When something's about as good as it's ever going to get, does that mean that it's about as good as you wish it could be? Even if it's not perfect; even if it has aspects about it that you hadn't anticipated, wouldn't it be wise to be thankful for the fact that you've managed to come close to your ideal? Unless, of course, 'as good as it gets' isn't somehow 'good enough' for you. It's all very well having high standards. Yet, even though it might not tick all your boxes, something's worth celebrating.
