570 of anything, whether it’s books, bikes or blog posts, means you can’t find what you want without help. Since Diamond-Cut Life has posted more than 570 pieces since it started in late 2007, I’m presenting today a new page: a friendly tour of the 57 best/most popular posts on how to be rich in what matters, arranged by topic (relationships, financial health, climate literacy, treading lightly, spirituality, etc.)  Namaste!

    This is great, all the posts grouped by topic. Thanks!

      Glad it works for you, Green Power Guy. I felt like a curator as I put this post together. . . . having 570-plus articles to sort through and collect the links of is one of those good problems for a writer to have.

    How fun in giving the reader options as to search by category, Alison! I remember I first found you via a post about your hiking on a mountain. I’ve heard about the atrocious weather in Portland and it looks like it will warm a bit but with more rain for you. All of our best :)

    What a great Idea, Alison.

    This must have taken you LOTS of time.

    WOW.

      Kim, it would take another dedicated blogger (like you) to make that observation.
      Yes, it took about 6-8 hours. I felt like a curator as I moved around, picking out what to
      present, and what to leave out. Just went over to your place and left a comment.
      Wonderful, heartful post, as always.
      Hope your book is coming along well . . . . books are much harder than writing posts, in my experience.
      Eager to read when it’s finished.

    As the type of reader that gets easily bored of blogs that fall into the trap of saying the same thing over and over, I’d like to say *bravo!* on writing so many unique posts! I must say my favorite is the climbing-a-mountain post, where you relate it to tackling any hard thing. You might think it’s my favorite because I’m in it, but that isn’t the reason. For me, it’s the enduring message that it’s important to remind oneself that hard challenges are truly dynamic forces. Success is closely tied to one’s ability to find the appropriate pace; give (and take) support and encouragement; and know that ‘the summit’ is just one piece of the greater whole.

      Colleen, I have to say that your comment gives me the warmest feeling of all the 1,200-plus comments I’ve received on DCL over the years. When you say ‘bravo’ on writing so many unique posts that are not just saying the same thing over and over again, I feel seen for what I am: an essay-writer who is a generalist, not a specialist. My definition of a generalist is: one who writes about a great many things, with an eye to the wholeness of them, focusing overall on that which unites all of life. — That’s in sharp contrast to the modern model of specializing (a big topic for another day :)).

      I also love what you wrote: “the enduring message that . . . hard challenges are truly dynamic forces. Success is closely tied to one’s ability to find the appropriate pace; give (and take) support and encouragement; and know that ‘the summit’ is just one piece of the greater whole.”

      Beautifully said. You truly live those principles out in your life. I love you, dear friend.
