Sasha Esprit Sloan  have courage & be kind 🦋 @missdeseret.ut

feeling extra blessed this conference weekend ✨

This last week has been nothing short of an emotional roller coaster, between my Grandpa Wally passing away, his funeral, my sister coming home from 2 years in Japan, celebrating my nieces & nephews birthday, photographing 2 weddings and having my whole family on the same continent for the first time in 2 years! Something that my Grandpa believed and passed onto all of us was that life was either a daring adventure or nothing at all. In the middle of all the craziness I am just feeling so grateful for my adventurous family and getting to do life with them. Ain’t nobody messing with my clique.

Today marks 3 years since I danced with Cinderella for the first time! ✨ I will never stop thanking God for the opportunity that I got to live out my dreams with this princess 🦋 “So much of me is made from what I learned from you.”

As a missionary I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I was guided by God. I believe that my life was literally saved by the protection of angels and I had experiences over and over where I felt God speaking to me directly and clearly. I know that I was guided by revelation, but that doesn’t mean that I’m a perfect person, or that I’m not prone to making mistakes! In the same way, I believe with my whole heart that the LDS Church is guided and led by revelation from God; that doesn’t mean every decision, policy or person is perfect. Over the last year or so I have been so excited about some of the changes rolling forward and the light and goodness that I just feel like is pouring out from heaven!! I know that little by little he is helping move things forward and helping the church become what he wants it to be. There is nothing in this life that I cherish as much as the knowledge of Jesus Christ and his atonement for my sins. In this world of imperfect people and painful experiences he is the only thing we can count on as truly being perfect. His teachings and the way he lived is the best example we can follow if we want to be happy. I don’t know why I’m rambling about this but I just wanted to say I’m SO grateful for the gospel and just wanted to share the good news. He lives, ya’ll. And missionaries can now call their families every week wahoo!!!!!!!

Throw me to the wolves, I’ll come back leading the pack 😏

Doing a good, old-fashioned roast on my story today! But the REAL roast is that I’ve cried 4 times over my Statistical Analysis class and it’s the second week of school 🙃 I usually like to do some kind of positive spin on the gram but today there is no positive spin, just wish I didn’t still count on my fingers and not know how to do long division 😂

Considering I’m on the go about 90% of my life, I’m a big fan of anyyyything that makes my makeup routine faster! If you’re like me and are always pressed for time, the #sonicblend brush from @michaeltoddbeauty makes blending so quick and easy! 💕 thank you @macys for sending one for me to try out!

Real talk ❤️ I have always, always, for as long as I can remember, felt uncomfortable in my own skin.
As a little girl I quit gymnastics because I felt so chunky in a leotard. As a high schooler I remember calming myself down from a panic attack before Prom because I thought I looked fat in my dress. I told myself for a loooong time that I could never even think about competing for Miss Utah because I didn’t have “the look.” I’ve always had a normal, healthy body type, but like a lot of girls, I swallowed the big fat lie that the only way to be beautiful was to be STICK skinny. And it went even farther than that— I started to believe that if I didn’t look that way, I wouldn’t be worth any thing at all. I thought that skinnier = better, more disciplined, smarter, funnier, cooler. It’s actually kind of insane how much I felt like my value was tied into the number on the scale or whether I had a thigh gap.
Over the last year I have put SO 👏🏼 MUCH 👏🏼 WORK 👏🏼 in learning to respect and love the skin I’m in. I still have a lonnnng way to go, for sure, but I know that I’ve come pretty far. I’ve had to learn to stop binge eating when I’m sad/angry/stressed, how to eat to FUEL my body and give it the nutrients that it needs, and how to be kind to myself every time I look in the mirror and see something less than what I would call “perfect.” If you’re going through something similar, I hope you know how much I love you. I have two pieces of advice that are simultaneously true: 1) you are beautiful just how you are. Period. Your value is not connected to your appearance. And 2) you should do everything in your power to be as healthy as you can— mentally, emotionally, physically. It’s hard. Loving yourself is hard. But lemme tell ya, hating yourself every day is not a good way to live your life. Your body is what it is, but your mind is malleable— start working there and things get a lot better ❤️ #GirlsEmpowered
