We have all been there. Working a job that, while fulfilling, isn't exactly what we want to do with our lives. Many of us have thought this way at least once in our lives, but few have actually gone through and done something about it.

One Canadian politician decided he had had enough of politics and decided to quit, pack up his life, and move to the Bahamas to become lifeguard.

Jordan Nowlan was just 18 years old when he was elected to the city council in Dieppe, New Brunswick. He wasn't even old enough to drink when he started governing his home city. He has faithfully served his city for the last five-and-a-half years, but he recently decided that he needed a change in his life.

"I absolutely loved being an elected official," said Nowlan from the Bahamas. "But I saw it (lifeguarding) as an opportunity to take a bit of a break from politics to focus on myself and to be able to grow as a person."

New Brunswick is one of Canada's Maritime provinces, and it can be quite cold and snowy through the winter, so it isn't hard to understand why he would want to head to the Bahamas.
