theamerican Being a dad is a dream come true for me. I love my little man more than I could've imagined. Life is better than I could ever imagine, I have more purpose to my life than ever before. I also feel more pain and understanding today for my sweet sister and brother who lost their first born son 4 years ago today. It makes me sick to think of losing my little legend. He is my life and I want my sister and bro to know that I cannot imagine the pain they have gone thru but they are doing a great job at surviving this life and continuing to push forward and find the small joys in life. No one should have to do that and I admire both of you. Everyone can always be grateful and I am grateful today for my little teddy bear. 2mon

theamerican This work has changed my life! Since 2010 I've been helping people get clean water. I've been around the world multiple times and seen lives transformed. I've witnessed things most people will never see and done things most will never do. All my blessings and experiences are by products of this work, it's not about me it's about them. Life is short and it will only get shorter and less enjoyable as you think about yourself. Help those around you, there is always someone who needs help. Yesterday I spoke to a drug rehab about @12stepgiving and the importance of clean water in our lives. I don't usually get teary eyed but this time I did. We are all capable of doing so much and we are all powerful beyond our earthly vision. We can do great things, I always knew I would do something great and I think this is something great. The experiences over the last 6 years have changed my life and set me on an never ending path, I'll never stop. #waterisLIF 2mon

theamerican Legend you are the best thing that's ever happened to me. You get cuter everyday. Too bad I'm sick with the flu and haven't held you for 2 days. I'm quarantined to the back room so @jkcarlson has to send me pictures and videos. 3mon

theamerican Ever since I dropped out of school in 9th grade this has been my favorite quote. It's from my favorite movie Braveheart. I've always lived a life that was different than everyone else, I still do. The date on this was at a time when I was being forced into being something I'm not and everyone was harassing me about not going to college, I even had girls that wouldn't date me because I wasn't in school. All of us will die one day and come face to face with ourselves and the decisions we made in this life. All of us will be on our death bed one day thinking... Damn I wish I would've done this or done that or been here or been there. Living a life without regret I would say is nearly impossible, there will always be a better choice to be made and a alternate route to be taken but the goal in my life is to really live. Enjoy the good and bad, find comfort in silence, treat everyone like your best friend, do what you want, help those around you, be a blessing to others, break the mold, chill waaaaaay hard, work less the list is infinite. I'm excited to be a dad in the coming weeks and enter into this new life with my son and beautiful wife Jessie. I've had some sleepless nights the last bit and have really found myself and have cried tears of joy about my son. I'm ready for this chapter to be written and fear nothing. "If you fear you will fall". Fear nothing! 4mon

theamerican One of the best days of my life. Sensory overload with feelings of love, stokeness, gratitude, and wanting to never stop helping people. The experiences of the past 10 days will never leave me, I wish everyone could experience the things I have. It's seriously insane. Travel for others and then yourself. Only pictures I'm in are selfies with my GoPro haha. #waterisLIF @_let_it_flow 4mon

theamerican On our way to the next stop today after having one of the most epic days of my life. The Philippines is all-time, we had lobster, and a whole slew of other seafood delights after implementing water filters that will provide water to a minimum of 500+ people. Life changing for sure and I continue to be humbled, we have all we need in this life, family and friends. Thankyou @_let_it_flow #waterisLIF 4mon

theamerican 2 years ago almost to the day I got fired from people water, a company that I was a founder of and a company I loved. Never in my life had I felt something so savage, it almost ruined me. I'm on such a huge high right now that I won't come down and throw people water or anyone under the bus, even though for 2 years I've been planning what I would do or say once my non disparage agreements where up. I was fired over a campaign for the Philippines and I never thought I would make it here. Well look who made it, I'm here doing some serious positive damage in the lives of others with my bro @soberjedi who also has lost much but who has conquered negativity. Stoked to be here with you. I'm poor as shit right now and don't have much to look forward to in terms of money or success at this point but I don't really care. I don't have to be the best or come in first place. I don't give 2 shits what I look like or what I wear, it's all a joke and the world is so damn fake and way too big to care. Most the world lives like shit and I witnessed that heaviness today. I witnessed people who are gnarly, they have nothing nothing nothing they are drinking straight from a nasty ass river and seem to have no food but would give you everything, food, love, shelter, clothing it's always eye opening to me. We have our lives twisted up and everything is backwards, complete smoke and mirrors. Don't let yourself be ruined. Be cautious of who you're becoming and what your priorities are. Money is numbers and numbers never end. Hold tight to love/real. 4mon
