Happy Diwali Everyone! This Diwali feels like a special one to me… mainly because I didn’t celebrate it. The first year that I didn’t think about it, plan for it, dress up for it, shop for it and pray at it was the one year that I learned the most about it. I remember going to school on this special day glowing inside knowing how important it was to me and my family and never having a place to share that feeling. Over the years I grew resentful and stopped thinking about it, telling people about it and sharing my gifts with others on this day. This year was different though.
