Not All Who Wander Are Lost


To remember who you are, you need to forget who they told you to be. You have a path and a purpose. Regardless of what anyone says, its time to find it.

You are the fabric and structure of existence itself...

The universe is a fireworks show to celebrate that existence IS.

This is the secret to life: To be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.


There is a cycle of adulthood. We all know it. You wake up and do the same thing every day but you want different results. If you want something new, you'll have to break out of that cycle. The overarching theme here will be to break out of that cycle and become who we are meant to be. And we are meant for so much more than what we believe.

We are destined for greatness. Live the life that you deserve.



My name is Ryan and I run Helm of Awesome. I went to the University of Illinois and never really considered getting into writing. I have another full time job which I enjoy but writing has become my new hobby. In addition to writing, I enjoy being outside and taking in nature. I love to ride my bike, to kayak and to read. Ironically I mostly abandoned social media for several years because of the lack of substance and the constant negativity. I am back now under the name HelmofAwesome to try and spread some more positivity and write more substantial content. I focus on a more mindful living and getting back in touch with nature.

I hope to make the internet a more uplifting and positive place. I have seen a great deal of benefits in my own life after adopting the practices of yoga and meditation. In conjuncture with nature, mindfulness and healthy eating, I believe we all can live more fulfilling lives and thus improve our happiness. Live light, travel light, spread the light, be the light.
