The Journey of Self-Discovery: Exploring "Waving Through a Window"

Woman sitting on window sill of office building looking out at adjacent office towers.

Good morning! Once again, I’d like to share insight from the world of musical theater and explore the inspirational and heart-tugging song "Waving Through a Window" from the hit Broadway show, "Dear Evan Hansen." (#Ad) Get ready for some feels and a whole lot of motivation as we venture on The Journey of Self-Discovery: Exploring "Waving Through a Window”.

So, if you haven't heard it already, "Waving Through a Window" is that kind of song that hits you right in the feels, no matter where you are in life. It's a powerful and emotional anthem about feeling isolated, unseen and unheard. It's something many of us can relate to at some point, whether it's in high school, at work or in life in general.

Evan Hansen, the main character, belts out this song, expressing the loneliness and frustration of being on the outside, looking in. If you've ever felt like you're just a face in the crowd or that no one truly sees you, this song is your anthem. It's a reminder that you're not alone in feeling this way and it's a call to action to break through those invisible barriers.

But, don't worry, it's not all doom and gloom! This song isn't just about the struggle; it's about resilience, self-discovery and the journey towards self-acceptance.

Let's break it down:

"On the outside, always looking in" - Ever felt like you're on the periphery of life, watching others from a distance? We've all been there and it can be tough. But remember, you're not alone in feeling this way.

"Will I ever be more than I've always been?" - This line speaks to the desire for personal growth and change. The answer is yes, a resounding yes! You have the power to be more, to achieve your dreams and to become the best version of yourself.

"Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass" - This is the part where Evan starts to take action, tapping on the metaphorical glass that separates him from the world. It's a reminder that sometimes, all it takes is a little courage to start breaking through those barriers.

"I try to speak, but nobody can hear" - We've all had moments where our voice feels drowned out. But guess what? Your voice matters and it's worth being heard. Keep speaking up and standing out.

"Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?" - The most powerful part of this song is when Evan wonders if anyone sees him. It's a question we've all asked ourselves. But, remember, you are seen. You are heard. You matter. And there are people out there who are waving back.

The best part about "Waving Through a Window" is that it's not just a song; it's a reminder that you can change your narrative. You have the power to break through those invisible barriers, to be seen and to make your mark on the world.

So, the next time you're feeling like you're waving through a window, remember that you're not alone in that feeling. Take a deep breath, tap on that glass and keep moving forward. You've got a story to tell and the world is waiting to hear it.

And as you go about your day, blast "Waving Through a Window" and let Evan Hansen's journey remind you that you have the strength, courage and determination to break through any glass that stands in your way. You're not just waving; you're making a mark on the world.

Keep on waving, and keep on being you!
