My Life Path Number is 22 and I’m Basically Luke Skywalker

Sometimes you just feel like slipping into obscurity and doing nothing.


So, sometimes when I’m stressed out about life and making enough money, I do things like Google manatees or figure out my life path number and now I feel like Luke Skywalker or a college recruiter or something.

For some reason I can’t get the code for the quiz to work but my life path number is the lovely 22.

And it says (all direct quotes are in bold):

Your purpose in life is to use your power for good. 

Just like Luke!

Of all the life paths, yours has the most innate power. 

Just like Luke!

Your power lies in your vision, and you must recruit others to help you in this vision. 

Uh-oh. What does this mean? I’m a writer. Oh! I know it means that my stuff totally sucks without the help of an agent or an editor to hone my vision. Hhmm.. Wait, that’s depressing. But no. Luke had Yoda. It’s okay to have a team.

I need a team. A Scooby squad. A pacifist army of do-gooders.

You are able to be a great idealist, but you still have the practicality to get things done. 

One of my editors says I’m really goal oriented.

In love, you tend to be a big romantic –  but you also tend to keep your distance. 

Like Han Solo maybe? Or is Luke like this? I can’t remember anything about his love life except his creepy crush on his sister.

Spoiler: I’ve never had a creepy crush on my sister.

You have a lot of potential, and it’s sometimes hard to live up to.
Sometimes you just feel like slipping into obscurity and doing nothing. 

Um. Already there, Life Number People.

You tend to be prone to dramatic emotions, until you step back and look at things honestly. 

You aren’t supposed to tell people this! Hold on while I feel big dramatic emotions about you sharing this secret.

So how about you? What’s your life path number? Do you want to be in my Scooby gang? We could all do good things and not go bankrupt together!

We have a podcast, LOVING THE STRANGE, which we stream biweekly live on Carrie’s Facebook and Twitter and YouTube on Fridays. Her Facebook and Twitter handles are all carriejonesbooks or carriejonesbook. But she also has extra cool content focused on writing tips here.

Carrie is reading one of her raw poems every once in awhile on CARRIE DOES POEMS. And there you go! Whew! That’s a lot!
