Robin uses this to breakdown on how you can live a joyfully filled life
 
J ust ask yourself, could you use More Joy in your life
O pen up to what's possible, have fun and dream big
Y es you deserve joy, it can be just for you and you don’t have to feel guilty about it
F ind the time, you are available to everyone, it's also your job to make time for you
U ncover the area in your life that needs joy
L ove living in action mode, keep moving forward because progress feels good
L earn to overcome preventable obstacles
Y our joy will be contagious, more to share with everyone
 
She also explains the difference between happiness vs. Joy. Happiness can be fleeting, and after that moment is gone it can be hard to obtain that same feeling. Ex: eating cake. Joy is always there, something that continues to bring you joy whether the person's place or thing is present or not. Ex: family, friends, volunteering.
 
Living joyfully is about turning unexpected delays or inconveniences into positives. She told a story about having to wait at the doctor's office for over an hour. She was able to turn the miserable hour into a time to catch up on a book she was reading. What was an inconvenience at first and stopping her from continuing on with her turned into an hour of free time that she could read her book that she recently couldn’t find extra time to enjoy. This can be easily applied to other things like traffic jams, oil changes, and anything that seems to stop you from accomplishing something. Find a positive way to accomplish something else even if its small.
