I read this forum for a few days and found several topics I thought would help me in my quest for a more mindful lifestyle, especially in the areas of financials and personal and family relationships, so decided to jump in. :)

Welcome and looking forward to your input.

Are you a guy? Maybe you could change your name to Heydude?

I kid. Welcome.

I'm not a guy, but don't mind if you call me Heydude.

Hello Forum follower, maybe we'll end up nicknaming you FF, as we end up with nicknames for nicknames around here! :)

If you don't mind, what are some of the specific issues you have on your mind? If not, ok too!

Don't mind if you call me FF or Hey dude or whatever. I'm interested in some of the threads on budget and savings, I'm pretty good at keeping to my budget but need to continually work at it. I also am interested in the relationship issues, and getting feedback on things happening in my life, I've already read some posts from others with similar issues and found the feedback encouraging. Sometimes you just need unbiased opinions from others. Thanks for all the welcomes.

I hear you on continually working on the budgets. I personally find the daily frugals thread to be most helpful for me in that respect. Sometimes I'll be standing in a store making X Y or Z decision and literally mentally crafting my post about it to the thread - and if that post comes up short, I pass! Doesn't always work, but often enough! :) Glad you are here!

There you are, I already have a new tactic idea, crafting the post is a good idea.

Oh no we can't do that, haha! One of our long term members named HeyDude left. But it's great that you are here to take his place.

Welcome, Forum Follower! You'll soon get used to the running jokes interwoven through this board. One started long before I joined, but it has to do with an impassioned debate over salad spinners. Which, incidentally, I just read are great for extracting water from sweaters and delicates recently washed by hand. Who knew?

Anyway, welcome again and we're glad you're here.

I'm new to this forum. I've been practicing the steps from Your Money Or Your Life since 1992 and quit full time work in 2010. My husband and I live in Northern CA with our 2 special needs adult sons and I have a small financial planning practice. I'm looking forward to "meeting" all of you! Diane

Hi Diane, welcome!

You'll find a lot of wonderful people, ideas, and resources here. Glad to have you with us.

Welcome, Diane! I didn't follow YMOYL specifically, but my DW and I have managed our finances well enough that I was able to quit work last May. I'm looking forward to learning more about you as you post!

Hi forum follower,

Glad you jumped in. There is such a great crew of people hear living in a manner for up you to gain insight from them. I bet you have a lot to share too! Christine

It's good to be here. I posted something a couple of weeks ago and can't find it. :) I've been practicing the principles from Your Money Or Your Life since 1992 and stopped working full time in 2010. It's fun to read your posts. I like reading about other people who live simply and are working to make the planet a better place to be.

Take care.

thanks for the warm welcome!!!! Diane

thank you Steve. Good job on being able to quit full time work last May. Most people I talk to will be working for many years to come. I'm happy our family made choices we did so we could leave full time work.

thank you! Diane
