Carrie Underwood (what fuels her soul) OC: …soul is happy. :46
“I think what fuels my soul is a balance of music, family, health, fitness, friends, work, all of it. Balance is — I feel it’s a word that people use all of the time, but it’s because people are searching for it. People are juggling trying to figure out how to make it all happen, and when you have your life and a sense of you feel balanced, your world is just so much better and you’re happier and you’re not stressed out. I feel like that’s what fuels my soul is when I do feel like I’m doing good things for myself and I’m being a good mother and I’m being a good wife. I’m giving all I’ve got to give in my job, which is making music. When I feel good about all of those things, my soul is happy.”
