What are the basic percentages in a personal budget?

My partner left her body last year. I left work to care for her. Went on unemployment. After she left I took the rest of the year off to grieve, reorient and help wrap up her estate. I've moved into a new space that I love. I was given the bulk of her estate, took care of debts, put the bulk of money in a 6 month CD so I could get my head clear as to what to do with it. I put aside some to help with the living expenses until I got on my feet again.
Unemployment is ending soon. What I've set side is running low. I really would like to stay out of the rest of the money. Work is coming to cover expenses yet I still want to begin a budget. I feel like my lover is now a "silent partner" with me and I want to do her (and the material wealth she left me) right.
I've got the Google budget software. I just am unsure of what the basic percentages are. Any help?
Also, a little encouragement would be cool and appreciated.
