The UPlifting music series was a weekly music post submitted by a reader or one of the writers of The UP Lab with the intent to help the listener relax, stay positive, and keep pushing on through life. The sharing of an uplifting song is generally an act of sharing something very personal and we believe this to be the essence of these music posts. Enjoy!
