Your Life Path Number is 11





Your purpose in life is to inspire others


Your amazing energy draws people to you, and you give them great insight in return.

You hold a great amount of power over others, without even trying.

You have the makings of an inventor, artist, religious leader, or prophet.


In love, you are sensitive and passionate. You connect with your partner on a very deep level.


You have great abilities, but you are often way too critical of yourself.

You don't fit in - and instead of celebrating your differences, you dwell on them.

You have high expectations of yourself. But sometimes you set them too high and don't achieve anything.

Day 8 - What's In Your Handbag

Not much!

I am not a handbag person as such, and have an everyday one, a Sunday one and a work one.

My everyday one has my purse (a union flag one!), inhaler, comb, lip balm, mp3, tissues, and a fold-away shopping bag.

My work one (here on it's seat in the kitchen) has a book, bodyspray, comb, spare pen, biscuits, small tub of coffee & a mug, and then in go the sandwiches, crisps, fruit, and water bottle ... and while at work, the sweatshirt (or coat) I wore to get there.
