Description:

TMI: SEARCHING FOR HAPPINESS ON GOOGLE
We are connected constantly. I get up in the morning and check my e-mail. I check my text messages. I update my Facebook page. I read the top stories in the news. I check the weather. I tweet a thing or two. Then I leave my computer and turn on the TV. I download some TV information. Head to my car -- turn on the radio -- and drive to work while getting even more data. I check my GPS for traffic. I take a call or two in my car. It is clear: I am addicted to information! I know for sure - I took the test on "NetAddiction.com". I visit it at least 15 or 20 times a day. It really helps. Yes, there is a website for "Internet Addiction." Isn't that sort of like having an AA meeting with an open bar? So, I am an addict: I have all the warning signs: If I check my e-mail and I have NO messages - I check it again - immediately. Sometimes I send myself a message just to make sure my e-mail server is working. If I reach for my phone and it is NOT there - I panic. My heart races. I can't breathe. I want  to issue an Amber Alert for my phone. I am addicted to my phone - my information "supplier". I have all the information in the world - but am I happier?

I am constantly searching: "What time does that movie start?", "What was the dog's name on the Jetsons?", "Where can I find Crocs in size 16 (yes, I wear size 16)?", "What is the Meaning of Life?" And although I have global database at my fingertips, it seems like I know less than ever before. "TMI" will talk how frustrating life has become. I will share how "my searching" led me to understand which information is most important: The information I share with my family and friends. In an Age where we can connect to someone 1/2 way around the world, we forget that the one's we REALLY need to connect with are right in front of us.
