10x more positive

I've been thinking about how to stay feeling good when conversations drift into low vibing territory (graphic descriptions of someone's illness, street crimes, and the bad economy, for example).  I have definitely been resisting hearing about bad/sad news. 

So, I am looking for ways to feel good without resisting the conversation.  The idea I had today was to say 10 things that make me feel good every time I find myself in a conversation that doesn't feel good to me.  I might even begin to welcome conversations that initially don't feel high vibing to me because they give me the opportunity to be 10x more positive!!

What do you think?  Do you have ways of gracefully shifting conversations without resisting them?  Let us know by making a comment.
