Keys to a Positive Mindset

If you want to enjoy the good things that life can bring and not the toxic ooze that can eat away at your soul – and your best pair of sneakers – then take a look at these 3 keys to a positive mindset. They will make your days happier and your nights less freaked out by flying squids.

Hope in the Face of Challenges

The other day I found myself in the middle of a smooth situation. I don’t mean it was easy by any stretch, but the phrase “hairy situation” just seemed completely inappropriate as flying squids were involved.

I was walking home from picking up some groceries at our local, organic market: Brains!

There’s not a lot of cleverness in zombie business names. On the flip side the store does alright with its slogan: Shopping so smart you’ll leave with more brains than when you started.

I was passing Larry Lake when I spotted a flying squid coming my way, just looking for someone to pull into the air and drop to the ground. I immediately turned around to head back only to see a scorse (scorpion-tailed horse) heading my way from the rear. With a lake to my right and untraversable terrain to my left, I was stuck. That’s when I remembered the 3 keys to a positive mindset.

Sure, I could just give up and find out which one would get me first, but I employed key number one: hope. I believed I would find a way out of this situation – at least I hoped I would.

Creative Approaches to Solutions

I had a couple weeks worth of plant-based brains in my bags and I wasn’t ready to ditch them. I also knew I couldn’t go forward, backward, or to my left. My only options were up, down, and to my right.

I had no way to dig or fly, so I was stuck with the lake. It was the only way out of this, but that created its own challenges. I could get in the water, but I would be easy to spot from the sky. The toxic ooze has a way of illuminating its contents. I could hide under the dock, but it was in such disrepair it didn’t do much to conceal what lies underneath.

I was holding on to hope, but I hadn’t yet fully embraced creativity, the second of the 3 keys to a positive mindset. What’s more, the scorse and squid were both closing in, but neither had yet noticed me.

The Scorse and the Squid sounds like a great name for a procedural crime drama. It also sounds like a terrible idea for a procedural crime drama.

That’s when it hit me: neither the squid nor the scorse would pay any attention to my bags’ plant-based payload. I could safely put them anywhere, and they would be ignored. I realized I could use the third of the 3 keys to a positive mindset to safely avoid these frightening foes: cleverness.

Clever Twists to Exciting Problems

I knew I had to go in the lake. I knew I had to avoid being seen. I knew that my brains were safe on their own.

The only wildcard was the bags. Sadly, I had been stuck in the mindset of seeing them as bags, but as I employed hope and creativity, I started to realize the bags didn’t have to be bags. Ripped open, they were giant sheets of… I’m going to say… hmmm… I don’t know what these are made out of.

You don’t want to know.

Anyway, I ripped open the bags, laid them on the dock, put the brains on top to hold them down, and then slunk underneath the dock and waited.

It wasn’t long until I heard the flapping of wings and the galloping of hooves. It was soon followed by neighing and that hearty beating of wings. I peaked out from under the dock to see the squid pull the scorse into the sky. After they were quite a ways up, I saw the scorse sting the squid and they both plummeted into the lake.

I took the opportunity to grab my things and go. A post-apocalyptic squid won’t stay stunned forever, and scorses can swim.
