I was laid off last May from my job of 12 years. I was happy beyond belief.
I hated my job with a passion and only stayed because I couldn't find
anything else. My plan was to explore my writing but now I'm having doubts.
I'm of two minds: to write and to do work in the human resources field. I
want to be creative but I also want a steady paycheck as I have a family.
Now I just feel stuck. Should I pursue work in just one area or both?

Whenever big events happen, such as being fired, laid off, having an illness, etc... these things that disrupt one course and nudge us gently on another course, you can trust that the Universe is busy at work on your behalf.
The Universe follows the longings of your heart... and in this case, it did so easily. Even though you stayed "because you couldn't find anything else", it feels like the real reason you stayed was because of fear.
You were afraid that if you started your true path... what would happened if you failed? What would happen if given the opportunity, you couldn't make your dreams work? What would happen if you in charge of yourself, messed up?
So... you might fail, you might succeed, you might do a bit of all of it. When you look at the great creators in our society, the ones who really create an impressive body of work, you only see the highlights, the successes. I can assure you, these same people had a HUGE number of failures and setbacks.
The only difference was they keep going. They had the tenacity to follow their vision. To live vision-led, in full Flow of the Universe.
Right now, you have some time to do some deep soul inquiry, on what you really, really want. I would highly suggest you take my course Manifest Miracles, and after that, Moving from Stuck to Flow. Working through these courses will help you understand how the energy of the Universe works, and how you can live a life where you begin to live from one Flow experience to the next, no stickiness or stuckness required.
I would suggest you don't try to make a decision on your path yet. That would be jumping into something before you really know your heart. Instead, use the next month or even the whole summer to do soul inquiry.
The best things, the most clarity, the biggest revelations happen when we give ourselves space and time without distractions.
