Do you have any favourite poems or quotes? This is one of my faves. . "Come to the edge" He said "We cannot" They said "We are afraid" "Come to the edge" He said They did He pushed them And they flew And in flying, they did lose their touch with the ground and all that it had to offer to them. And so it was, in time, that they learned that, at times it is right and soul inspiring to fly; and, at other times it is right and soul experiencing to walk upon the ground. Through this they did discover that which he had forgotten the essential attainment of balance.

When was the last time u dressed up, & had a crack up time? What is your alltime fave costume? Do u remember as a kid throwing on a costume then bam u were that person - batman or cowgirl or jem & the holligrams? This is my buddy @jord_abroad & I in LA... standard antics when your buddy @swpersonal has these in the costume wardrobe. When someone says - theme - we get mega excited & the creating begins. @willhall26 this vid especially for you. When It comes to costume events, dressing up we always go full noise. I am a huge fan of arts & crafts & potter away making fashion designs, wearable art costumes, captain hats & all sorts. #joholleydesigns I love finding random things laying around & going "oooohhh that could make an awesome ......." into the arts & crafts area it goes. My buddies keep saying I need to open a shop cos I have always made stuff & I love giving it to people to bless them. My fave is the captain hats for AJ, Aidan, Cat which are kiwiana with high vibrational words in the form of scrabble relating to them so everywhere they went they would shine bright, lift vibes & share Aotearoa. I love helping people feel great & dressing them up in things they never thought of. And taking them shopping aye Dunc!! You will be bargain hunting & leaving with "what is this?" Every1 will 💖 it We have create sessions where the crew dig up everyones left over crafts & we create & we are always in each others costume wardrobes. Thats the thing u do not need to buy new, see who has what, use what is already around. My 💖 4 wearable arts comes from a young age where I was right into fashion, dressing up barbies & I modelled in all the shows in Gisborne. Dressing up is so much fun. So when ur next dress up party comes up - go hard out. Fully morph into that character. Have fun with it and crack yourself up! Don't care what anyone else thinks of your costume. Jeepers 1 year we dressed my mate Evan as a teabag!! Halloween is coming so start seeing what u have laying around at home that can be transformed into something u can wear. If u need help with costumes then send me pics of what u are thinking. Happy as to help transform your look so u feel epic!

🐬WHO ELSE LOVES SCUBA DIVING? WHERE ARE SOME EPIC SPOTS AROUND THE WORLD WE SHOULD CHECK OUT? 🐠 . . I am an explorer so if Earth is 71%water best check out what is on the go under the sea. Diving is my ultimate passion. I absolutely love exploring under the sea, especially wrecks & underwater museums like this one in Cancun. Museo Subacuático de Arte where over 500 permanent life-sized sculptures made from specialised materials lay fixed to the sea bed. Aim - to promote coral life so marine life can colonize whilst increasing biomass. . . In Fiji I helped sink a wreck in the Yasawas where loads of fish now have found a home. One of my other fave dives with @clarkegayford @fishoftheday.tv was at Beqa Lagoon, no cage with the bullsharks - now that was thrilling I was def crouched down at 1 point against the reef going STREWTH they are massive & soooo close. Lucky for me Clarke was in the thick of it presenting with shark pro Mike so I figured he is lunch first 😂😂 Jokes totally safe diving. If u are all about history then Solomon Islands is the spot - u can free dive 9m and sit in the cockpit of a hellcat & massive wrecks from the wars. . . If you haven't been diving give it a go. Diving is great relaxing time away from the hustle & bustle, you encounter new species all the time, your weightless so glide through the water. It truly does open your eyes to the epic world we live in & help you appreciate our oceans more. To observe the underwater world is just a phenominal feeling. . . Do your open water course, get your first aid & always go with experienced people. Newbies just stick by your instructors they will always point out things you want to see. Get a dive watch - life changing. If you are like me & freeze make sure your wetty is right for the conditions. Check your gear!! Take your #gopro And fill in your log book. I have no idea now how many dives around the world I have done & wish I had of kept writing down spots. And take snacks for after 🤣🤣 love a good box of shapes post dive. . NEXT I WANT TO DIVE WITH THE WHALE SHARKS. SO IF YOU WANT TO ASK ME ON A DATE THIS IS THE GOODS 😂😂😂🤦🏼‍♀️🤣 . #WhosJoHolley #WheresJoHolley #BehindTheScenes

BURNINGMAN - my fave place on EARTH. R U COMING? Then know these 10 PRINCIPLES. RADICAL INCLUSION Anyone is welcome & respected. No prerequisites. GIFTING BM is devoted to acts of unconditional gift giving. Just because you gave, doesn't mean u must receive more. It's you pay it forward & someone else pays it forward to you. DECOMMODIFICATION 2 preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments - everyone helps everyone- no branding, no sponsorships RADICAL SELF RELIANCE BM encourages the individual to discover, exercise & rely on his or her inner resources. RADICAL SELF EXPRESSION Arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. COMMUNAL EFFORT Our community values creative cooperation & collaboration. We strive to produce, promote & protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, & methods of communication that support such interaction. CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants & conduct events in accordance with laws. LEAVING NO TRACE Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them. NO MOOP - MATTER OUT OF PLACE PARTICIPATION Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart. IMMEDIACY Immediate experience is the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us & a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, & contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.

I love getting red like a fire engine & working out my body. MY NON NEGOTIABLE #1 . 🏋️‍♂️What kind of training floats your boat? How often do u work out? 🏋️‍ . I am a qualified PERSONAL TRAINER, studied at AUT specialising in womens programming then became a Les Mills PT. Spent many days filling up water bottles & cleaning machines while learning all there was to learn on the LM programme. Yes, I was def a hard but fun drill sergeant - u would be going hard but cracking up at the same time & most importantly smashing goals. . I became a PT as I love seeing people improve & so I could always have a job around the world. I do love to..force, I mean encourage buddies to come work out with me. Once u start in a fun environment, it becomes a habit & then boom results. I also have a bomb as PT too Oosh @forcexvelocity . Training 4 me keeps me positive, keeps a clear mind, & of course keeps that feel good look good factor. I laugh, smile, dance while I workout & so my body/mind recognises this is an awesome thing to do not a chore. TRY IT. CELEBRATE U . I am an AMBASSADOR for @f45_training_tamaki H.I.I.T training with @shavaughn_ruakere & hard out it is on another level epic. We go 6 mornings a week & one day off. . We're doing the F45 8 week challenge and were cracking up as we did our body scans yesterday & as I thought all that eating all that I can see & time off exercising parts of my body are screaming get that lean muscle back bish & drop this fat. I am over my normal measurements (busting out my shorts in Samoa you saw in my story 🤦🏼‍♀️) My Waist Hip Ratio came back VERY OBESE. You might think WTF!!! & get put off - But don't. When u get your scan, measurements, change your mindset "awesome those hips don't lie & all good that is where I am now & oooooweeee I am going to bring that score down to norm in 8 weeks & fit my shorts" Change it to a + cos I know I have been eating all the chip & dip & my core is alot weaker than before. BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF. . I am all about variety so keeping it fresh I mix barre, boxing (when I am not bionic woman with my wrist splints), RPM, pilates, Yin yoga @omyoga.studio , @oossh walks and loads of outdoor adventure.
