Observe And Direct
When I was learning how to ski, my instructor told me to keep my eyes on where I wanted to go. He told me that my feet would follow my gaze so if I got afraid and started looking toward the object of my fear I would actually head that direction.
Ive found this to be some of the most helpful advice I've ever received because it's true off the slopes too! When we focus on our fear and mull it around in our minds we cannot direct our steps to good things. At best we became paralyzed with fear and at worst we head in the direction of the fear.
Being an observer of our thoughts means we can choose to direct the traffic of our minds. Just because we think something doesn't make it true. Part of being present in the moment is directing our thoughts and casting aside what isn't true and what doesn't serve us. It means shutting down the negative internal dialogue and pouring truth in so that we train ourselves to walk in truth.
This is half the battle! Our emotions follow our thoughts, and our actions are influenced by our emotions. The goals we want to reach, the life we want to have, it all starts with how we observe and direct our thoughts!
It takes practice but it's the most important form of exercise that we can do for ourselves. It makes every other goal easier to reach! As we get active in our thoughts life it shapes our outside reality! 💗 #thoughtsoftheday #bepresent #observer

I believe that being an observer of our thoughts is a healthy thing because we become mindful of our choices and decisions that we make for ourselves. Nowadays, I can say that it is what is lacking from people nowadays; mindfulness. We tend to come up with a decision without thinking of different possibilities that might be associated with it. Yes, it's true that our thoughts can never define us. But once the thoughts transcends to action, that gives you the identity for yourself.
