This is an interactive journal

It is designed for you to journal from Drue’s experience, also known as “Artist-Inspired” journaling.

How it Works:
1. Pause at moments when the story resonates with you.
2. Pull out a notebook and begin journaling. Free write distraction free for as long as you can. Pause and Play at your leisure.
3. Towards the end of the story, there is a journaling prompt for you to reflect and answer.
4. Go to the last 20 seconds of this video for the journaling prompt.

Three ways of Journaling

A) Write down what the artist said that you can relate to and start journaling.

B) Respond to the Journaling Prompt at the end of the interview.

C) Respond to the artist quote that we have chosen for each interview.

Journal for 15-40 minutes uninterrupted.

You Love Life Podcast Roman Wyden interviews The Love Effect film director Drue Metz  about intimacy among men and mental wellness, about brotherhood bonding, and love.

Roman: What is strength?

Drue: “Just Courage. Because you don’t need to be powerful to be strong. You just have to have courage. A person who is powerful can only go so far if they don’t have courage.”

Roman: What is real power?

Drue: “Real power is the ability to change something or someone, but the greatest power is indeed love.”


Producer: MJ and Roman Wyden; Film and Editing by Drue Metz
