I saw a Youtube video talking about the netflix show Bojack Horseman and it references Stoicism in talking about the shows philosophy.

The video talks about working each day to better yourself, taking responsibility for your actions and owning your own happiness through your actions and learning to love yourself. The video is worth a watch if you want a well made video explaining the show creators philosophy that life should not be spent with some great goal in mind, but rather living with the peaks and valleys of life and how that relates to Bojack.
