Staying positive isn’t easy these days. That’s why Dani DiPirro, the artist behind Positively Present on Instagram, does what she does. Her colorful and engaging illustrations serve as reminders to be kind to ourselves, to love the planet and those around us, and to connect more deeply with the present moment. November marked the return of her gratitude challenge, now in its 9th year, where her fans create journals documenting things that make them thankful. Her efforts have connected with a wider audience on social media, where she has over 700K followers on Instagram and another 10K on Twitter.
