week, I escaped from the ordinary and hopped on the Metro North train from New Haven into Grand Central in Manhattan.

My objective was to attend a taping of the new Lifestyle TV Show – The Revolution and have some fun and catchup with a dear friend. We had a blast at the show and enjoyed the energy of the guests as we sat in the audience.

The surprise announcement was guest host, the beautiful and talented Toni Braxton. Toni looks absolutely gorgeous in real life.

Plus, I was able to shoot this photo as we were leaving the set. It’s always good to have your camera for an unplanned Kodak moment.

This little expediting provided me with an opportunity to add newness into my daily routine. We sometimes complain how predictable life can become, but, it’s entirely up to you and no one else to add novelty and excitement into your life.

I want to encourage you to start thinking of activities you can participate in or events you can attend. Perhaps it may require travel, one of my favorite activities. Consider it time to create your own revolution, because as the tag line on the screen says, it’s all about you.
