Does My To Do List Make My Butt Look Fat?

I recently made the most astonishing discovery.

This is going to change the shape of buttocks everywhere!!!

To-Do Lists are fattening!

Yes. Your To-Do List can make your butt look fat. As in…

It actually makes sense. Your ass is a reflection of your mind. If you’ve got a lot of shit going on in your head, your ass is going to try to get your attention. In a BIG way. And it’ll just keep getting bigger ’til you finally pay attention.

It’s your body’s way of squealing on your mind. Your body really doesn’t like being messed with.

Your To-Do List is a snap shot of what’s actually going on in your head.

Whoa! I’m no electrician but those wires look dangerous. 

And by the way: how many items on that To-Do List do you actually WANT to do? Because THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS “HAVE TO DO” ANYTHING.

Yes, I know, my little Poppet.

This should be GOOD news! You don’t have to do anything.

You don’t. I repeat:

You simply do not HAVE TO do ANYTHING. Nobody can MAKE you do anything. You are not a child. You are an adult.

You get to choose EVERYTHING.

And if you insist on fighting me on this I am going to have to come over there and kick you in the shins REALLY HARD!!!!


A belief is not a fact.

BELIEF: I have to do everything  

FACT:  I don’t have to do anything. Ever. 

Now what? Do you still want to hold onto that belief? Because it’s not working for you. In fact, it’s actually hurting you. And look what it’s doing to your ass!!!

The belief that you “have to do everything” makes your butt fat because the belief makes you feel bad (frustrated? angry? resentful?) and so you procrastinate, but you still feel yucky and you don’t want to, but that list is staring at you, and you HATE it and you just want all those crazy wires out of your head so you can have some PEACE AND QUIET IN THERE.

And so… you EAT.

And then you CRY.

And then you repEAT.

See how this works?

Cry + Eat + RepEAT = Pumpkin Butt

Put that list down Poppet. Untangle those wires in your head. Rest.

And then decide what it is you WANT to do on that list. From a place of wanting, truly WANTING — that’s the only way to do anything.

Let me know what you BELIEVE in the comments below.

*******Hey… if you want to learn how to re-wire your brain so that you can shrink your Pumpkin Butt, get your Pumpkin ass in THIS CLASS! 




  1. I most enjoy the details in your artwork, Lin! They get me every time. I especially hooted and hollered over, “Stencil driveway” and “Visit prison.” Classic!

    • LOL, Dana… you GET me, you really get me! thank you for letting me know. xo

  2. thanks, I needed that! especially the “you are not a child” part. This timeless reminder made my day.

    • Hey KH… you are very welcome! I appreciate the feedback. 😉

  3. Those wires in my head = to do list….ouch! Ta done! No more headaches and no more pumpkin butt!!

  4. I stopped to-do lists almost 2 years ago – and my butt still looks like a pumpkin.

    If I were to write a to-do list these days it would include read excellent blogs (like this one), read excellent books (like “The Night Circus” – you would love it, if you read fiction. Do you read fiction? I mean, a person like yourself who keeps to such factual topics might be more of a non-fiction person. In which case you wouldn’t especially appreciate “The Night Circus”. If you didn’t like “The Night Circus” I might find you just a titch less fascinating. Just a fitch.)

    As you can see my wires aren’t exactly messing up in an array of “don’t want to” colours but they are very curvy. Maybe that’s why my butt still looks like a pumpkin?

    • Hi Caitlyn: first things first: no matter what, you must LOVE your adorable Pumpkin Butt!
      Next: I love what you ‘would’ put on your to-list if you had one — your taste in blogs is impeccable. 😉
      Then: Thank you for the book suggestion … I am due to read a a good fiction book — yes, I tend to read a lot of non-fiction and that’s GOTSTA STOP for a minute.
      Finally: Pumpkin Butt is a signal — look into those wires and see which ones are getting crossed.
