8回買った、1冊の本。

 

年の瀬ですね。と使う、何気ない言葉。年の瀬。

「瀬」は川の瀬のことを表していて、川の水位が低く浅い部分を指して、川全体の中でも急激に速さが早まるところ、らしい。そこから、「年末の慌しい時期」を指すのだとか。

まさにその言葉の意味と同じように、なんだか少しそわそわするような感じと、

一方で 意識が内側に向いていくような、そんな感じもする。

その表現は「年の暮れ」という言葉がぴったり。

 

そんな年の暮れ。年末に急に読み返したくなって、買ったこの本。

今日はこの本の紹介をしたい。

喜多川泰さんの「手紙屋ぼくの就職活動を変えた十通の手紙

この本には、「学び」をテーマにした 蛍雪編もあり、就職活動の方は「はたらく」がテーマになっている。

私は喜多川さんの本がとても好きで。

どんなところが好きかというと、自己啓発のように、生き方や考え方に大切なことが詰まっているのだけど

それがすべて ストーリーの中に盛り込まれているところ。この、ストーリー、小説の中に入っているというのが、たまらなくいいと思うのだ。

映画だと、著書「「また、必ず会おう」と誰もが言った。」が映画化されたストーリーが人に知られていると思う。

 

8回購入した、1冊の本。

タイトルにあるように、私はこの本を かれこれ8回以上は購入したと思う。

にもかかわらず、1冊も手元にない。笑 正確には、昨日まで無かった。

それは、私がどこかに置いたり忘れたりし続けたというわけではなくて(その可能性もありそうな人物であることはわかっているけど笑)、いつも誰かにプレゼントしていたことに理由がある。

 

ある就職活動生と「手紙屋」を名乗る、手紙の返事を書く手紙屋さんとの10通の手紙のやりとり。

『1冊の本との出会いで人生が変わる』と謳う喜多川さんの本は、

あっと驚く展開と日常の自分と連動して紐解く瞬間が生まれる、そんな気づきを届けてくれる本で。

 

学生時代も、社会人になっても、時おり、 友人の相談に乗ることがあった。

20代の悩み事の一つは、「はたらく」ことに関する内容も多い。

でも 私もまた、同じように20代であったから、聴くことはもちろんできるけれど、何を語れるというわけでもない、と思っていて、それで その返事の代わりのように、この本を渡していた。

何を言う(言われる)というよりも、自分の中で発見することが、結局人を変えるとも思ってたからだと思う。

 

数多くの名著を手がける喜多川さんの本の中でも、この本は私のバイブル1,2位をあらそう本で。

私は 本を読む時には たいてい、『そこからわかって行動できること』を手帳に起こして

それを1週間ぐらい見て暗記して、実践することが多いのだけれど、(基本的にコスパが高い行動が好き)

この「手紙屋」さんの本もまた、同じようにメモに起こして 実践してた。

その時の手帳を、いまでもよく覚えてる。 EDIT のダイアリーページになっている手帳の中に。

 

 

今日はその中の一節。

メモを起こした 最初の言葉。

「まわりの人に、どんな称号を与えていますか?」

これは人を自分の思い通りに変えてやろう、とかそんな乱暴な話ではなくて。

人には、どんな側面だってある。

怒りっぽいよねと言われたら それだけではないと言葉が出るし、

優しいよねって言われたら そんなことないよと反発的に思う。

つまりは、誰の中にもどんな側面でもあるということ。

過不足なく、あらゆる性格が備わっている

 

私は、身近な人に、どんな称号を渡してるだろう。

それが、もらって嬉しくない称号に、なっていないかな。

そしてきっとそれは、まわりめぐって、私が私自身に与えている称号、になるんだろうなあ、と思ったり。これは、今読んだからこそ気づけたこと。

 

初めて読んだあの頃から、気づけば 少しずれていたり、すっかり忘れていたり。

そんな、見直しの年の暮れの一晩。

そういえば、この本を渡してくれたのも、母だった、と 思い出した。

    The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
