Improve Your Life Skills With Authentic Tamales

Good life skills make communities go round smoothly, so be intentional this new year in 2024. I encourage you to look into the condition of your “soft skill tool kit.” Cleaning up, sharpening or simply picking up and using those “hidden talents'' will help make life easier to navigate. According to the ATYLA Foundation Looking at the list of skills that are normally listed as soft skills, the most accurate definition is: soft skills are the skills that cannot be learned theoretically, but have to be experienced and pratised in order to be improved.” One of the best ways to perfect your life skills is through hospitality, not as a job, but in your daily life, by using those personal attributes to positively affect those around you.

Hospitality is being kind, considerate, generous, helpful and friendly with others. People appreciate a friendly welcome. Businesses will prosper with genuine and helpful customer care. Individuals will enlarge their society when they practice sincere hospitality.  Hospitality can be simple gestures, like a friendly smile or elaborate ones like a generous gift. Most assuredly, food is almost always a part of a nice hospitable experience, a very welcoming gesture.  Food brings people together with a sense of comfort and well being. Delicious Mexican tamales are an excellent source of hospitality. 

Simply stated, food gifts are good old fashioned Hospitality. According to the situation and traditions, appropriate food gifts are appreciated and comforting. 

  • Kids that discover the skill of sharing their candy at an early age gain friends and the benefit of reciprocated candy gifts.
