What Brings You Irrepressible Joy?


And I’m not just talking about the kind of joy that puts a smile on your face. I’m talking about the kind of joy that lights you up from the inside, that makes your heart feel light and makes your soul feel like it releases a deep breath. The kind of joy that puts a spring in your step and a light in your eyes?

I’m really just a simple girl at heart, simplest things give me irrepressible joy! 

And I’m realizing this more and more the older I get. The things that bring me deep, irrepressible joy are so ridiculous that sometimes I take them fore-granted. 

So much of what brings me this joy is related to my senses! Taste, Touch, Sound & Sight. 

The sound of rain pelting a tin roof.

The smell of rain on hot tar.

The sound & smell of coffee in a coffee machine.

The smell of puppies breath.

The scent and soft feel of freshly laundered sheets on my bed.

The sound of a books freshly cracked spine & the smell of it’s pages, with stories yet to be discovered.

The smell & sounds of a new baby.

The tingle and taste of dry champagne bubbles on my tongue.

The sound of my children’s laughter.

The feeling of calm that encompasses me when I sit down with a glass of wine & my book at night after my children have gone to bed. I call it my soul sigh.

The feel of my dog’s body pressed against my back as we snuggle in bed at night.

The taste of a chocolate melting on my tongue.

The sounds of owl hooting & night and birds tweeting in the early morning. 

The sunrise and sunset. 

These are the simplest of everyday things that bring me such great pleasure and irrepressible joy. 

I’m talking about the kind of joy the Martians experienced when they first tasted Cadbury’s Dairy Milk! 

Cadbury’s Dairy Milk has been spreading joy for years.

But now that joy has gone inter-planetary with the discovery of life on Mars and the Martians just can’t seem to get enough of our delicious Cadbury’s Dairy Milk. Watch how the chocolate gets them all dancing with irrepressible joy.  


What brings you that sense of peace and calm that comes from the simplest joy that can be felt in your soul?
