    Throw one's way

    I would appreciate it if you could tell me what "Throws your way" means in the following sentence:

    "No matter what life throws your way, your recovery from even the most unimaginable adversity is likely to be quicker and more complete ...."

    Thanks.

    "No matter what life throws your way" means "Regardless of what situations, problems etc life puts in your path/puts in front of you/pushes in your direction..."

    So it doesn't matter what situations you are faced with in life, your recovery...

    "To throw" = the normal meaning
    "Your way" = in your direction / towards you
