Significant insignificance

Posted 2/5/2021 12:55pm by Shiloh Avery.

Small impacts begin with a seed

The other day I watched an old friend of mine defend his dissertation.  I’ve spent significant time in my life with people who turned out to do significant things.  I’m friends with people who have their own Wikipedia page!  I’ve heard friends of mine interviewed for their expertise on NPR.  I watched a friend of mine’s TED talk (not even TEDx which is significant enough!). I have many friends whose names appear with the Dr. moniker. I’ve even had a friend on Jeopardy (he won for a whole week!) Sheesh!

You might understand how this might give me a bit of a complex.  I’ve heard of the imposter complex, but this is more like a retroactive imposter complex.  Like somehow, I didn’t belong there sharing those experiences with those great people.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my job (most days) and I love the people I do my job with, and I love the people I do my job for. But sometimes when I’m watching these old friends make an impact on the larger world, I can lose track of the small impacts we make on our immediate communities nestled here in western North Carolina.  When faced with greatness, it’s easy to feel insignificant.

We're trying to impact the health of our local communities with wholesome organic veggies!  And we have opened up enrollment in our harvest share program. Some of you are already signed up, thanks!

You can sign up here: http://www.harvie.farm/signup/tumbling-shoals-farm and you can find more information here.

Here's how it works: you sign up and pay for your share now (at least in some part-no need to pay it all at once, although there are benefits to that), set your veggie preferences, and then start receiving a box of the freshest, most delicious, custom harvested and packed veggies beginning in May all the way to mid September!  Our harvest share is now fully customizable so you only get veggies you love (and you're more likely to eat them).  Going on vacation? No problem, put your share on vacation hold. Feel free to contact us with any questions!
