What particular dream you’ve had in your younger years that still burns deep within you? Well, while many of us carry a special dream until adulthood, not everyone has the courage to chase it. It’s a different case for one brave transgender man from Florida named Jaimie Wilson.
Born a female, Jaimie had to face seemingly endless obstacles in order to realize his dream: to become a man. Within just a couple of years, he was able to achieve that, but not without sacrifices. From reassignment surgery and testosterone treatment to rigorous workouts, Jaimie has endured it all.
Since coming out in 2015, Jaimie has been a constant source of inspiration for many people especially those from the LGBT community. Earlier this year, one of his Instagram posts caught a lot of attention due to its powerful message.
The photo that accompanies the message also shows his remarkable transition from a female into a male.
DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER,” he captioned the photo. “I am posting this picture to show that not everyone has to show ‘signs’ to be transgender. You don’t have to pass a test to prove you’re trans… and you sure as hell don’t need ANYONE’S approval but your own.”
Jaimie, 21, also preached about the importance of “finding yourself and becoming you.” He wrote about his struggles after coming out, recalling how others refused to believe he was a man.
He hoped that through his post, people will understand better and stereotypes will be broken.
If someone has the guts to tell you ‘I’m transgender’ ‘I’m gay’ ‘I’m bisexual’ anything like that PLEASE BELIEVE them and be there for them because stereotypes need to be broken,” he implored.
Unfortunately, his courage to follow his heart and to live his dream life came at a hefty price. He admitted that he has lost contact with his family and many friends since he started his journey to becoming a man.
It wasn’t easy, but was worth it.
Jaimie, who is also a songwriter and musician, apparently has no regrets about his new life. As he continued to document his post-transition life on social media, he gained a lot of supporters in the process. His fans don’t only consist of transgender individuals or the LGBT community. He also earned the admiration and respect of many other people because of his empowering posts.
In yet another motivational post, he wrote:
Don’t let anyone tell you who you are. At the end of the day your body is no one else’s home but your own. Your taste in music, your sexuality, how you dress, the way you wear your hair…PLEASE don’t ever be ashamed of those things and better yet NEVER feel the need to change to make others around you happy.”

Overweight Couple Gets Married The Second Time After Losing 196 Pounds Together
During their first wedding, the bride felt miserable because she couldn’t find anything that would fit her. This time, the experience was very different!
Although most couples look back to their wedding memories with fondness, William and Janice Robertson wanted to get married again and take new photos. The reason, of course, is that they are very much different persons now compared to the first time they tied the knot.
You see, the husband and wife from Dunfermline, Fife were formerly obese but they have since worked out to lose weight together. The change is so drastic that they'd be a bit hard to recognize if you contrast the then and now.
When they were first married, both William and Janice loved junk food and didn't have time for exercise.

Heartwarming Video Shows Coma Survivor Standing Up To Kiss His Wife
His doctors said he only had 10% chance of survival. He proved them wrong!
Love, as they say, conquers all and for one vehicular accident victim, it is his love of life and the love of his spouse that kept him going despite the difficulties. Jonathan “Jonny” Grant was badly hurt during a car crash that happened just several days away from his fifth wedding anniversary. The tragic incident led to a severe brain injury which later left him in a coma.
After two months, however, he woke up from being in a coma and began to recover shortly thereafter – much to the amazement of the doctors who doubted if he would even be able to wake up or move again. In fact, they believed he only had a survival rate of 10%.
Fortunately, both Jonny and Laura, his wife, never gave up.
