The Most Important Things In Life Are….

Do you ever just sit back and consider all the great things in your life? Even when you don’t have that much?

ikon-republik-1-10Maybe your life wasn’t so great and maybe you struggle. Maybe you were a victim and it hurt. Maybe you don’t know what will happen tomorrow and that bothers you.

I wasn’t going to write a post today but then I just spent an hour and a half talking to a friend. Do you ever just spend an hour and a half talking to someone who you know you will be friends with till you die?

It’s a great feeling to talk to someone. It’s even a better feeling to know that friendship is where it’s at.

For a long time I felt like a fake. Not because I was one but because I had this thought that maybe I was doing things for the wrong reasons.

Then I spent time learning about myself. I spent time with myself and what I found out is that I do care. I care deeply about the people close to me. The way I care about them is by taking care of me and letting them take care of themselves but being there for support and understanding.

And I wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for my friends and the way they lift me up.

So this is a shout out for them.

I love these people. They are not here for selfish reasons. They are not here to control or manipulate. They are just here.

My Children. LJ. RJ Salt-lake-city-photography-school-2 9and JJ who I would die for.

My brother Aaron. I am so excited and happy that you are my brother.

My mother and father who show me so much care and the rest of my brothers and my sister and for their examples.

Meagan for the wonderful talks we have. Friends for life!

There a more.. Lang. Ryan. Vee. Heather, Phirun, Danny, Josh,  Holly, Garrison, Dion…and I could go on and on and on.

One of the greatest gifts in life is true friendship.



Ikon Republik- I live and travel in a frickin van and I love my life! I founded a magazine, VEGA Magazine.   My magazine is full of beautiful nude women and its based around the idea of respect and soon it will include amazing articles on how to improve your life!  Out of the last 8 months, I have spent 4 of them living in the desert, under the stars and cooking over a campfire that was made with two sticks and a bow. I believe in self sufficiency and integrity. Now you know a little about who I am. I’d love to know more about you! My plan to tour the USA and teaching a workshop in every state is almost finished and I’m excited to start this big adventure! It’s almost done!
