It was the shipwreck that created the opportunity to self-examine, pare down his life, and study in Athens… since that was where he ended up when crashing between Phoenicia and Peiraeus.
The entire philosophy of Stoicism is built on the foundation of being able to achieve enlightenment and the good life after terrible circumstances befall you.
With that spirit in us, how could we not “seek out” shipwrecks?
We adapt and change and grow BECAUSE WE HAVE TO.
Embrace challenge… and grow!
