先日、とあるメトロの駅にあるバスルームにてほんとうに感動したし、同時に自分の傲慢さに反省させられた、というお話になります。ボンジュール、ゆり香です、みなさまちょいとおひさしプリプリです♡
Today I wanna write about what I felt at bathroom of Tokyo metro the other day. The moment moved me, and changed me I think. Bonjour everyone, I am YURIKA♡


先日、とあるメトロの駅のバスルームつまりレディースのお化粧室に行った時、ちょうど男性スタッフさんがお掃除をしてらしたのだけど。
その方は、真剣な表情で、全身全霊をモップに傾けて水掃除をしていらっしゃいました。その姿にガツンと、ゆり香は殴られたような気持ちになった。
大きなハンマーで、頭をガツン、と。
The other day, when I went to a bathroom of a certain Tokyo metro station, yes I entered a ladies' restroom, and there’s a male staff who were cleaning up.
He had a serious look on his face, and cleaned up the floor with a mop. He was so serious at his work, that’s clear, as seeing his attitude. He was doing his job with all one's heart and mind and strength. His way of working was a huge shock for me. It’s like, I was hit by someone with a hammer.



というのもその前日の夜から、ずーっとゆり香はマイパートナーとマイドッグCOCOちゃんがじっと見る中、グダグダのクヨクヨ星人でした。要は、不平不満をグダグダ言ってクヨクヨしていたわけです。
不平不満の内容?もうお恥ずかしいがすぎまして書けませんよ。
The reason I got such a huge shock. At that time, I had been complained by the last night, at home, in front of my partner and my dog COCO who were staring me with no words. I had been complained & complained, about… no no, I cannot say what I’ve complained about, so ashamed…!

自分と性別の違うお化粧室って(ゆり香よく間違って入るけれどそれはさておき)、やっぱり入るだけでも照れくさいことだと思う。でもその男性は、そんなシャイなニュアンスを微塵も感じさせないソウルのこもった姿勢で、お掃除にせいを出していた。
その姿に、ああ美しい、と感じると同時に、自分が恥ずかしくなりました。クヨクヨ星人から、ゆでダコへ、です。
I think that being a bathroom which is sexually different from you, might be embarassing you know. Just entering is embarrassing(I often enter mens room, by mistake of course.).
But the man was serious, doing his job with his 100% energy.
It was me who felt embarrassed. I was so ashamed myself remembering that I was complaining about my situation, which was filled with blessing.



それ以来、と言うことはもう2週間ぐらいになるでしょうか、ゆり香毎朝自分に問いかけてる。
Since then, I am ask myself every morning by the moment I wake up.


何を優先して、生きる?
いまどんな、瀬戸際にいる?
今日ゆり香はどんな人間になる?
どんな夢を追う?
誰に何を伝える?
今夜ベッドに飛び込んで枕の中に頭が埋れていく瞬間、どんな感謝でいっぱいになる?
What is your priority in your life?
What is your situation right now?
What kind of person will do you wanna become today?
What kind of dreams are you pursuing?
What & to whom are you going to tell?
The moment you jump into the bed tonight with head fills in a pillow, what kind of appreciation will you have?



あの男性みたいに、今この瞬間に与えられているtaskに真摯に向き合い、全身全霊を込めてやりきり、今日という1日を生き抜くこと。不平不満ではなく、すでにたくさんある感謝なことで心をいっぱいにすること。
Like that man I saw at the bathroom, I strongly want to face the task given at this moment> I want to face with them with 100% energy, as the man.
No complain, but filled with appreciation surrounding me right now!!




ということで、いつもこんなゆり香に付き合ってくれている同居人&同居犬に、まずは感謝。
そしてあの男性にも、感謝です。
メルシー、メルシー。
OK for the first, I wanna say thank you to my partner(husband) and my lovely dog COCO, for being with me everyday.
And yes, I'm so grateful to the man.
Merci, merci.
