theamerican Each of the kids in this picture have all passed on to the next life. Top left is my sisters boy #olliekaihebb who we all miss so much. Last year my sister held a race in his honor and now this year we will be honoring more kids who have passed away. Today is the last day to pre register so if you go to H2orun.org you can get a shirt and sign up for $20 The race will be in Utah but you can still register as a spirit runner. All the money made will go towards helping get people clean water in Ethiopia this November. So please sign up! @tiffhebb 1mon

theamerican The guy on the left is my brother over 5 years ago when he was using. The guy on the right is also my sober brother @soberjedi present day. He has come along way since then. I have been with my brother through a lot of gnarly times over the last 10 years and have seen him at his worst. I am so proud of where he is at today and me and him have some big things we will be doing over this next few years so look out. He is on his way, and is a huge inspiration to addicts already and this is just his beginning! Follow him for positivity everyday. #na #aa #sober #onedayatatime #12step #onelife 2mon

theamerican There is a battle of two wolves inside all of us. One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority, and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth. The wolf that wins? The wolf you feed. - Cherokee proverb - I have been battling with which wolf to feed. I find myself feeding the wolf that is evil and depriving the wolf that is good. The one who is joy, peace, humility, kindness. I have been reading a lot about Israel and Palestine and I am sick because of it all. This is only the beginning, I know the worst is yet to come. I pray for them! Our best defense against "The world" is to feed the good wolf. There is too much Inferiority, jealousy and ego in this world. Majority of people only care for themselves and the mass majority of people want to be rich and famous and will do whatever it takes to get there. The more I travel and the more I learn, the less I actually know and understand about this world and the people living on it. We are in trouble and are on a collision course set for destruction. We have nearly destroyed everything that is of value, family, love, honor, a mans word, dignity, chastity, self worth. Our perception of life is corrupted by media and we strive for this fictitious character that doesn't even exist. We are fuled by popularity and possessions and have a screwed up version of reality. With all that said, this is the easiest my life has ever been and I am the happiest I've ever been, I need no more than what I've got. I have let go of all the fake creations of what the world tells me my life should be and have made my own life, a life that is mine and a life that makes me and my wife happy. This Cherokee proverb is easy to digest and makes sense to me. I like things simple, I want a life that is simple. I have learned shut out the things and people that are complex and negative in my life. I will no longer feed the evil wolf from my hand and will definitely not let anyone else's hand feed it. Ps it's 1am and I can't sleep! #feedthegoodwolf 2mon
  •   sliders4 Way to go! Its easy to get caught up in the garbage the world throws at us! 2mon
  •   soberjedi Love this. All #truth. We as humans get caught up in feeding the bad wolf all the time. Maybe because he is the loudest in our lives. The bad wolf temps and harasses you while the good wolf shows us by example how to live. 2mon
  •   lauragalindo25 That's great cody!!! sometimes we just need to write it down and get it off our chests and minds and put it in perspective!!! Love it!! 2mon
  •   jndrosier Put it this way: do your best to stay away from bad influence as much as you can. That should help you feed the good wolf. 2mon
  •   renzois Yes Sensei 2mon
  •   ridenature @theamerican life is gnarly man. It's crazy how instinctively we are all pretty evil at heart. Selfishness - only thinking about ourselves from the day we're born. There has to be a deeper change of heart and a surrender to our selfish nature. Check out the film we produced last year. Talks about all of that from a Christian perspective from 33 different pro athletes. Dope film. I'm sure you'll like it. @purposefilm www.purposefilm.com. Hit me up and let me know what you think after you watch it. Hope all is good. 2mon

theamerican Everyone one of you that follow me know exactly what I do. I do water But every so often while traveling I come across a story that I know I can help with. This world revolves around money, fame, and selfishness. It also revolves around love, honesty, and kindness. I have seen mass amounts of all of them. This orphanage only needs like $3,000 bucks. To get them a new place to live before they are kicked out. I have friends who literally make that in 1 day. This is a small amount to ask all my friends and family for. It really is, if everyone of my followers gave .50 cents then we would have well over that amount. It's crazy to me that that's all it would take. These kids will have a place to live and I will make sure of that. If you wanna be part of something really cool and special then honestly just donate $5 we have already sent them $2,000. You can venmo the cash straight to me or if you feel like this is bogus then go to the link in my bio and see the whole campaign. #haiti 3mon
  •   sheri_barker I'm @theamerican s mom. I have a PayPal barkerpeople@gmail.com you can send it to me and I'll make sure it gets to the orphanage. @sharlalaw thank you so much. 3mon
  •   _mggutierrez @theamerican hi I would like to donate :) I'm online right now trying to figure out what venmo is and how it works. 3mon
  •   theamerican @sharlalaw my email for PayPal is cody@chiefwatergiver.org 3mon
  •   theamerican @mqquinones you can click the link in my bio and pay thru PayPal or straight credit card. 3mon
  •   sharlalaw @sheri_barker I just sent you the money on your paypal, it wasn't much but a little will go along way if enough people help out! Good luck raising all the money and bless you all for all you are doing for these children 3mon
  •   _mggutierrez @theamerican thanks! I was able to send through venmo! Thank you for all that you do! 3mon

theamerican This is my brother josh @soberjedi me and him are on our way back from Haiti after a long week of training him to fix wells. Stoked that I had this experience with him. It's been a life changing trip for him and I can see the positive effects it's already having on his life. His tshirt is from #NA which stands for narcotics anonymous, BST stands for Blood, Sweat, and Tears. He has come a long way and I'm proud of him. The quite of the trip was from him when he quoted yoda "fear is the path to the dark side" it's no wonder why you're name is SOBER JEDI haha now you are the #waterjedi love you bro bro. 3mon

theamerican Gets hot out here! This is how I reward myself after we fix a well. @gerbergear @_let_it_flow #hellotrouble #waterislif #chiefwatergiver #longhairdocare 3mon
  •   lexivoltz Great job! I want to encourage you to really invest in the Water User Committees in each community that you visit. Building those relationships and teaching the committee or community leader how to fix their well will help keep projects much more sustainable and self sufficient! 3mon
  •   theamerican @lexivoltz okay thanks. I do that already 3mon
  •   lexivoltz That's awesome to hear! Never quit doing what you love! So wonderful to see people all around the world working to impact communities across the globe!! 3mon
  •   jndrosier Too easy, @soberjedi 3mon
  •   soberjedi Way too easy @thehikerman He just got done with a major hike. #gohike #mightaswell Peterson. Post some pics jean 3mon
  •   kerry1234 Hay man. Love everything you do ! Just woundering. Do u ship all your tools ahead of time or like aome how get them on the plane 3mon
  •   theamerican @kerry1234 I just check them on the plane. Plus I already have a lot of tools in Haiti. 3mon

theamerican This little dude stuck with us on this beast of a well until water came out. This is the main reason why me and @soberjedi came to Haiti, clean water! 2 days ago we met a lady who runs an orphanage here in Haiti and they are being kicked out on July 5th so we took it upon us to try and help. We set up a "gofundme" account to try and get them the cash. I know everyone hears the same old story all the time but this is real shit, so is the water crisis. There are issues out here and around the world but honestly $5 will help. Do what you can, link in my bio. Or just Venmo it #waterislif #chiefwatergiver #slowyourselfdown 3mon
