Keep your eyes on the Horizon

When I'm out sailing I keep my eye on the horizon for a few reasons. I use this technique to stay calm, cool and collected, especially in heavy swells. And I also do it to as I love the expansive feeling that I get when looking out to sea. I tried living in the Mountains once, but while they are gorgeous, I felt closed in. Keep your eyes on the Horizon is also a metaphor to stay focused on what's important in your life.
