He has found a perfect way to stop complaining and going back to the sad days. It's perfect because so far, he hasn't had any problem with it. That's perfect, yes? He has dialed down his hopes and expectations that everything is near-perfect now. He found the balance of expecting and letting go, of wanting the best for one's self and being able to say "Ah well." This balance is what he needed for years. Now he can see only the bright side and the brighter side, if any. Whatever's bad is painted over. Not forgotten, just blissfully ignored.
