Why is it we pay more attention to 'negative' emotions. Often we feel sorry for ourselves because we forget to notice the 'positive' emotions and focus only on those that create suffering. Why not try just noticing how you feel without placing any value judegment on it. This doesn't mean you won't appreciate the good feelings, but will allow you to first find a balance, a starting point, from where you can decide what you want to focus your attention on.
