Being in charge of your walk

The young woman I work with is just learning to use her head switches to say stop and go when we are out for a stroll. With her 21st birthday around the corner, she now has the power to pause and take in the smells of nearby flowers or hear the wind chimes beckoning from a porch nearby. At first my instinct was to encourage her along, not stopping too long in one place. Then I realized this was her walk. I just happened to be pushing her wheelchair.How are you taking charge of your walk?
