Pure Season children can be the epitomes of their Season personality. They have not yet learned to temper some of their strong characteristics. They are not diluted by the blending with another Season that makes for a thousand unpredictable mixtures. True Spring is sometimes very random, laughter that bursts out, changes in subject you can’t keep up with. Others are optimistic. They will see the bright side but can be very quiet and reserved.
The party children. Playful, silly, unpredictable. Would shoot Grandma with a water cannon and say they were only aiming for her walker. As 2 year olds, it takes a lot of extended family to keep them alive.
Favorite topic is themself, whose isn’t, but they will talk about anything. Go to the bathroom and get a drink before this child gets going because they do not turn off easily. Grownups that can talk for a long time often have a Spring+Summer mix, because Summer might start out quiet, but they have a lot they’d like to share. If the story comes out in a timeline, they have a bigger sprinkle of Summer’s fairy dust. If there are many twinkly smiles and jokes, not taking anything too seriously, and really rather be moving than talking, possibly a bigger dab of Spring.
Do not get hung up on every little emotional upheaval.
Will play any game at any time with anybody. No rules? No problem. Who needs them? Staying on task to complete a chore? Now, that may be a problem.
Will stand in a spotlight with a bucket on their head if it gets laughs. Laughs and applause is even better.
Will get caught behind the couch at Christmas eating candies with the cousins he talked into joining him. He will squeal and take off to commence the next antic, like eating his brother’s pet fish. Who can get angry with such a happy kid?
Has trouble choosing. Do not ask which of 4 kinds of juice she wants unless you plan to be there awhile or are willing to give her some of each.
Walk in a pouring rainstorm? Sure! Might meet a bear? Great!! Pirates? Better!! They will be friendly bears and pirates in this optimistic and imaginative mind.
Do not need every kid to agree. Whatever floats your boat. Would prefer not to be told what to do in return. Can dig in their heels with the best of them.
Spring finds reasons to get along. If things get tense, they’ll make a joke. Summer will soothe and facilitate. Others might put up their dukes.
If anyone will break down the Season stereotypes, it will be Spring. Her iris pattern won’t always follow the rules. Her character may be very gentle and quiet, yet still brimming delight. Her hair might be blonde but it’s usually medium brown. Eyebrows may be darker than you expect.
With optimism are bundled hope and faith. She is not a skeptic, a cynic, a pessimist, or a logician. The world would feel better to her as a simple place where faith sustains and guides, traits to honour and express openly.
She holds the most beautiful attributes of the Forrest Gump character, to me a movie that was not about handicaps of any sort. It was about never giving in to bitterness. Forrest knew in his heart that honesty, unwaivering intention, and compassion simplify life. He knew that IQ, success, and kindness are not prerequisites of one another.
Bright Spring is the Valentine’s Day box of chocolates. More glitz, bigger show, great flash, still delicious, lots of sweet centers. It crinkles and pops right back into shape. Too delicate to survive a year in storage, just won’t come out the same, very in the moment.
Smiles easily and with genuine pleasure at greeting or interacting with people, even as adults. This is a trait often seen in Spring men. You see their teeth much more often than men from other Seasons.
Everything about life is nothing short of miraculous. Perhaps most awesome is the body’s and our planet’s capacity for healing and renewal. Spring embodies this most extra-ordinary and wondrous gift.
