Although I am an Alpha female and future superstar on the rise, that doesn’t mean that I don’t experience many lonesome nights.
Because I’m often the leader of the pack and very much focused on my goals and dreams so many people come to me for advice, encouragement and approval yet, there’s no one for me to turn to.
While my friends are preoccupied with boyfriends, jobs and finding themselves I’m usually planning my next innovative project and reaching out to other women who have accomplished the dreams that I have. It brings me extreme pleasure when I make a good connection yet, I yearn for someone to share my journey with.
I’m not just talking about having a boyfriend; there are plenty of men who can fulfill my sexual and companionship needs. What I’m looking for is someone who truly understands what it’s like to be surrounded by people who all want what you have- that brilliance, that confidence, that inner light that beckons people from near and far.
Every successful person knows that in order to be a true leader, you must first be a true servant. I spend my days and some nights counseling others, encouraging them and helping them to recognize their inner power. By the time I’m done with my daily inspirational duties, I’m exhausted and left feeling empty. No one knows this of course. Perhaps no one even cares. They come to receive direction and I give without hesitation yet I would love to see the day when I can kick back and receive the same type of inspiration and positive energy that I give.
I can’t walk away from who I am and what I give as a leader because being who I am truly brings me joy. It’s just…As I participate in the creation of other people’s prosperity while I’m on my own grind to achieve dreams that are more grandiose than average, I do wish to someday take a break and allow someone else to take the reins for a little while.
I imagine the day when I will only be Alpha when I want to be. But that day will only come when I’ve linked up with someone that I can trust to lead me where I’m already going. You know, someone who has already been there and understands the importance of allowing me the time and space to rest so that I can be refreshed and give even more.
Until then…of course I’ll help you. How may I serve you today?
