What is it about music that makes it so powerful? Nothing like Jo Dee Messina’s Greatest Hits to get me through, “A Little Down Time.” And yes, I still have her CD. Music really has a way of connecting us, physically and emotionally moving us, giving us strength during difficult times and even inspiring us during adversity.

We know our Steeping followers are going through some hard times. As if Covid-19 wasn’t enough, racial injustice, election fatigue, and economic uncertainties have many wondering where they can turn for some much needed support. This week, may we suggest music? And not just any music, but songs with lyrics that focus on happiness, hope, resilience and compassion.

While we are going to share our Top 12 confidence and empowerment boost playlist with you, we also invite you to create your own playlist and please, share your personal anthem in the comments below!
